Danilo is a really great drum teacher. Challenging, but also meets you at what ever level you're at. When limbs don't know how to rally together for a new thing, he's a very good cheerleader until it comes together or helps make it make sense to break through that wall. Enjoys good music too. Super recommend.
Charles
Great teacher. Fills me with confidence. Also it is awesome and inspiring to hear him play.
Lynn
Danilo is great! He adjusts each weeks lesson to adapt to my needs. Patient, easy going, and very knowledgeable about what I need to work on and giving me exercises to work on between lessons. Highly recommend!

Private Percussion Teacher

***I am a freelance musician/percussionist in the NYC area but I am currently teaching online lessons from my Texas home in the midst of the pandemic.***

Being from Texas, music education became a huge part of my life from the moment I picked up a pair of sticks in 2001. I received two performance degrees from very prestigious music/percussion programs (Florida State and Eastman School of Music) and I have been private teaching since 2013. Lessons with me could set you up for either great success and/or to simply have a very good time learning something new. Whatever goals you have, I will do my very best to fulfill them. I have training on the following instruments: marimba, xylophone, vibes, bells, snare drum, timpani, drum set, auxiliary instruments (tambourine, triangle, cymbals, tom-toms, etc) and a few hand drums. I currently have access to a drum set, marimba and drum pad/snare drum.

My son Christopher received private lessons from Ms. Gartin when she was here at Brennan High School. He learned so much from her and gained such a confidence in himself. She taught him so much, and helped him discover his passion for music. HIGHLY recommend her for lessons! We miss you Ms. Gartin!

My daughter took drum lessons with Sarah. She made huge advancements in percussion during this time and the relationship between her and my daughter was remarkable. It is a blessing to find someone that your children bond with and look up to.

Private Percussion Teacher

I have a lot of experience playing all kinds of percussion! I've been doing it since I was in middle school, and have gotten a degree in Percussion Performance.

I've always played because I genuinely enjoy it, and I'd like to help people who are trying to get better for auditions, or just want to learn a piece.

These are your lessons, so we'll try to hit whatever your goal is. If you want to defer to me, then I'll start you off with basics like refining your technique, and making sure we can keep tempos steady - things that will apply to everything you play.

About Cameron

Hey I'm Cameron, I'll try to cater lessons to your goals and have fun in the process. I love sharing my knowledge, musical experience, and love for music! High energy and engaging!

"Great teacher!

Henri is great!! He is a super experienced and knowledgable drummer (musician) and teacher. He is extremely patient, has taught me my basics, technique, and is very open to teaching what you want to learn, willing to teach you what you are really interested in musically. At the end of every lesson, he reviews what we learned, writes it and lets me video it so I can practice at home. He has been really flexible, patient, laid back and always down to work on whatever you want but great at coming up with lessons that challenge and excite you as well. I could'nt be more pleased with Henri as a teacher. I always look forward to my lessons."

"Kevin asked pertinent questions about my background and used that information to tailor the first lesson. He went beyond the scheduled 30 minutes to provide a complete and coherent beginning to my studies: the extra time did not upset my schedule and I appreciated his going beyond to get me off to a good start. Kevin had a lot of stuff to present yet allowed me to interrupt with questions, which he knowledgeably answered. His personality is relaxed and friendly. Observing him with another student before my lesson, I saw that he offered criticism considerately.
My first lesson was a good experience (4 stars). I don't know if he is the best ever (5 stars), but he must be darn close."
