London based, world class symphonic percussionist and drummer, for your Drumming journey

Methodology

I firmly believe in the importance of music lessons being enjoyable and rewarding, so I encourage the students to learn to play the songs and music they love. It is also important to me that they learn a bit about music theory, how to read music, and how to play the instrument with a good technique.
Whether you're already a competent player or an absolute beginner, technique and musicianship will be at the forefront of your lessons should you choose me as your teacher.

Experience

I have been teaching for 20 years and have helped students pass exams on percussion instruments and drum set, and I currently have a student preparing for their percussion exam. I regularly use my 20 years experience playing with different bands and orchestras in my lessons to help students fulfil their full potential as musicians.

Serban's CV

My name's Serban, and I'm a professional drummer/percussionist with 32 years experience performing live in rock and symphonic orchestras. My qualifications, teaching experience, passion and long standing dedication to this wonderful instrument hold me in good stead.
I started learning and playing music at 6 years age, as a pianist.
I am a friendly and professional music teacher who loves helping others experience the joy of music. Whether you're already a competent player or an absolute beginner, technique and musicianship will be at the forefront of your lessons should you choose me as your teacher.
My students are always encouraged to perform their pieces in such a way that even the most basic ones are a pleasure to listen to, not merely a collection of notes that don't say anything.
My aim is to transmit my passion and love for music to my students and helping them developing their skills and have a great time doing so.
My focus is to give each student the tools to play whatever music they desire to, according the the professional standards of the given genre, as well as to arm them with the ability to develop themselves further down the line and create their own artistic voice.

Serban is a great and patience teacher. He motivates me all the time and pushes me to become better and better.

The way he explains and teaches is very easy to understand and to practice. I definitely recommend him as a drum teacher, mostly because he brings a lot of passion in what he does.

We previously collaborated on several mix media educational projects involving music and art and I appreciated very much the capacity to be flexible and to think outside the box but nonetheless to deliver a good and professional outcome. For the moment he is teaching my nephews drumming lessons and they are appreciating very much the general mood of the activities and and how he makes the learning fun and easy.

I’ve choose to take some drum lessons because I wasn’t feeling well, I needed a change in my life and a way to beat anxiety. And I actually beat the anxiety, by playing drums. I didn’t knew Serban before, I’ve chose him randomly and it was a great decision. He has a lot of patience with me and I’m a young adult who’s shy like a toddler. Or I better say that I was. It change the way I feel, I’m better now, and I’m so thankful to Serban for inspiring me with his music. Thanks a lot, and I hope you’re music will inspire others to feel better too
