About Chadwick Gonzales
Chadwick has been playing drum set for 24 years and started performing live at age 12. His studies with auxiliary percussion, latin and world music, and mallet percussion began at age 23. Chadwick's performance experience has taken him on tour to various well-known music festivals such SXSW, CMJ, Maverick, etc.
Chadwick has been teaching drums and percussion since December of 2011. He teaches all styles, with RockSchool type curriculum and some classical training. Chadwick tailors his lesson curricula to the varying needs of his students.
Chadwick teaching philosophy is that... "Music is pure sound. It is imagination. It is the free will to feel at one with music, to let it open up doors in our imagination. When music ceases to be fun, it becaomes stagnant. Learning should be fun and also should be known that mistakes are OK. We learn from our mistakes, without them, the teacher and the student can never truly learn."
