  • Prasad Iyer

    Santiago is very good with drumming, I had a lesson with him and he explained the basics and helped me play a measure in my first lesson itself I would definitely recommend him

  • Joe Antillano

    I’ve been having private piano lessons with him for over a month now and I can’t express how thankful I am. The classes are entertaining and instructive. I have improved my playing and reading, as he teaches me that as well. I was afraid to start piano lessons at my age of 25 but he has taken that fear away and I am excited to learn more. I will start improvising soon.

    I grew from being an amateur have-fun drummer to actually being able to play in a band and read music. I am excited to learn more!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first thing I do with a new student is a short interview. This will help me understand who they are, where they are musically and where they want to get. After that, I design a plan to help them achieve their goals in a healthy manner, avoiding frustrations and bad habits.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a Berklee College Of Music graduate with over 5 years of experience teaching private lessons. I have taught drums and piano before, both in English and Spanish.

How did you get started teaching?

I first started teaching when my fellow classmates required help with courses in which I was doing very good. Then it became a habit, and after some time I decided I might as well make money from it!

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from all ages and all social backgrounds. I have taught students internationally and from all levels. I don't mind how little you think you know, there is music in you and together we will bring it out!
