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 (3)

Very practical and useful drum classes. Giacomo takes time to explain and helps you understand the lessons.
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.

Aurel
Drum lessons with qualified and experienced teacher - all styles, all levels
Hello! My name is Aurel and I am a French Amsterdam-based drummer. Although currently specialized in Jazz music, I have studied various esthetics, and Pop and Rock music, in particular, are part of my background (I played in several pop-rock bands). Therefore I am able to teach a broad panel of music styles. I also have many drum methods and charts at my disposal, and have experience in teaching children from the age of 6, as well as teenagers and adults. Lessons and teaching method: I always adapt to the student's tastes and learning profiles. This is why, during the first lesson, and on a regular basis afterwards, I always take time to discuss with my students (or their parents if they are very young) to figure out together the path they want or need to follow. I will use charts and methods for those who need visual support to assimilate the skills or teach by ear and by demonstrating to the ones who feel more comfortable this way. I also play electric guitar and can jam with my students, which is a great tool for developing band playing skills or simply to have a good time. For those eager to make significant progress, I offer consistent and serious monitoring, with practice recommendations. I can for instance prepare a student for an audition or an entrance exam in a conservatory. If you are willing to improve your understanding of rhythm in general, you can also benefit from my knowledge of Indian Karnatic rhythm concepts, one of the most complete traditional approaches to rhythm. Students who simply want to learn at their pace, to have fun and unwind, are definitely welcome too! About me: In addition to my jazz drums bachelor and master degrees from the conservatory of Amsterdam (CvA), which included a thorough pedagogical training and a specialization in Indian Karnatic techniques, I benefit from 4 years of experience as an employed drum teacher in two French associative music schools (Ecole de musique de Nangis and Conservatoire des Deux Rives, Moret-sur-Loing). I am also an active musician, both on the Dutch and the French scene. My trio mainly tours in France and has played at venues such as the Sunside (Paris), or participated in competitions like the Keep An Eye International Jazz Award. I am also the co-leader of the sextet Chai Masters, finalist of several European competitions (Leiden Jazz Award, Golden Jazz Trophy in Lille, France, 7 Virtual Jazz Contest). Recently, the band was part of Keep An Eye The Records's finalists (March 2022). Looking forward to meeting you and passing on my know-how to you!

Drum classes from beginner to high level, learn to play in a band or be a professional drummer
Drumming has a positive effect on anxiety, grief, fatigue, depression and behavioral issues. While drumming children strengthen their ability to focus and work on impulse control and decision making skills. Playing the drums can help people express themselves and get in touch with their emotional state. You will learn how to play drums for different kind of music in a band, or you can learn how to be a professional drummer.

Drum Lessons: A contemporary approach to the drumset
Hey there! I've been studying drums for the past 12 years at various schools across the country as well as playing with local and touring acts. I've taken all of my experiences, including graduating from Belmont University's School of Music, and formed a method for teaching that is guaranteed to improve anyone's ability on the drums. I tailor my curriculum to my students' needs and make it a priority to teach my students how to teach themselves so that they can play in any situation they're faced with or setting they're in. Let's grow together! I currently live in Nashville, TN but I also offer to teach online if you live elsewhere or if you just prefer it.

 I am aware that everyone is different and therefore lessons need to be individually tailored every time. I will make an effort to get to know you as a person as well as your reason for playing the drums so I can then adjust your lesson material adequately. This ensures that every student is enjoying themselves from the very first lesson and therefore the learning will naturally occur much faster.

For beginner students, I will teach you the basics of drumming in an approachable way to make it enjoyable from the very start. For experienced drummers, I can improve your technique, groove, feel, tone, articulation, dynamics, stage performance, vocabulary, listening, and reading. All this so you can become a better musician, not just a drummer. I also like to teach in a way that empowers you to teach yourself in the future. ABOUT MY TEACHING EXPERIENCE I have been teaching 1-on-1 lessons for 11 years. I also have 7 years experience leading drum and percussion workshops.
