for VOICE Students:   I usually associate singing the song with some kind of activity, usually passing a bouncy ball to the beat, or throwing it back and forth. From there, we progress to tapping the beat or the rhythm while singing. Then we’ll combine the two: student claps the rhythm while I tap the beat, and vice versa. I want my students to be able to clearly distinguish these two elements, and to be able to feel and maintain a steady beat which will set them up with a strong foundation for playing more advanced music. I’ve had mixed success with students singing in tune. Some have no problems. With others, I’m working hard with them at recognising and singing high and low notes as well as pitch matching. From there, I teach them to play each song on the piano through imitation. Through spaced repetition and regular review, I expect them to play these pieces from memory. What I’ve observed is that there seems to be a spectrum: some students have a far easier time of memorising the songs and playing them at the piano. Others have become stuck on the same pieces even after a period of a few weeks, so I move on to other songs, games and fall back to the method book to keep their momentum going and so they don’t get sick of trying to do the same songs every week.   for PIANO Students:   From the first lesson I teach the student to find the C and the F, which are the keys to the left of the group of two and three black keys respectively. I quiz them by asking them to identify the note that I am playing. It takes only a minute. When each one is secure, I add more on, and I do this over the course of several weeks. The G and A, in between the three black keys. Then the D, in between the two black keys. Finally, the E and B, to the right of the group of two and three black keys respectively. I spend a couple of minutes every week quizzing them on their keyboard note identification until this has become a solid foundation for them. For additional practise, I have them colour in worksheets in addition to the quizzing. We also play the keyboard race game which is always a hit with students. A number of my new students in this age category are transfer students who have been learning for some time and are reading music notation in their method books, despite having significant trouble identifying notes on the keyboard quickly. At times, I see students counting up from C to find a G or an A, so will take the time to reinforce the information that G and A is in between the three black keys, and practise finding them quickly. I want these keyboard geography skills well and truly secure in their minds long before starting to associate them with musical notation.

Instruments:

I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1962 and I have been passionate about music, especially drumming since I was a toddler. My mother used to take me along to her aerobics classes and at that time a drummer would play a drum to keep a beat for the class instead of having recorded music playing through the speakers. I was absolutely fascinated by his drum beats and I was always trying to play along with the drummer during the class.   It was not until I was 13 years old that I had my first drumset but during all those years until then I collected and constantly played many brazilian percussion instruments, which acctually gave me a very stong foundation in drumming and also in the Brazilian popular rhythms. Very soon after, I started my professional drumming career playing for musical theater productions which led me to many other projects and soon I was showcasing as a drummer in National tours, Radio and TV programs in Brazil. I attended renowned music schools in Brazil to improve my skills in drumming, music theory and musicianship. I started giving private drums instructions when I was 20 years old, few years before I decided to come to California in 1989 to attend the Musicians Institute where I graduated with Honnors mention in the Certificate. Parallel from being an active performer in Los Angeles, California I got involved with the teaching aspect of drumming since 1997 which for me is an extremelly rewarding activity, where I can pass on everything I've learned trhough the years about music, drumming and enriching relationships.
