I am a drummer, composer, educator and multi (performance/composition) award winner in more than 7 countries. Love of education has taken me across the world where I gained a Masters degree in Musicology from Tunisia, a Bachelors degree in Jazz from New York and another degree in Indian classical music from Chennai India. Beside performing, teaching is one of my main passions. I love sharing my experiences with others and inspire them to be the best they can be.
Beside English, I am a native Arabic and French speaker and I do teach language as well. My language and music teaching experience has included, for the past 10 years, privet lessons, online lessons and classroom lessons in elementary, middle and high school as well as universities.
Known for his musicality, innovative drumming and Educational methods, Ayman has found a unique musical voice as a result of his passion for jazz and his natural Tunisian folk music. During his second decade, the New York based drummer has played in European, African and Asian festivals with countless stellar jazz artists and Grammy winners from allover the globe. His reputation has steadily grown with every performance and he is rapidly becoming one of the most brilliant drummer composer of his generation.

Ayman's love for music has taking him across the world including India where he studied at Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music and toured across the country with the prestigious Splendor of Masters playing with some of the most well known living legends of Indian music including Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Shubankar Banerjee and Prasanna. Few years later, Ayman has moved to New York City where he is currently based after he graduated from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music with a strong merit scholarship.

He has appeared playing as a drummer, pianist, konnakol vocalist and a multi hand percussionist in stages such as Reykjavic Jazz festival, Carthage international festival and Dubai Jazz festival.
Ayman is an amazing drum teacher! He not only touches on how to read music notation but also gives you the freedom to incorporate your own sense of style in your drumming. He knows the mechanics when it comes to being technical but also on how to feel the music. He has a great passion for this art form, and if you are also passionate as a student, only good will come from taking his lessons!!+ Read More
I had totally a great experience, Ayman has very good skills as a player and a teacher. He knows exactly what a student need and how to keep you motivated. Highly recommended.

Amazing teacher !!! gerat passion and love for teaching, great skills and the lessons outcome were the best!
Ayman is probably the most honest teacher I've ever had just to not say the best, however he is, after having few lessons I felt this guy is really wanting to help my playing, he is teaching for the love of doing it and love of helping others. My online lessons were just so inspiring, hope to meet him one day. Thank you Ayman!+ Read More
