Drumming for all ages and skill levels! Whether you are getting ready to play a show, getting ready for an audition, or are just playing drums as a hobby, I am here to teach you! With material from a wide range of sources i.e books, your favorite records, or videos from another drummer you idolize, you will master the art in no time. In my lessons you will learn to understand drum notation, read a drum chart, learn a song by ear and hopefully apply these to write your own songs! We will also cover concepts like stage presence so you can feel comfortable performing. Learning material in the drum shed is just half the battle, the other half is taking it to the stage and performing in front of an audience with your band. I am here to get those stage fright jitters out of your system so you can feel confident when you walk out on to that stage to rock.

About Xavier C.

I grew up in Denver, Colorado in a family filled with musicians. My father plays guitar and is a music producer, my mother is a bass player, and my uncle is a drummer which is where I found my love for percussion. I moved to Los Angeles five years ago to pursue my music career. While attending college at Musicians Institute, I received a degree in Drum Performance and a minor in Audio Engineering. I began playing drums, bass, and guitar at a very young age and ended up sticking with the drums because behind the drum kit is where I feel most at home. All through out my childhood I took many lessons from local drummers and even attended a local School of Rock to further my studies as a young drummer. I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be a Musician and share my love for the arts with the people around me. Drumming should be fun, freeing, and experienced to the fullest extent and I would love to help.
