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.

Whether you're just starting out, wanting to learn Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, or even Taylor Swift repertoire, maybe you're preparing for band or college auditions, or just simply looking to broaden your playing with different styles like jazz, latin, etc., I am here to guide you and help you develop the necessary skills! I have been teaching drumset for over 15 years. My lessons focus on applying technique and reading, with snare reading exercises and learning popular songs. Lessons will adjust according to the student's level, pace, and goals. My goal for my students is to have an understanding on how to use their instrument, develop versatility, discover who they are as a musician, become independent learners, while having fun along the way!

I have been teaching drums since 2003, and I start my students using The Drumset Musician, by Rick Mattingly and Rod Morgenstein. I also choose materials, from my extensive library, to address the needs of each individual. I am familiar with rock, country, blues, jazz, and world grooves, as well as marching band and orchestra. I teach the components of and purposes of voices within the set, proper grip, reading music, coordination, and feel. I also teach students how to analyze and map songs, so they can excel in a band setting. If a student is wanting to be in marching and symphonic bands, I can prepare them for those pursuits, as well. I have two sets in my studio, as well as abundant hand and auxiliary percussion instruments.
