I experienced studying classical piano for 5 years, classical percussions for 5 years and I'm currently studying Jazz Drums in Amsterdam.
This class is for those that want to learn playing the drums in different genres.
I always try to care about the student's taste, in order to keep it interesting and worth it.

About Me

I am a 22 years old italian student. I am from Rome and I come from a 5 people family.
My life experience made me understand how important is to reach people on a personal level expecially when it's about teaching.
In order to share knowledge, it's important to have a common ground with people and understand their personalitis. This is the basis of my teaching method.
I have been playing classical music, rock, indie and jazz; I am open to follow the students taste and to give as much as I can give all the times.

Education

I started my musical experience studying classical piano from a private teacher for 5 years. Then I started studying classical percussions and I took Diploma at "A.Manzoni Liceo Musicale". In this period of my life I experienced playing a lot of rock, indie, hard rock, grunge music.
I currently live in Amsterdam where I have been now for three years. Here I had the chance to play with beautiful musicians from the Dutch Jazz scene such as: Jasper Bloom, Joris Roelofs, Harmen Fraanje, Ben van Gelder, Reinier Baas etc...

Experience / Qualifications

During the classical studies he had the chance to participate to different concourses like “Concorso Musicale Nazionale G.Visconti” first price, in Rome, “Schools Internationals Talents” 2 place, in Turin, “Giovani Musici” in 2015, and I won prices as a soloist and as a member of the “Latina Percussion Ensemble” directed by M°Salvatore Campo.

Reviews (2)

He is a great teacher. Highly recommended.
The lesson went well. Giacomo is willing to explain everything and answer questions if there are any. Of course, there's still the work that you must do yourself, but the option to focus on the genre of music that you find appealing, is helpful for keeping the motivation to improve.

Drums & Rhythm Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
My approach to teaching drums is focused on developing a strong understanding of rhythm in general and applying it on the drum set. I will customise my teaching approach to your needs, depending on the level of your playing and your musical desires. I'll give my best in each lesson to guide you step-by-step into becoming a better musician/drummer. You can learn about: - Polyrhythms - Groove - Technique - Macro & micro timing - Drum sounds for different genres/applications - Controlling dynamics between different limbs - Rhythm singing (konnakol) - Reading complex musical notations - Composing mathematically harmonious/inharmonious rhythms And much more... Starting from beginner, up to experienced drummers. I'm also giving rhythm lessons to non-drummers, just to anyone interested in getting to know more about the rhythmical concepts of South India - the most advanced rhythmic system on planet Earth!

Drum lessons, learn how to play the drums, music theory etc.
I can offer you private drum lessons, that are tailored completely by your own interests, or I can advice you what would be efficient for you to improve, depending on where you stand with your experience and skills. We can together discuss about setting a goal, and start working your way towards it. You don't have to have previous experience in playing the drums. You can be an absolute beginner, intermediate, or more advanced student. I also teach all ages. Some things that we can go through in lessons: -Overall knowledge over the history of the drums -Tuning & setting up the drums -Posture & technique -Groove & timing. Playing with a metronome -Sound & dynamics -Different styles (jazz, soul, funk, hiphop, latin, pop/rock etc.) -Rudimental playing (classical etudes to improve your technique) -Reading, writing & transcribing drum notes/fills/solos etc. -Improvisation -Polyrhythms Everything is possible! :) You just need to show up, grab a pair of sticks with you, and we can see what interests you and we may go further.
