He then joined the "industrial movement show at Astroworld a drum and dance show. As the show was ending the Houston Rockets came calling for a 4 man drum group to perform at all the home games! Shortly after the rockets season ended, Universal recording artist "The Hunger" called, Giovanni then joined the band and did tours with many national acts. Also in his spare time he likes to study music from all over the world including,Latin,west African,Brazilian, and Indian.
My 14yr old takes guitar lessons with miguel and my 8yr old takes drum lessons from Giovanni . Both of these instructors are phenomenal!!!! My 14yr old absolutly loves coming to class with Miguel, she gets excited to play thanks to him. Giovanni is a master at his craft and genuinely loves teaching it to his students. This is hands down the best investment i have ever made!!!!

My son has been taking drums lessons from Giovanni Capelo for six months now and he has really grown as a musician. Gio teaches him theory, sight reading, and stresses a love for playing the drums. He is a great encourager and is a fantastic teacher for children. So glad we chose Clear Lake Music Lessons to start my son's love and appreciation for music. Rock On! \m/
