    5 stars aren’t enough to rate my experience with this teacher! Don’t think twice, you will not regret it!

  • Louis Herdosa

    The of patience and optimism Moise has when teaching is unmatchable. I love the way he encourages me to keep at it when I get a discouraged and end getting it!! One of the best decisions I made is to study with him. Thank you!

  • Mandy

    Moise is the best drummer I’ve ever seen. He’s definitely professional, responsible and reliable. I love having class with him cuz it’s so much fun!! He gets the skills and more importantly he knows how to teach students. Again, best teacher/ drummer I’ve ever seen.

Students will be taught the basics of drumming depending on the current skill level. Starting with understanding every part of the instrument and working on specific techniques for both hands and feet for accurate and precise playing.

exercises will be given for increasing speed,indurence, accuracy and fluidity

Students will learn to understand and play different genres of music at different speeds and intensities starting with learning drum parts to their favorite songs to then improvising and learning beats and fills applicable to different and all genres of music.

I've trained for 5 years under Christian Pepin, a Grammy winning musician and instructor in San Francisco. 

participated in a Berkelee College of Music Extension Course in drum instruction and teaching techniques.

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with students who are just beginning to learn the instrument and need all the proper techniques tips and direct pointers to avoid all the pitfalls I went through in my early days as a kid

I also teach intermediate students who know their way around the instrument but are looking for a more masterful aproach to playing and expanding their skill sets and genres. Giving them specific excercises to move their drumming to the next level


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Pick one you like, and get along with. trust their feedback because they're only looking out for your best interest. 

also you can spend thousands of dollars on lessons but if you're not putting the time in on your own to practice you're only wasting your money and the valuable time the instructor invests in you. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What am I learning the instrument for? 

what specific genres do I want to play and learn? 

How much time can I devote to practicing? 

am I looking to eventually play in front of people?
