"TEACHING: Masters in Jazz Performance, established New York musician, I am a Brazilian Jazz musician based in NYC that has more than a decade of experience in teaching and playing drums/piano in the most diverse styles, from Brazilian music to contemporary jazz. Each student is unique so course is personalized for the student needs. I teach mainly pop, rock, blues, jazz, classical, funk, RnB at an affordable cost, daily internet assistance and all ages and levels accepted. ---->>> Lesson My approach to teaching comes from what I call "Self-consciousness of progress". When the student himself realizes how better he is after a few lessons. To make that happen I support my lessons with a ton of great methods and materials acquired on more than a decade teaching around the world. Lessons are fun and relaxed. Each student has a different goal. Either if you just want to come and learn a few tunes or get really deep into studying the instrument I am here to help and adapt to your needs. The first class is directed to discuss what are your goals and make a good learning plan to accomplish them as fast as possible. Lessons are directed to archive the following basic goals: 1) - Just play your favorite songs /or 2) - Learn the instrument from the beginning /or 3) - (people with more experience) - Improve in the instrument targeting a more professional path.

"***IMPORTANT NOTE, PLEASE READ: I am located in the metropolitan Detroit area. But, I am available for online (remote) lessons; with a very good online set up (tripods, cameras, etc). I am also available at my teaching space, and have two great drum sets set up side by side; one for the student, and one for the instructor. I am also willing to commute to the student, within a certain radius, with a nominal fee (for gas and commute time). Thank you for your time and interest. I have 25 years of experience as a working musician, combining: Private drum instruction, freelance studio work, and collaboration with musicians and bandmates in both a live and studio setting. I have been a member of solid Metropolitan Detroit bands, most notably including: Friends of the Family, Night Train, and The Mobius Loop. I have been blessed with many great opportunities, most notably supporting national acts, such as: The Headhunters, Melvin Seals, Mofro and Strange Folk. And, I have recorded at excellent Metropolitan Detroit studios, including: Studio N Armada, Riff Lab Studios, Woodshed Studios and The Disc. More recently, I have participated in recording projects with a group called The Nova Junction, and with talented producers Dan Lesnick and Josh Ackerman. Along with teaching drum lessons, I am also presently collaborating on original material, with a newly formed rock band, called Electric Temple. I am looking to add dedicated students to my current roster. I am very experienced with teaching students in a wide age range; as I have students that are 5 years of age, and students that are 60 plus years of age. I took private instruction, studying under two EXCELLENT drummers from the Detroit Metro area: Darryl Pierce and Donny Gruendler. Mr. Pierce (among many other accomplishments) currently tours internationally and nationally with a well known artist by the name of Bettye LaVette. This group has made frequent television appearances, including: David Letterman and Austin City Limits. Mr. Gruendler, is currently the Vice President of Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, and he has been featured in several Modern Drummer publications. I have learned a great deal through private instruction, and therefore teach from experience. I utilize and apply many of the techniques that I personally found useful; through my own personal instruction. I also have two full drum kits, set up in my teaching/rehearsal space; which has proven to be an exceptional teaching tool. References from teachers, students, producers, and bandmates can be provided on request."

"Drum Lessons with Rob Garcia. I teach at my studio in the West Midwood/Ditmas Park section of Brooklyn (near Newkirk Plaza and Ave H). I will also travel to the students. I teach my students to play the music they like. I encourage self-expression and creativity as well as learning the necessary skills to read and play music with other people. My teaching studio is equipped with two drum sets, piano (I often play piano with the student on drums) and a stereo system. I'm well versed in many popular and not so popular styles of music/drumming (rock, pop, jazz, funk, hip-hop, reggae, Latin, Brazilian, swing, dixieland, drum and bass, to name a few). Bio: Rob has been teaching drum students (from age five through adult) for over 20 years, and has been a professional performing musician for 25 years. He has taught drums as well as jazz and percussion ensemble at the New York Hot Jazz Camp, Berkeley-Carroll School, P.S. 184, P.S. 10, and The British International School of New York. He has done clinics in the U.S. and Europe and has performed in over a hundred school assemblies in the tristate area with organizations such as Arts Horizons and the Brooklyn Arts Council. "A prime mover in the current Brooklyn jazz scene" (Time Out-New York) and "one of New York's great jazz drummers and composers (Capital, New York), Rob Garcia continues to be a strong presence in the New York and international jazz scene as a sideman and bandleader. He has collaborated with such stellar artists as Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman, Wynton Marsalis, Catherine Russell, Vince Giordano, Woody Allen and Joseph Jarman and has played on over 70 albums including grammy winners. Rob's album, "Perennial" (BJUR 012) was in the "10 Best Jazz Albums of 2009" in the New York Observer. His group, the Rob Garcia 4, has performed at venues such as The Ottawa Jazz Festival, Iridium, Smalls, the Kingston Jazz Festival and the Toronto Jazz Festival. Rob has also received grants from Meet The Composer, DCA and NYSCA to support his performances. Rob has also been a major force in artist-run jazz organizations. He is the founder and executive director of Connection Works, a member of the Brooklyn Jazz Underground and a founding member of the Douglass Street Music Collective. In addition to many creative projects, Rob has played on many recordings for TV commercials, TV shows, and major motion pictures. He has a master's of music from Suny Purchase (2006)."
