My journey has been fun and exciting, I was born in Peru, studied in Spain, played with bands around Europe and then moved to USA where I graduated from Berklee College of Music (Summa Cum Laude) as an scholarship student. Now in NYC, I've been working as a drummer and teacher for the past 5 years. Still, my teaching experience comes from way back (when I was still in Peru, more than 10 years ago), getting my first private students and subbing for my teachers at my music school. Teaching drums has always been an integral part of my musical life and all of that knowledge throughout those years is what I offer. I feel patience, flexibility and ... View Profile

My teaching approach: My teaching approach really depends on the student. I don't know what they need until we meet. But some things are across the board. I feel that technical skills are necessary tools for getting you where you want to go. Scales, chord shapes and arpeggios are very important to being able to get around on a guitar. I also like to teach students to apply Indian vocal rhythms (tala) to guitar. My guitar lessons take place in: either your home or my studio Guitar Techniques: Rhythm guitar, Fingerpicking, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Reading Music, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Recording and Production, ...

Music, of any and all forms, has been a major passion of mine ever since I was at least 5, if not younger. Either way, I grew up listening to all types, genres, etc. of music and to this very day I still listen to everything. The way I see it, if you want to be good at what you do musically, you should be exposed to all forms of music. From Jazz to Hip Hop, or acoustic singer-songwriter to whatever may be popular at this very second. For me, I've taken bits and pieces of everything I listen to and try my best to create something that not only speaks to me but hopefully to those listening to what I have to say while performing. I've played ope ... View Profile
