Mariano織s drum method and teaching connects with the roots of his student’s concerns. Thanks to this, in his private lessons he manages to give a study plan that allows the student to satisfy and respond to these concerns, but at the same time he exposes the potential of each of the strengths of his students. Without a doubt, he is one of the best! ” 

Pancho Monta簽ez (Berklee Master Graduate)

Working with Mariano was truly a great experience for me as I was able to learn so much about music as a whole and how to be a well rounded musician. One of the best things about learning with him is the fact that he is able to break things down in detail and explain different ways of reaching goals. I started playing the drums at a young age and learned by ear. Eventually I learned to sight read which helped me a lot during our lessons. Mariano is able to help develop students on either side of the spectrum. Im personally grateful for not only the tips and technical teachings he provided but also the words of advice and encouragement during our lessons. He is inspirational for me and I know hes capable of bringing the absolute best out of any student willing to learn and grow.

Travis Collins (Berklee Master Graduate)

“I met Mariano Steimberg when I was 16 years old. I had already been dedicated to music for 8 years, but his study plan was key in the development of time and efficiency. Mariano sets you the language, technique and coordination guidelines necessary to develop your own style. 

Ten years later we met again during my master’s degree at Berklee College of Music (Valencia Campus) where I continued taking lessons with him, transcribing different artists and working on my sound and groove. Mariano, apart from being a great teacher, is an incredible musician. Seeing him play inspired me to now pursue drums on a professional level. “

Xerach Pe簽ate Santana (Berklee Master Graduate)

“My dream was to play the drums. At 65, I started private lessons with Mariano Steimberg, who inspired me to start saying it is never late.

It was the best decision I have made in my life. In the years that we have been together I have learned to play many different styles, to read music, and be able to follow drum charts.  Above all, each class inspires me more and more. I’ve even managed to get on to play some of the best jam sessions in Valencia! “
