“Zoro is one of my biggest musical influences and drumming heroes. I met him at one of his concerts when I was a kid. He took the time to encourage me and also took me backstage. It was a life-changing experience and I have never forgotten his kindness toward me”

What students like you have to say

“My lesson studio hosted Zoro for a master class. What an incredible impact this event has made in the lives of my drum students! Talk about my students being pumped up for their next lessons! Zoro tailored this class to the skill level of my students, ranging from beginner to those who have been playing for a few years. He established an immediate rapport with the participants and held their attention captive throughout the entire class. Zoro interjected his fun personality and humor into the session, making the two-hour plus class seem to fly by. I say “two-hour plus” because AFTER his teaching Zoro wowed the students by playing some songs, shared his philosophy about using the talents one has been given, helped award door prizes, and stayed to sign autographs until the last student left! This was an incredible event, and we would be honored to host him again next year! My students are still talking about the master class, and are already asking about the possibility of his return!”

“It’s good to know that your instructor actually cares to call and see how your doing. I am actually still drumming and wouldn’t have it any other way. I couldn’t thank you enough for helping me out with my tendinitis problem. Since you have helped me with my technique. I haven’t had any problems with it. Thanks for everything Z. You are a great instructor and I would probably be hurting right now if it wasn’t for your help.”
– Albert

“I ‘ve been taking lessons from Zoro periodically for several years, and from each lesson I’ve come away with a better understanding of particular feels, and new ideas for groove variations which work their way into my playing (with a little practice). In addition to the standard lessons, we’ve also had a few sessions in which we simply discuss the music industry and various approaches to making a career in music. Fortunately, with all the success and notoriety Zoro has garnered, he’s never displayed the least bit of ego or attitude. He’s very easy-going, approachable and spiritual, and I have no doubt that has contributed to his successes. Thanks, Z!”
