Leonardo Alvarez is a music teacher and educator, specializing in drums and percussion. He was born in the city of General Roca, province of Rio Negro, Argentina, on June 30 th 1978. He established himself in the city of Buenos Aires since 1997 and was a student of Daniel 'Pipi' Piazzolla. As a musician, he is renowned for his versatility and performance in different musical styles. He has participated in 40 record productions of different styles and was a part of the orchestra in many musical comedies that were shown in Buenos Aires such as 'Eva, The Argentine musical', with Nacha Guevara and Alberto Favero, and Astor Piazzolla's 'Maria de Buenos Aires'. Some of these recordings were nominated for several awards and the nominations included the 'best new artist' category in the local musical scene. I have a wide variety of drum kits and snares (vintage and modern) that I customize per song. I like to create a drum sound that suits the song I'm working on. I look forward to working with you.
