About This Class

Edit Your Project

Ciao !

Ready to learn some contagious drum beats?  My name is Carlo and in my 25 years of playing drums & teaching fun in UK, Italy and Portugal I have heard many times things like '' I can't do that ''  or '' I cannot even dance with the beat of a song '' and more!

Well, I am here to tell you that those days are over. You can indeed drop those unfulfilling thoughts and misconceptions and just follow my class to see if what I am saying is true, namely that you can quickly learn and have so much fun drumming and then share it with your friends and family!

 Once you master some drumming which I will explain and show you how, you will have so much fun and it will become part of you, something you will never forget - like learning to go on a bicycle. 

Whats more is that drumming is actually also an EXCELLENT RELAXING & STRESS RELIEVING TOOL !

Just have a look at my INTRO class and then send me your feed back and let me know what you think.Soon more classes!

I am sorry for the video quality but I was too excited to quickly share this class here with this FANTASTIC platform that Vimeo has created !

AND if you do not yet own a drum is just fine! You can use anything to do what I share with you in this Beginner Videos Project, just go ahead and enjoy it again and again and you will see that the type of skill and information that is shared here is more than drumming technique - go beyond the words, experience the class and you will truly take the most out of it. Then, let me know what you think.

Relax with Percussion & Drums for Beginners!

Hello everyone!

Teaching drums and playing in London, Italy and Portugal, has been and still is a main love of my life for a long, long time.

In the well over two decades of experience I have learned that drumming occupies and focuses the mind and creates fun, sense of fulfilment and relaxation - it relieves stress.

That is why beside the one-to-one and group percussion workshops classes I do, I feel to share some of my classes here to gather feedback and then propose mor...
