Playing has always has to be about: sharing emotions, express feelings, have fun, being curious, pushing musicians boundaries. Now the question is: how is possible to match those aspects with a process like private music lessons, which involves concentration, discipline, strength of will and efforts?

About My Lessons:

Playing music is a process that needs to go through different parts in order to be achieved. The first way to experience music is , of course, through listening . That’s how we decide to start to learn an instrument, how we develop our musical preferences. Everything that we want to work on, a rudiment, a song, a groove, a drum fill or a drum solo must pass to our ears and must be put in a contest. Ears are ours input device that allows us to store all the information that we need to become a better drummer, a better musician and a better PERSON.

During my lessons, I give to my student a playlist of new tracks every week. That’s for helping them to have a wide and complete music library where he can develop a good knowledge of all the music styles and genres around: Pop, Funk, Rock, Hip Hop, Jazz, Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, Metal, Punk, Drum’ n Bass, Electronic, Indie, Fusion, Classic, Lyric. A good musician and a good music listener must have no boundaries and enjoy and understand every kind of music

Having a big and updated music library is a must have for any musicians. What we need to do now is studying and analyzing the music and work on the kit. Once again, as for the listening part, a good musician must know how to play everything but, as every one is different and has a different approach, personality and music preference, is essential to work in that direction to achieve a good way to earn a personal and professional sound and skills.

All the data that we get from our ears, needs now to be processed. This part is important to don't leave our limbs alone to deal with the job but having instead the knowledge (especially in the reading and rudiments exercises ) and the consciousness to fit that particular element in a music contest. In this way even the most mechanical exercise can find a musicality and his meaning for the student's ear.

Once that ears and mind are settled, we can start to work on the kit. Especially for the beginners that could mean dealing with technique and reading exercise at first that may leave the music and the musical part out for a bit, that's why I often allow some exceptions with play along tracks that can help the young student to keep the interest in the instrument while he's learning what he needs to play the same tunes with the proper skills and vocabulary.
