As an official member of the DW Drums Department Of Education, the D’Addario Education Collective, a Zildjian Educator, and a certified member of the National Association Of Rudimental Drummers (N.A.R.D.), Angel Bartolotta has been teaching students of all ages, from 2 years old to 80+, for over two decades. He has releases seven instructional books and one DVD (available HERE). He specializes in beginner lessons, but also works with intermediate and advanced players who are looking to learn something new. From basic coordination and technique to rudiments, beats, fills, solos, full songs and music reading/writing, Angel covers all of the bases and gives his students the opportunity to perform live on stage with other musicians and record in his private studio at The Rock Box Music School & Stage.

Angel’s students have gone on to form their own bands (performing locally, nationally, and internationally) as well as earning Scholarships and Superior ratings and awards by leading their school’s marching, orchestra, concert, symphonic, and jazz bands, competing in state and national levels. They have earned jobs performing overseas at Sea World in Abu Dhabi and Universal Studios in Japan. Some of his students have been accepted into prestigious music schools and colleges, and a few have studied under him and have used his mentorship to become teachers themselves.

While he is not certified as a Music Therapist, Angel does have years of experience working with students with Autism (verbal and nonverbal), Aspergers, Down Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, anxiety, depression, PTSD, blindness and deafness. While these “disabilities” may pose different challenges for each student, one thing they have in common is they didn’t let it hold them back or stop them from reaching their goals in music. Angel is extremely honored and humbled to help them along the way.

With over 20 years of world touring and major studio sessions under his belt, Angel Bartolotta offers much more than the average drum instructor.
