Emilio is a drummer and classical percussionist. He’s literally been beating on things his whole life.
As a classical percussionist, his performance experience includes the Green Brigade Marching Band, UNT Concert Band, 2 O’Clock Steel Band, and the Drum Corps International groups Genesis, and Phantom Regiment as a snare drummer. As a percussionist, he has studied with multiple prominent artists such as Mark Ford, Christopher Deane, Paul Rennick, and Colin McNutt.
Drum set wise, he started off as a self taught drummer who once he started playing, “just couldn’t’ stop”. He’s worked with Steve Barnes to solidify his methods for drum set and plays professionally throughout Texas with the band Vilamoura, and other various groups.
Emilio’s experience with teaching includes working with schools in Dallas and Northwest ISD teaching drum line and beginner percussionists as well as students who want to learn drum kit. He is always excited to work with new or advanced students and loves to witness the growth that comes from teaching.
