If it's difficult for you then it was probably difficult for me too. All levels are welcome; let's get you started, up to speed or over the hump. It's time to get to it!

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.
