I am very happy that I decided to hire Tato to record drums and other percussion instruments for my album Half Lives. He was very reliable, punctual and full of ideas, and really raised the quality of the songs to a new level. I would not hesitate to hire him again since he is a true professional and also a very good person.
Fantastic percussion teacher who adapts to all levels of students, whether or not they have musical knowledge, with a lot of patience, good humor and professionalism.
We have been playing batucada rhythms with him for about 11 years and every year we repeat because he gives us a lot of energy and joy! A crack 👌
Tato teaches the fundamentals of percussion very well. We had a great time in his classes. They are a weekly energy recharge. Thanks Tato!!!
Tato is an inspiring, understanding and committed teacher. His musical knowledge is extensive and diverse. He is very capable, even when there are different levels in a group class, of offering each student something that suits their level. The classes are varied, there is plenty of room for interaction and you will learn to develop and use your own creativity and musicality. This gives you the opportunity to develop your own style. Drum classes include working on technical skills, rhythm, feeling, and playing the drums along with your favorite music. Percussion classes teach you existing rhythms and how to improvise in a solo, as well as creating rhythms together using different percussion instruments.
Music for tap dancers offers a good combination of theory and practice. You will obtain tools that you can immediately apply in your dance.
Energetic and fun classes, I highly recommend it!
Tato's methodology adapts perfectly to all levels and the classes are very attractive and well structured.
I really enjoy our class after work on Tuesdays; It's the perfect start to the week.
Tato is a crack! In addition to being an incredible percussionist, he is a great teacher. All of his students are very lucky to have him.
Good teacher and percussionist, attentive and with great involvement and love in what he does, always grateful to have him as a guide in the world of music. Pure magic!! ✨
Magnificent drummer and percussionist, tremendous professional and great person. Tato is a metronome, a crack, a clock that makes everything run perfectly.
The amount of musical concepts that you acquire in his classes, ideas that you develop with his help and theories that you apply is simply brutal. In terms of teaching and information transfer, it is the best I have received in years.
Gustavo is a passionate and inspiring music teacher. I recommend it!
"Tato" is an excellent musician. As a drummer and percussionist, a reference professional and as a teacher, a very good teacher!!
In percussion classes you learn ethnic rhythms, percussion techniques and participate in ensembles that allow you to evolve very quickly so you can enjoy learning.
For all of us who want to learn percussion as amateurs, that a musician like "Tato" dedicates his time to teaching is lucky!!
Great professional. Gustavo is a safe bet for your projects, whatever their style, he has musicality and the necessary knowledge to make your band work well. I couldn't recommend it more!
The weekend starts early with Tato class on Friday mornings, always one of the highlights of my week.
Tato is not only a talented musician, but also an excellent teacher. I have attended numerous percussion classes and your method is by far the best I have experienced.
His classes are always fun and varied, he has many great techniques to help you learn and remember new skills. As you progress, he continues to push you to improve and challenge yourself, but without allowing things to become too difficult or stressful.
Highly recommended for anyone interested in learning percussion.
I had Tato for the drum recording of several songs and it was a pleasure to work with him. He brought many new elements to the songs and with his touch he gave the percussions the vibe they needed!
Gustavo is a great professional, he always adds and makes the band's work easy, he provides resources to continue loving this profession. From music and friendship it is a pleasure to share your great talent and good work. Thanks Tato!
In the tato classes it adapts to each person's level and gives you confidence and elements so that you can progressively improve your technique and creativity when playing.
Professional, close and cheerful; It is a pleasure to learn percussion and play with him and the other classmates a few hours a week.
Keep going like this!
Great professional and companion, going with him is going calmly to any event, I love the way he plays and the finesse when it comes to the dynamics in the different songs…
They have been fantastic years with Tato, now for unexpected reasons I cannot attend classes, as a teacher a ten, but as a person much more, very cool classes where you learn a lot, recommended
I miss you, carnal, and my friends too, we will see each other again, for sure.
Great person, great co-worker, great musician and fantastic friend. Gustavo "Tato" is a wonderful being with whom we always want to share moments, let's hope that we have many of those moments ahead of us.
Very good and fun percussion classes. Gustavo knows how to guide you, adapting at all times to the rhythm and level of each one. Highly recommended!
