Private Drum and Percussion Lessons
Seattle – Tacoma
One-on-one instruction is the best method for special learning interests or needs, for an intense or focused course of study, or even to overcome personal issues such as shyness or discomfort in large groups. If you fall into one of these categories or simply would like to learn at your own pace and on your own schedule, then private instruction is the way to go. Lessons are offered on a wide variety of hand drums and percussion including congas, timbales, bata, drum kit, bongo, cajon, and smaller percussion instructions such as shekere and guiro.
Private lessons are generally 1/2 or 1 hour long and include foundation concepts and exercises to improve your rhythm, coordination, sense of time, speed, and mechanical independence. Speed in drumming is a function of good technique and training. No matter what your course of study, the first step in your development as a drummer is to establish proper technique. Independence is your ability to carry out multiple rhythmic tasks at the same time using hands, feet, and voice. Email me to get started today.
Arturo is a devoted musician and teacher and I have recommended his classes and books to other percussionist.
