"...I began lessons with Luciano after having quite some time out of playing regularly. I had a clear idea of what I wanted to achieve, and he was quick to assesses my needs and work out a plan for my progression. I am already being challenged an pushed in ways I couldn't have imagined a few weeks ago. His lessons are concise, detailed and follow a clear path. Luciano is very patient, very warm friendly, but really knows how to push to get positive results. I come away feeling inspired and motivated to practice every single time. I have had 3 lessons so far and plan to continue indefinitely - highly recommended!!"(Matt)
"...It's been a dream of mine for a while to play the drums, and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. Luciano's approach is to put the music first allowing the pupil to really understand the instrument and it's capabilities as a whole. His relaxed manor was conducive to me learning step by step and his patience really allowed me to believe in my capability. If I wasn't leaving london I would definitely still be learning with him. I feel I have not just a teacher but a friend as well." (Ayo)
"...Me and both my sons were looking for a drum instructor to cater for each of our needs. We went through two prev instructors but were not satisfied. And the. We met Luciano and never looked back. My kids have advanced so fast and play really well. I myself also improving my drum skills to another level. Awesome teacher and lucky to have found him."(Amjaid)
