Overview:

I am a drummer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and educator from Costa Rica. I have been teaching music for over 15 years now and I am passionate about the teaching process as much as I am about the music itself. I graduated in 2012 from Berklee College of Music in Boston and I have been living in New York City since. I have toured in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Malaysia and the US. I worked with Award Winners Felipe Staiti (Enanitos Verdes), Luis Enrique (Prince of Salsa), Marcos Valle, Matt Garrison and more.

EXPERIENCE

I started teaching private drum lessons as soon as I finished high school and I have not stopped since. My first instrument was the Organ, and I have played the guitar for as long as the drums since 1999. Then my musical expertise was rounded up at Berklee where I learned advanced music theory and music production alongside instruments. My mother is an educator and I always felt like teaching is a separate skill from knowing how to play music. I feel very committed to the exploration of the teaching process on it's own.

METHODS USED

Music is a language! Therefore I try to first get students of any age to be able to speak before reading it. But I also encourage learning how to read and write music which is a great tool, even to remember you homework. The lessons are divided in technical, theoretical, practical and repertoire; we work towards learning songs that you can ultimately play with other people. But I also build the core with technique and theory so that you can become a well rounded musician at your own pace. The lessons are flexible and catered to your needs and preferences.

LESSON STYLE

I love the challenge of finding that point in between motivating and challenging a student. I believe music should be fun! But it should also be a little challenging as well as rewarding. Music also has many benefits for brain development that no other discipline provides; for example training both brain hemispheres and synchronizing sight, ear and touch senses. Other important aspects include the development of social skills, listening to others, understanding your role in an ensemble and knowing when to play more or less.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm.
