Hey all, I thought I'd start with a post here to see if anyone can point me to a better place to list this.
I'm a musician/drummer and educator and I've just moved to Barranco from Boulder, Colorado. Because of weight limits, I don't have any of my drumming equipment with me except for a few pairs of sticks and a practice pad. But I would like to try to "break into" teaching drums here in southern Lima. Here's my quick and dirty sales pitch:
My name is Danny. I live in the Barranco district in Lima. I'm a drummer and composer. I've been playing for 18 years and teaching lessons in the states for the last 7. I have two bachelor's degrees from the University of Colorado; one in percussion performance (BM) and one in Music education (BME). I can teach beginning through advanced levels; drum set, snare drum, timpani, xylophone/mallets, sight reading and music theory. Learn to play rock, hip-hop, country, jazz, salsa, reggae, classical or pop."
Best case scenario would be for me to go to the house who has drums and do the lessons for something like S/. 50 an hour. Not sure where to advertise, but I figured Mira Flores is a good start. Any ideas? Anyone know any aspiring drummers who need help? My spanish is improving daily, but will be challenging if the student doesn't speak english. But I will teach anyone.
Thanks for reading! Hope everyone had a grand New Year's and you didn't get a bottle rocket in the eye.
