In my lessons, I base the material on the student depending on how advanced they are. If the student is just starting out, I will teach them the basics such as holding the drumsticks properly, basic rudiments, reading rhythms, learning about the hardware, and so on.
If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask :D

- Teaching since:
I started playing drums when I was in second grade and formed a band with my 2 older brothers who played bass and guitar. It was something to do when we younger but when I got into high school, I took playing drums a lot more seriously. I was in a very competitive marching band playing bass drum and tenors in the drumline and at the same time, I was introduced to jazz drumming. The improvising aspect of jazz drumming sparked my love for it because the freedom it gave me to express myself was something drumline could not do. After getting state recognition for my playing in jazz bands, I transferred to a high school with a more intensive jazz program. I am currently a jazz studies major at California State University, Sacramento. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!+ Read More
I’m a visual learner. It was very helpful that Gabriel provided the music sheet. It helped me to see and hear how he played the rhythms on the drum. I’m looking forward to my next lesson.
Gabriel is great! he is so patient with my seven year old grandson and has a wonderful personality. He is making the drum lessons fun.
Very polite and patient. Goes with the flow in teaching with no rigid rules , making it enjoyable for the kid.
Gabriel is great with being patient and explaining specific skills for my 6 yr old son. We appreciate how he shows what he means to give hands-on guidance.
Gabriel was on time. He was very respectful, patient in his style and made session interactive and fun for my son.
