BM Berklee College of Music, Professional Music --- Los Angeles College Academy diploma, Drumset
2010 Avedis Zildjian Percussion Award
I am an Argentinian born, Brazilian raised drummer/percussionist based in Brooklyn since 2011. I spent the previous three years studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston. I've been teaching since 2005, and it's one of my favorite things to do. The feeling of passing your knowledge along to someone else and see them become better musicians is very satisfying to me. I also work on Broadway, off-Broadway and with several artists as a touring/recording musician.
I have been teaching since 2005, a few years before moving to the USA. In Boston I started teaching privately while attending Berklee College of Music. In New York since 2011, I've worked for School of Rock and Jammin' With You, teaching both private students and at the school facilities. Lately I've been focusing on teaching in my private studio in Brooklyn or at the student's home.
It depends on the age. For younger students, we may start with basic drumming or percussion techniques, drumstick grips and rudiments. Older, more experienced students may study from more advanced drum books and progress deeper into the study of technique and playing along with tracks, and learning to write drum parts.
I like to think of myself as a teacher that suits the student's needs. And since every one has a different way of playing an instrument, I will build a specific "curriculum" for each student. I am not a strict sort of teacher, I like to talk about what we are learning, show musical examples, play examples and generally just have a good flow in class. The most important thing is to learn that playing an instrument should be a fun, entertaining learning experience.
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. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
