Ciao guys, Mattia here. Have you ever wanted to play drums but you don’t know how to start? Or have you played for a while and feel stuck, like you’re losing time or missing a piece? I felt the same when I first started, but private lessons helped me achieve my goals and become the person I am today: A Professional Musician. If I did it, so can you. I’m excited to offer you online lessons where I will help you achieve your goals through a personalized path which includes technique + reading; groove like pop, rock, jazz; fills + solos; and anything else you wanna work on. Are you ready to improve your skills?

Want to learn to play drums or get your drum chops even better? I can help! Ever since I started drumming at 10 years old, I fell in love. I've toured the country in multiple pop/ rock acts as the drummer and have tracked on countless albums. Come get better at drums at the beautiful Four Horsemen Studios with Justin.

Professional teacher since 2008. Started with a snare drum in fourth grade and never stopped! Alumnus of University of Washington (BM, cum laude, Jazz Studies) + Roosevelt High School. I make sure to teach students what they are most interested in while also providing them with a strong musical foundation they can apply to any path.
