Drum lessons taught on a one-to-one basis with Mikey Ciancio, a professional freelance drummer who has had over a decade of experience playing with some of the best musicians in the world.
I am a professional freelance drummer and drum teacher based in Leighton Buzzard. I started playing the drums when I was 11, and passed my grade 8 with a high level distinction when I was 15.
I believe that no matter how good you are, there are always areas where you can improve. For this reason, I continue to hone my skills every day, and have studied with some of the best drummers in the world. I have over a decade of experience playing professionally for many different artists, shows, and original projects. Over the last 10 years I have been teaching students and developing my drum school. I am proud to say my students have a 100% exam pass rate. More recently, I have opened up a brand new drum studio to tailor my students' experience to the best it can be.
All my lessons are taught on a one-to-one basis. All ages and abilities are welcome, and I believe it is never too late to start, because at all levels, playing music is a rewarding experience. I am dedicated to helping my students achieve goals that are important to them. Whether it's learning your favourite songs, tackling the grades, or gaining expert command over the drum set. As a teacher, I am patient, non-judgmental and easy-going. I will keep you challenged and continuously progressing in a fun and relaxed environment.
My daughter started having weekly lessons with Mikey from 6 years old and is still as keen many years on. Mikey is motivating and able to communicate exceptionally well especially with young children. The facilities are excellent and he has his own brand new drum studio.
Mikey has an amazing skill of finding many ways to make difficult and challenging parts of learning a song manageable.
Mikey is a very professional, experienced and patient teacher. He makes the lessons creatively fun and is very encouraging, enabling my daughter to progress through her grades. I can’t recommend Mikey highly enough!
5 years ago our son began his journey with Mikey as he worked through his exam grades. The confidence that he's gained and the relationship he's developed with Mikey is 2nd to none.
Mikey is a fantastic tutor who brings out the natural talent in his students and seeing the successes with every exam passed is all we can ask for.
Mikey is a skilled drummer as well as drum tutor and has been teaching my son for nearly 3 years. My son was a beginner when he started tuition with Mikey, he has moved through the grades at speed and is now studying Grade 8.
Mikey is attentive, patient, flexible and most importantly has an excellent rapport with his students which really builds their confidence. The added value has been the support Mikey has given to get my son through his music GCSE. I would highly recommend, especially as Mikey inspires young people to have a passion for drumming which can compete with the Xbox!
