Use of notated music, involves theory and reading (note value, subdivisions, rhythmic transcriptions, etc.). Lessons usually start with technique warm up, then applies new techniques to the student’s style of music but includes introduction to many different genres and approaches.

Hugo has a calm manner and a good way of explaining the rudiments of drum kit.
He has a creative approach to learning the drums and has a very wide knowledge of different styles of playing, as well as an enthusiasm to teach them!
Highly recommended, great personality and very attentive. Actively helping your progress even outside of official classes. I had a few hours with him and I can tell that there a lot of little details that you can’t get right from online lessons but Hugo will spot them and correct them quickly. I’ll keep going back to him.
