Drums Lessons

From your very first lesson, I will work with you to determine what specific goals you have so we can custom fit the methods, materials and keys to fulfilling them together. I have the patience and the enthusiasm to get you motivated if you bring the commitment.
My studio is in a safe, family-friendly & smoke-free environment and sessions will be comfortable, yet challenging.

Knowing from experience how "boring" it can be to learn solely from books, I combine technical work with fun time playing duets together, improvising, and exploring a wide variety of styles and genres of music.
Students will learn all the basics of drumming, and also spend time developing strong ensemble skills and strong background knowledge of style and repertoire.
I make a special effort to invest in each student’s particular needs, utilizing a variety of tools such as supplemental workbooks, ear training, sight reading, note spelling, etc. as necessary.Each lesson will conclude with an assignments to work on throughout the week.Music theory sheets and technique exercises will also be included in the assignments.

I do strive for excellence and believe every student should work to be the best they can possibly be, while having fun doing so!

World Music
5 to 90


Born on January 1, 1995, in Manhattan, New York and raised in in Miami Florida, Cain spent his childhood in studios and venues. He watched as his parents played music entertaining thousands of people, “It was always exciting and everyone enjoyed themselves.” Ever since Cain can remember, he has always loved playing the drums. There are many stories of when his parents would have to physically hide the drums just to get him to stop playing them.
As the years went by, Cain’s love for the drums and music intensified. Because his parents are both musicians, he was constantly being exposed to a wide variety of music and musicians. When his father used to take him to his gigs or rehearsals, he would sit completely silent and become completely mesmerized by music alone. Watching and listening to musicians was his favorite thing to do just as video games or football was to other kids.

As a result Cain gained a valuable education from these experiences not to mention the vast world travel ... places like China, Australia, Europe and South America just to name a few. Cain began to take a special interest in world music styles such as Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, and Haitian as well as others more contemporary styles like Jazz and Rock. His many musical influences include Steve Gadd, Vinnie Colaiuta, David Weckl, Dafnis Prieto, John Robinson as well as bands ranging from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tower of Power, and Batacumbele.

But perhaps the most influential people in his music career would have to be his parents, Jimmy Daniel and Marybeth DeSarle. They have provided him with the means as well as the support he needed to pursue his dream. “My Dad has taught me everything that I know and continues to help me along my musical career as well as my life, and my Mother gave me a place to develop as a musician and learn many of the most crucial musical lessons at a young age.”

At 21, Cain has already had the privilege of sharing the stage with world renowned artists such as Eddy Francois, Boukan Ginen, Iko-Iko, Lita Ford, Joey Gilmore, Albert Castiglia and many others.

In 2014 Cain earned an impressive Full Tuition Scholarship to Berklee and had the opportunity studying with legendary musicians such as Terry Lynn Carrington, Dave DiCenso, Mark Walker, Eguie Castrillo, and John Ramsay to name a few.

Today, Cain is following in his Fathers foot steps and lives in Los Angeles pursuing a career in music. Only the future holds what this young man can accomplish!
