My method really changes according to the needs of the student. It's very important for me to know a student and what he/she wants to achieve in order to create a specific program that suits him/her.
All levels are welcome: from the beginner to the more advanced, I am open to give lessons to everyone who wants to explore the drums and the beauty of music.
I am ready to work on all aspects of the drums: techniques, rudiments, grooves, fills, timing, musicianship.
As a drummer I have a lot of experience in many different music genres, both teaching and playing: from jazz to funk, from rock to pop, and also folk music in case you want to have a more percussive approach.
Last but not least, my idea as a teacher is to create a friendly enviroment: having fun is the most important thing in order to learn in a natural and effective way.
I am an Italian drummer based in Brussels. I am 27, I started to play drums at 6 and to teach professionally at 19. I have a Bachelor and a Master Degree in Jazz Drums; I did my Bachelor in Italy and my Master at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel. In Brussels I have been working as a professional musician and as a music teacher since 2 years. I can teach in English, Italian and French (just a bit).
I am available to give lessons in my place (a real drumkit with silent drumheads and cymbals, because I am living in an apartment), at your house or in a rehearsal room equipped with drums (with normal, louder sounding drumheads and cymbals) and a PA system. For the last two options, I will charge 5 euros more for travel costs or rent of the rehearsal room.
I don't have a car, so I will travel by public transport.
I can reach all the areas of Brussels, as long as they can be reached by public transport :)
