BA of Arts
I love all music! From classical to jazz to hip-hop to Funk etc.
I'm Chris Beltran; and I want to teach you how to play the drums.
I've been studying percussion for 25 years and began touring when I was 16.
While I consider myself a rock drummer, I have knowledge and experience in jazz, mallet percussion, drum corp, Scottish snare, bucket drumming, orchestra pit, piano, didgeridoo, and body percussion.
I have a Bachelor of Arts from Cal State LA and I spent the last two years performing shows with Recycled Percussion; under the guidance of Justin Spencer - the world's fastest drummer. Prior to this, I've been in jazz band, marching band, wind ensemble, punk bands, cover bands, and a percussionist in Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood.
My teaching philosophy is simple: We figure out a game plan for you - and follow it, we make learning fun, you practice, I don't flake, and soon I'm asking you for your autograph.
