Actually I live in Italy and I have a personal studio where I teach private drum lessons and online lessons.
Teaching is a great responsibility and a job that must be done with passion and patience. This is the greatest lesson I have learned.
I can teach students everything about drums and how to develop their own sound and personality, developing a daily routines and analyzing the drumming of the great masters.
I know how to offer constructive criticism in a way that encourages students to work harder, not discourage them or make them feel guilty.
I love teaching and would greatly appreciate the opportunity to offer my skills and experience with you.
Hello! I’m Antonio and my mission is to pass my passion about the drums and the music to everyone who is interested. I would like to show them how important is learning an instrument and improving new skills and, have fun getting into the fantastic world of the drums. My method focuses on: coordination and independence, grooves, play melodies on drum, the art of brushes, analysis of the world’s greatest drummers, developing a solo, the ride cymbal technique, the sound of jazz drumming, tuning the drums and more. I would like to help every single drummer to get better with the drum and to broaden their horizons.
