Harold is a drummer/music educator born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and currently reside in NYC. I obtained a BA in Music from University of Puerto Rico Rio Piedras campus and a MA in Music Education from City University of New York Lehman College. I've had the opportunity to study with excellent teachers and musicians such as Sammy Morales, Kenwood Dennard, David Claman & Victor Rendón. While living in New York City I spent time playing musicals such as In The Heights, Dreamgirls, Smokey Joe's Cafe, Bikeshop among others and had the opportunity to compose the music for Exit The Musical with actress/composer Venuz Delmar. Harold has also collaborated with NYC bands such as San Simón, whose EP Talk to Me is soon to be released, Badinba, and hip-hop band Boom Bits. Currently I am Music Director for the Mt. Pleasant Cottage School District. Aside of the educator side, I’m in the process of revision of my first drum book & performing in NYC with several groups. Some of my previous educator experience are Jazz Band & Marching Band Director for Champaign Unit 4 School District & Guest Director for the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana Latin Jazz Band. Harold proudly endorses Vic Firth & Sabian.
