Conga Drums Lessons
I teach all percussion instruments (such as conga, bongo, cajón, djembe, tambores batá (batá-drums), guiro, campana (cow bell), vibraphone (vibes), timpani and other forms of symphonic percussion. Styles include AfroCuban, bossanova, samba, African, jazz, rock, blues, classical, son/salsa, chachacha and other Latin rhythms.
I start each lesson by reviewing previous concepts and skills, ensuring that the basis is strong before I introduce new material. This reinforcement helps my students feel confident and motivated to tackle more challenging musical concepts.
Throughout the lessons, I employ a variety of teaching methods to cater to different learning styles. Interactive activities, hands-on exercises, and creative projects are integrated into my classes to keep students actively engaged. I provide constructive feedback, encourage students to take risks and express themselves musically. By tailoring the instruction to the individual needs and interests of each student, I create a personalised and enriching learning experience.
I celebrate the achievements with each student, acknowledge their progress and growth. Progress certificates can be part of the approach. This positive reinforcement not only boosts the student's confidence but also reinforces the joy that music brings into their life.
