“Thoughtful original music delivered with rare conviction.” - Jazz Times
“Garcia is a drummer of invention, grace and considerable fire.” - Downbeat
“…an elastic, adventurous statement from the drummer Rob Garcia." - New York Times
"like all great frontmen he puts the music first, not his instrument. And like fellow drummer/leaders Bill Stewart and Jack DeJohnette, Garcia always serves the music, but with that extra inner sparkle and finesse coupled to crackerjack time sensibilities that are constantly delightful." -NYC Jazz Record

Willing to teach
Beginner to advanced
Rob has a Master of Music from SUNY Purchase and a BA from NYU. Scheduling for lessons is flexible. The lesson rates are $60/hr, $40/half hr. Lesson can be in person or online via Skype (or something comparable). I teach at my studio in the West Midwood/Ditmas Park section of Brooklyn (near Newkirk Plaza and Ave H). I will also travel to the students. I teach my students to play the music they like. I encourage self-expression and creativity as well as learning the necessary skills to read and play music with other people. My teaching studio is equipped with two drum sets, piano (I often play piano with the student on drums) and a stereo system. I'm well versed in many popular and not so popular styles of music/drumming (jazz, Latin, Brazilian, swing, dixieland, rock, pop, funk, hip-hop and reggae to name a few).
