Personal Statement
I am an Online Conga drum instructor. I have over 50 years of performance (Santana-Gloria Estefan-Eddie Palmieri-Sergio Mendes and many others) I have been teaching around the world and have taught thousands how to play the Conga drum, it's history and culture. I have the only full course of it's kind, as I created it, and have taught it at no less than 5 colleges or universities, and music schools. I can save you years of learning time with my methodology, both the Cuban way of playing and mine developed over the years. All you need are the 'adult' congas, desire, and determination to learn.
