We will work together on basic drumming concepts, technique, rudiments, reading music and grooves that will enable you to play confidently over your favourite tunes! All delivered in a relaxed and fun environment, suitable for everyone (8+).
I am professional full-time drummer with 15 years of playing experience. I am a very versatile drummer, ranging from anything rock and metal to reggae and pop and I teach students of all levels. My goal is to make you passionate as I am about drums and music and above all, to have fun learning!

I am always been extremely passionate about music since early age and eventually my interest in drums appeared at about 12 years old. I studied at Stix Drum School in Perugia (IT), attended numerous masterclasses and seminars such as the Berklee Summer School at Umbria Jazz in 2011 and Christian Meyer's (Elio e le Storie Tese) Recording MasterClass in 2013. In 2014 I spent few months studying alongside world-famous metal drummer Francesco Paoli (Fleshgod Apocalypse). A year later I moved to London to pursue my goals within a professional musician career. I later graduated first class in BA (Hons) Creative Musicianship at "ICMP" in November 2017, alongside accomplished tutors such as the world-wide drum master Gabor Dornyei.
I enjoy listening to a range of diverse genres and this helped me to shape my inner curiosity in discovering and exploring new musical territories. I grew up as a drummer playing mainly metal (thrash, groove, death) and rock (hard-rock): projects I was involved in featured the thrash metal quartet "Mass Crysis" and the hard rock act "No oNe Nothing". Once moved to London I embarked different paths playing in "Hide Your Mother", an electro indie-rock group and in the dub rock gypsy band Tarantola. Consequently, my study interests expanded too, developing dynamical precision, tight grooves, latin and linear chops. Since late 2017, I have a own personal studio in London, being able to record drums for my own projects and for session works. I am available for any session jobs, live, studio or remotely. With Tarantola, I toured central and southern Italy in the Summer of 2017 as well as performed on important stages in London such as the Koko, Hootananny, RichMix, Monarch, Proud, Under the Bridge etc. In late 2018, I recorded the 4 singles forming the 1st official band EP “Rogue Rouge Circus” at the acclaimed Tileyard studios in London as well as at and together with producer Paul Stanborough (Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams, Kelis).
2019 has been a crucial year for the growth and development of myself as a drummer, as I recorded a follow-up EP with Tarantola once again with Paul Stanborough and played regularly all over South West England. A memorable performance with Tarantola was at The Scoop in front of the world famous Tower Bridge for an audience of 3000 as well as the two slots at Camp Bestival 2019 as Tarantola appears on the bill. By late 2019 I became student of Francesco Mendolia (Incognito). Currently, I am regularly playing live gigs and recording drums for several artists in London as well as regularly teaching students of all ages and levels.
Outstanding drummer, great technique and attention to details. Very professional with a great feel and tone. Highly recommend for live and studio work! Oh and he can sing too!!!
Edoardo plans out all the lessons really well to develop your skills over a period of time and slowly build it up until you're ready to jam to a song. He teaches the necessary basic technique with detail and patience. Edoardo is really encouraging, helpuful and professional. I cannot recommend him highly enought.
Edoardo has always delivered an outstanding level of drums lessons! Always punctual, prepared and excited about his work!
He always prepared personalized lessons for my needs and brought my playing to a professional level in a couple of years!
Edoardo is an amazing guy, super chilled and relaxed. Fantastic to work with.
As a drummer and teacher I would highly recommend him for your private lessons or function band, session player, studio project. Top guy and Top drummer!
