If you are starting out: I will teach you how to become comfortable on the drum kit while having fun. We will learn how to play to music, learn rudiments and get started on your drumming journey.
If you are looking for the next steps: we will delve into creativity on the drum kit. From permutations to orchestration, polyrythms and jazz improvisation. We will explore the infinite ways of applying rudiments.
I take a relaxed but focused approach to teaching. We will cover any questions you may have from technique and exercises to drum gear and university study.
Hi, my name is Matteo Tontodonati. And I have been playing drums since I was 13 years old. I have played in all kinds of situations ranging from small jazz bars and venues to big festival stages such as the Ghent Feesten in Belgium. I have experience with Big Bands, Jazz trios, Rock, Pop, Funk and Metal Bands.
Currently studying Popular Music at The Royal Northern College of Music in Greater Manchester. I have achieved a Grade 8 Trinity College of London Drum Kit Certificate, and a Grade 5 ABRSM Certificate in Music Theory. I have experience in Big Bands (SBS Big Band) and smaller bands such as Rock and Pop Bands (Telling Secrets, Cherry Moon etc.)
Perfect! Matteo is very capable and engaging. I have specific goals that aren't on a straight line learning path, and he grasped them straightaway and is excited to work on them with me even though they're a bit off the beaten path. Awesome professor :).
Very involved in conversation and outgoing. Easy to understand his goals and very motivated.
Matteo has excellent time management skills and an ability to adapt his teaching style to suit individual students. Very easy to chat to and get along with!
