“It’s all about the why. If you figure out the way then you figure out purpose.”
Juan Mendoza is a classically trained musician who is one of the smoothest, knowledgeable and musical drummers around. Hailing from New Jersey, Juan has developed his own home studio where he films his lessons, teaches his students and records for artists. The results that he manages to achieve are second to none.
In addition to being a fantastic performer, Juan is also an incredible teacher. He has filmed courses at Drumeo where he got into, what I feel, is his specialty. Rudiment applications. I highly recommend checking them out.
I wanted to have Juan on to talk about how he interprets his students and how they can become better students but this also means how can teachers become better teachers because they work hand in hand.
