Hello! I am a 25-Year-old percussionist. I am currently working with the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra in Europe.

I have been casually teaching private lessons on the side since 2016 and I am currently available to teach lessons at online. I have helped my students with learning to read music, developing a good technical basis for future development, audition preparation and performance tips.

Jean Pierre Vaillancourt Cassar received his training at the University of Malta in 2016 where he received a degree in Music Performance. As an expert in his field, Jean Pierre looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Jean's teaching style is engaging and progress-oriented, yet still ensuring good technical basis.

An outstanding teacher with hands-on experience in what it means to be working in the music industry. Jean Pierre has delightedly helped me read some very hard music in a past concert we had together and also prepped me up for an audition with a foreign orchestra. Highly suggest!!!

Jean Pierre was very kind and patient with me, helping me get going on the Marimba. He helped me improve my technique by finding exercises that were fun and also playing simple pieces and songs

Jean thank you for that awesome lesson. My daughter was very pleased and is continuing to make lots of noise in the house :) At least it's practice! See you next time!

Took my young son to start lessons with Jean Pierre and instantly captured his liking. My son is always eager for the next lesson.

Very friendly and intuitive.

Jean was so nice and fun during our lesson. I didn't know anything about the drum set but he was able to get me started with something structured and practical right away. I have a very clear understanding of the journey ahead. Thanks Jean :)
