I am a motivated, hard-working and enthusiastic professional drummer and teacher internationally educated. I have been working as teacher and freelance drummer with some of the most reputable musician

Methodology

I approach each student differently depending of their level, their golds, capabilities , musical tastes and professional aspirations. Having studied over 70 different drum methods and having spent the last 18 years performing and studying drums I am a very all rounded teacher able to teach from the very basics, to very advance levels. I teach through different systems which allow me to help the student to progress in a very solid, progressive and timely efficient manner. I master pop, rock, soul, funk, R&B, Cuban and Brazilian music, Flamenco and lots of different World music beats. I am also confident with jazz, swing and many other musical genres.

I have extensive knowledge of :
-Vocabulary
-Rudiments
-Reading / Transcribing
-Stylistic awareness
-basic and advance drum techniques
-independence/ coordination exercises
-Professional tips for the musicianship career, recording industry and the entertainment industry
-Recording drums

Experience

My real name is José María de Lucas Sacristán, however, I am mostly known in the scene as Chema Sacristán. I am a professional drummer since 2004 and bellow I present a brief biography of my professional career in the U.K.

In 2002 and being only 19 years old, my vocation for music was really clear and I decided to move to Bristol (UK), where I resided for 4 years. In Bristol, I had the chance to be exposed and to experiment with all kinds of music. I performed my first shows of rock, jazz, world music and many more. I was privileged enough to be exposed to musicians of all genres and to work with over 5 different local bands, continuously performing in Bristol and the South West and achieving experience.

In September 2006, I moved to London to study in Tech Music Schools, London, as well known as “ drum tech” , where I completed my higher education studies and obtained the university title: BMUS POPULAR MUSIC PERFORMANCE,
(HONS) licensed by the West London University. Once I finished my University degree in 2011, I started to work exclusively as a performing drummer and as a drum teacher, giving private lessons in my own studio, Oktopus Music Services in North West London.

In the past 9 years, I had the opportunity and privilege of performing, recording and writing with some of the very best musicians, well known in the London and UK scene, such as Kevin Glasgow, (Known as one of the best bassists in Europe) Robin Banerjee (guitarist of Amy Winehouse), Roberto Manzin (Zuchero), Felipe Martíns (Emeterians), Juan Whist (The Voice National Spanish tv) and many other figures of jazz and other genres, performing regularly and showcasing in most London live music venues as well as the very best UK and Europe entertainment agencies such as Scarlett Entertainment, Full Stop Entertainment and many others.

After 15 years of professional experiences, I have decided to fully focus on teaching drums and performing. It is noticeable that my studies, and my extensive professional career, represent my vocation and devotion for music. As a consequence of this, I master many techniques and abilities such as improvising, independence, coordination as well as vocabulary in practically all music styles within the modern popular music and some genres of world music.
 
My target is to transmit my passion for music, drums and percussion in general, not only on the stage, but also on my private lessons. My teachers when I was a Tech music school , always mentioned how strong ability to teach and transmit enthusiasm was, from early stages in my studies, as I completed the music education module on the 3rd year of my degree.

Kindest regards,
Jose Sacristan

I haven't had lessons with Jose but I've hired him countless times to play in my band and the reason why I keep calling him it's because of his diverse music knowledge.
In my band we play different styles; salsa, cumbia, reggaeton, pop, funk, rock n roll... and he dominates them all, which it's one of the best talents a musician can have. I recommend his teaching 100%, you will certainly be taught well.
