school percussion lessons

Percussion spots in area schools are highly competitive. Give your student an advantage during tryouts by starting him or her early. We’ll work on hand technique, coordination exercises, music reading, and basic piano skills, which many band programs require.

I am proud to say I have a 90% acceptance rate for middle school percussion programs. Additionally, many of my students have successfully auditioned for All-Region, & All-State Band and have received top ratings at UIL Solo and Ensemble competitions.



Mr. Rob Tovar has been our son Rahul’s drum tutor for the past year. We were looking for a tutor for our son because he expressed interest in learning to play the drums and that is how we found Mr. Tovar. On the day we met Mr. Tovar, he was very easy to talk to and put our son at ease about the learning process. He explained the nature of learning a musical instrument and pointed out the necessary focus that would be required on our son’s part. He even asked Rahul to read and sign a statement to the effect that he would spend the necessary time at home to learn and practice playing. This method instilled a level of seriousness in our son about playing that was previously missing.

Mr. Tovar is indeed a very gifted musician. He has been able to teach and motivate our son in his journey towards becoming a good drum player. Recently our son had an opportunity to play at a talent show in his school. Mr. Tovar taught him to play a “showcase” piece and trained him to become adept at it over following session. We were amazed and proud of how well our son performed at the show.

We highly recommend Mr. Tovar to anyone who is seeking tutoring in drums and would be glad to speak directly on behalf of Mr. Tovar if needed.
