* Drums (drum set, all percussion)
* Music production/"beat-making" (Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Reason, Pro Tools, Garage Band)
* Learn how to record your own music, play live or jam with friends. I also facilitate bands in writing songs and performing live.
Richard Marquez is a master drummer/percussionist. Raised in Venice Beach Richard picked up his first drum at the age of two. He went on to study extensively with respected masters of both the Afro-Cuban tradition and American classical technique. Working professionally as a drummer and percussionist since the age of 15, Richard's greatest honor is his 17 years with the late Cuban legend Israel "Cachao" Lopez, creator of the mambo, with whom Richard recorded multiple albums (including three Grammy-winning) and film scores. He currently performs live with Cachao's band, the Cineson All-Stars. Richard has been teaching both amateurs and professionals for 20 years.
