Testimonials from a few of Angels students:


“Angel is a great drum teacher. He is able to be patient enough to teach my 8 year old and then switch gears to teaching me all while getting the lesson to sink in for both of us. There is not a better teacher around with as much experience and enthusiasm! For everyone who wants to learn drums, Angel is the one!” – Matthew Tomer (30 years old)


“Angel is one of the most exciting and energetic drummers that I have seen on stage. As a student, his perfection for his craft is instilled in you and explained in a way that anyone can understand. Anybody that desires to play the drums should take lessons from Angel as he is second to none.” – Stevon Gardner (33 years old)


“Man! If you want to learn how to play the skins, baby, let me tell you something… Angel is superb. Superb!” – Gordon Noble (82 years old)


“What is a “teacher”? A teacher is patient, caring, understanding and energetic. Angel possesses all of these traits and I consider him a good friend.” – Walter Whisenant (51 years old)


“I have learned so much from Angel and he’s pretty awesome when he plays the drums. Here are some of the reasons why I think he is a great teacher. One, if you need help on something he would be happy to show you again. Two, if it gets difficult he will slow down the tempo and give you a beat on his drums to assist you. Three, he loves to have fun and interact with you and he knows how to make things more easy if it’s hard for you. But most of all he just rocks!” – Austin Watkins (12 years old)


“A+++ teacher.” – Randy Brendel (30 years old)


“Angel is a great teacher because he’s teaching me all these music notes that I never knew about and I like lessons because I get to learn about all kinds of different musical instruments!” – Samantha Ferguson (9 years old)


“Lessons with Angel are fun and I always leave knowing how to do something new. The lessons are upbeat and exciting!” – Brandi Stiffler (15 years old)


“As a student of Angel’s whether you’ve played drums before or haven’t touched a drum kit in your life, he explains step by step each note, beat, and rhythm until he makes sure you understand it before moving on to the next exercises. After catching a Team Cybergeist show for the first time, I realized going to Angel for lessons was the right choice by the amazing power and dedication he has behind that drum kit. Amazing drummer.” – James Hansen (29 years old)


“Angel is an awesome teacher and he is very patient. He makes learning fun!” – Will Hawley (13 years old)
