“Luca has been teaching my son for a couple of years. I tried some other drum teachers before Luca, but my son made huge strides under Luca's guidance. My son went from an absolute beginner to being able to read and transcribe sheet music and he's playing so well. I would highly recommend Luca to anybody that wants to learn how to play. He's very professional, very talented, and has excellent methods of teaching.”

“Luca was a pleasure to work with! He was polite and gracious, and also has a substantial knowledge set, which enables him to quickly and clearly answer any questions I've got. I've had teachers in the past that make lessons a bit of a chore, but Luca is able to make even the difficult sessions enjoyable. Maybe it's that relaxed Italian charm!”
