Whether you have been playing for years, or have never held a pair of drumsticks, it’s never too late to take your skills to the next level!
Drum Lessons Groningen is a new and modern music school based in Groningen since 2017. We offer private music lessons, group music lessons and workshops in our fully equipped studio. Instruments include drums, marimba, vibraphone, snare drum and cajon flamenco among others. We are aware practicing drums can be an issue regarding noise and space, that's why at Drum Lessons Groningen we want to help by offering our studio for individual drum practice purposes.
"My name is Marco Díaz. I'm a percussionist and drummer from Spain based in Groningen since 2014. As percussionist I have been trained musically and technically in many different styles, covering from classical music to contemporary music as well as electronic music. I see the percussion world as a playground with a lot of instruments with unique sounds and endless rhythmic possibilities. My working experience as percussion and music theory instructor during the last 10 years in Spain and the Netherlands, next to my passion and need for sharing my experience with the drumset and the percussion world are the reasons why I created Drum Lessons Groningen."
"My biggest pleasure is to see the musical growth of each individual student. As teacher, my ultimate goal is to give students all the tools needed so they can start experimenting for themselves. Drumming is addictive, once you start you will listen to music with another approach."
"Hello guys! My name is Ignacio Ampurdanés. I began my studies of Classical Percussion in Seville, with Carlos Cansino and Gilles Midoux, soloist of the Royal Symphonic Orchestra of Seville. At the same time, I combined this studies with drums, specializing in jazz from 2013 onwards. I have taken courses with Antonio Coronel, José Mena, Joan Terol and Jo Krause, and currently I am completing a Bachelor’s degree in Jazz Drums with Joost Van Schaik as a main professor."
"My roots are linked to Andalusian music and I have played cajon flamenco since my childhood, with which I investigate in a self-taught manner. I use to play cajons made by Luthier Vicente Casto, with them I had carried out different projects, both in Spain and the Netherlands. Nowadays, I teach cajon flamenco at Drum Lessons Groningen school"
