I'm Dale! 26 years old from San Antonio TX. I've spent 2 years studying for my Associates of Arts in Performance for Percussion at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. I started playing drums when I was 7 years old, playing bongos during church. I marched on my high school's line all 4 years of school (snare two years, tenors two years) and marched a season of DCI indoor drumline in San Antonio. Since then I've been in numerous bands in Texas, recorded multiple EP's and played hundreds of venues including the White Rabbit in San Antonio, Texas, The Vibe in Austin, Texas, to The House of Blues on Sunset Blvd. I have a passion to the drumline/drum corps approach to drumming, since most of my speed, technique and endurance came from marching, but also appreciate, teach, and love every single style on the drum kit.
Books: The Encyclopedia of Reading Rhythms - Gary Hess Its About Time - Fred Dinkins *** Lesson Details *** I want YOUR DRIVE AND PASSION TO PLAY DRUMS to set the pace for our lessons. A motivated and aspiring player leaves endless possibilities behind the kit! Lessons will start with a nice, rudimental warmup to get those hands and muscles warm. We'll focus on playing technique, muscle memory, as well as the key rudiments played by marching drummers and drum set players worldwide. Once we're warm, we'll move to getting that full, solid sound out of the drum set. Focusing again on technique (behind the kit now) and basic patterns to work on getting a great sound. We'll finish up by playing/jamming to your songs of choice, or ...
The first instrument I taught myself was drums, so helping others learn is very special to me. Materials used during drum lessons include the Hal Leonard publications The Visual Drumset Method and Drum Aerobics.
Hello and thank you for viewing my profile. My name is Felipe Garcia and I am a self-taught music teacher. I began teaching music in 2010 and have loved it ever since. I believe learning to play music can be fun and easy, and I work hard to make sure your experience with music is one that will inspire you to keep playing for the rest of your life, for as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “without music, life would be a mistake.” My experience with music began long ago when I begged my parents to buy me a drumset and they finally gave in and bought me one when I was 14. Prior to that, I had no real experience with music except as a listener. I taught myself how to play by playing along with CDs of my favorite bands and eventually I felt like the drums wasn't enough, so I talked my parents into ...

Hello! My name is Cristina and I have been playing drums since I was a child. After graduating high school, I decided to continue to pursue music. For the past 4 years I have been studying Percussion and Drums, first at the University of Houston, and presently, and the University of Texas at San Antonio with plans to finish my Bachelor of Music degree.

I've been a Drum Set teacher for over 30 years. I base my courses in what I learned at the Drummers Collective in N.Y. I cover as many styles as possible. My main goal as a teacher is for you to become a better drummer, cause a better drummer is happy drummer.
I studied classical percussion in college and then specialized on drums at the Drummers Collective in New York City. I have toured with bands and played many times in front of crowds of more than 25 000 people. I have TV experience as well. I also have worked as a session drummer on several records for big labels (BMG and Sony Music among them). I work as a producer and my approach to teaching comes from my love of Music in general. I have been a drums instructor for more than 30 years and my students always get the gigs. I speak English and Spanish. My teaching style is fun and has a very clear outline, remaining flexible within it. I keep learning and practicing every day, and am very open to having fun together while learning. If you practice, the results are shown on every lesson and ...
