"Learning to play drums is one of the most exciting paths you can take as a musician. I can help you cultivate your interests and skills to take you anywhere you'd like on the drum set. Not only do I break down concepts and techniques that are easy to digest, but I make it fun and engaging for the student. Every second of practice and study you do makes you a better drummer. With enough practice you can do anything!"
Nathan started playing drums at age 10. With a musical family to support him, he quickly gained traction on his instrument. Before long he was playing shows with his brother, Mario, in their band CHON.
CHON's music became a sort of internet phenomenon as young musicians discovered their songs full of rich layers of complex musical concepts and instrumental virtuosity.
Since then, Nathan has gone on national tours with bands such as Animals as Leaders and other big names in the modern music scene. For those who aren't current with modern music, CHON literally learned the ropes by touring with some of the heaviest hitters amongst musician's musicians. This is a priveledge that was earned by hard work and honest talent.
Nathan has recorded three records with CHON. He is also one of the youngest endorsers of Tama Drums, Meinl Cymbals, and Vic Firth Drumsticks in the world, being signed at age 17.
Nathan may be young, but his musical abilities, real world musical experience, and accountability set him on a level that seasoned instructors aspire to reach. His great attitude and ability to relate to young musicians make him an excellent choice for students taht need inspiration and motivation. Nathan is walking proof that hard work pays off at any age!
