Have only had one lesson so far, but can already tell Edgardo is an excellent instructor & awesome musician!Jun 5, 2013Verified
I love Edgardo's drumming classes. He not only teaches conga technique, he lectures on the rich history of various Latin instruments and patterns. Class with Edgardo is always interesting, inspiring and fun!Mar 26, 2013
Edgardo is an excellent instructor, he is very passionate about his classes, they are a lot of fun. He likes to emphasize and makes sure you have a good technique and that you learn what is being taught I have also learn a lot about other percussion instruments. I enjoy very much each class.Mar 25, 2013
After trying two other instructors, I found in Edgardo, a style of instruction that resonated. As a result, I'm in for the long term. He's committed to quality instruction. He is detailed, encouraging and fun. Each student's progress is evident each lesson, even in a group setting. And good time is had by everyone!Mar 20, 2013
Maestro Edgardo Cambon is a gifted teacher who skillfully instructs the student according to his or her ability. He is patient, personable and knowledgable. In two years studying with Edgardo, I have learned a multitude of rhythms on one, two and three drums. He is a superb conguero and musician!Mar 20, 2013
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I go to Cuba as often as I can (7 times as of now, two of them to play with my Band.) I go to NAMM, National Music Market Show in Anaheim, California, every year to meet with my peers and friends at the LP (Latin Percussion) booth as well as with many great drummers and share thoughts and "hang." I also sit daily and practice, even if just for an hour, to stay connected with the instrument, mainly congas.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?First I became a student, as I developed myself musically, it was a natural thing to do to start teaching. I do not advertise much, it's all through recommendations by clients and students, or people who see me playing and want to take lessons.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Performances. One on one private classes. Lecture demonstrations, etc.
