Johnny Conga is a excellent instructor. I am proud to call him my maestro. You won't be disappointed. He is like a skilled surgeon diagnosing your weaknesses and then skillfully applying the right procedures or in this case exercises that if you practice dutifully will help strengthen your playing taking it to the next level. I highly recommend him.
From pupil...Robert Heym..... I had an on-line lesson with Johnny Conga today; it completely put to rest any concerns at all that I had with the effectiveness of on-line lessons. Within the first few minutes, Johnny Conga had identified the technical flaws that were inhibiting the proper transfer of energy through my hands into the drum, and corrected each one. What an improvement in both relaxation and sound! Then after asking me what I would like to work on, he graciously walked me through a whole gamut of exercises which will undoubtedly save me many, many years of learning time. I would advise anyone who plays congas, or has in their heart to play congas… get in touch with Johnny Conga. His lifetime of experience has not only made him a great player, but the best of teachers! There is nothing quite like learning from the best!
