« Perfect! He always encourages me to try more difficult exercises and pushes me to challenge myself, which I love. He laughs with me when I get frustrated to make me more comfortable, and is always patient in showing me more efficient ways of improving my playing. He never shies away from the small details and looks to the long-term goals when considering how to move forward. He always pushes to go over the basics so that you have a stronger foundation in the future. I love everything about how he teaches. »

I've known Carlos for years: We have been depping for each other and practising drums together since we were teenagers. Whenever I need a professional drummer for either gigs or lessons I drop his name without hesitation, and he always comes through flawlessly. Every time.

He is trustworthy, reliable, and has a ton of experience in the drumming trenches.

Daniel

Really nice and friendly tutor to guide you through your music development, perfect for beginners because you will have a teacher which will give you the right directions and advises and for professional drummer is great, myself I'm already professional and every time I have a lesson with him he find the way to blow my mind and give me challenges to keep up myself motivated and studying every day. Really recommendable

I personally know Carlos since few years ago. He is a professional drummer, very versatile and committed.

He is patient and good-mannered and can definitely teach well to both young and mature students.

He was really accommodating to my schedule and helped me to improve a lot! He is very patient and makes the lesson fun and relaxing! I have recommended him in several occasions and have received very good feedback.
