Clinics & Workshops

Available for Residencies, Master Classes, Clinics and Workshops

Dafnis Prieto is a gifted educator who has conducted numerous master classes, clinics, and workshops. Dafnis was a faculty member of Jazz studies at NYU from 2005 to 2014, and in 2015 became a faculty member of Frost School of Music at UM (University of Miami).

He has created a very personal method to teach to his students. In his drum Clinics and Master Classes, Dafnis teaches how to use traditional Cuban rhythms in an innovative way, from a new perspective of sounds, including not only the extraordinary polyrhythmic possibilities but through the use of melodic themes within the drums, building very particular rhythmic lines using the improvisation as a very important factor.
