Jose Garcia

My name is Jose Garcia and I’m a current drummer living in southern California. After playing for over a decade, I can’t picture myself doing anything else. I graduated from the prestigious Los Angeles College of Music with a degree in music. I currently give clinics and gig all over southern California. My love for music has spread too all genres of music and I express it through my teaching and playing. Helping students develop technical skills and an ability to be artistically expressive on their chosen instrument is my goal.
