Meet Jose

My real name is José María de Lucas Sacristán, however, I am mostly known in the scene as Chema Sacristán. I am a professional drummer since 2004 and bellow I present a brief biography of my professional career in the U.K. In 2002 and being only 19 years old, my vocation for music was really clear and I decided to move to Bristol (UK), where I resided for 4 years. In Bristol, I had the chance to be exposed and to experiment with all kinds of music. I performed my first shows of rock, jazz, world music and many more. I was privileged enough to be exposed to musicians of all genres and to work with over 5 different local bands, continuously performing in Bristol and the South West and achieving experience. In September 2006, I moved to London to study in Tech Music Schools, London, as well known as “ drum tech” , where I completed my higher education studies and obtained the university title: BMUS POPULAR MUSIC PERFORMANCE, (HONS) licensed by the West London University. Once I finished my University degree in 2011, I started to work exclusively as a performing drummer and as a drum teacher, giving private lessons in my own studio, Oktopus Music Services in North West London. In the past 9 years, I had the opportunity and privilege of performing, recording and writing with some of the very best musicians, well known in the London and UK scene, such as Kevin Glasgow, (Known as one of the best bassists in Europe) Robin Banerjee (guitarist of Amy Winehouse), Roberto Manzin (Zuchero), Felipe Martíns (Emeterians), Juan Whist (The Voice National Spanish tv) and many other figures of jazz and other genres, performing regularly and showcasing in most London live music venues as well as the very best UK and Europe entertainment agencies such as Scarlett Entertainment, Full Stop Entretainment and many others. After 15 years of professional experiences, I have decided to fully focus on teaching drums and performing. It is noticeable that my studies, and my extensive professional career, represent my vocation and devotion for music. As a consequence of this, I master many techniques and abilities such as improvising, independence, coordination as well as vocabulary in practically all music styles within the modern popular music and some genres of world music.
 
My target is to transmit my passion for music, drums and percussion in general, not only on the stage, but also on my private lessons. My teachers when I was a Tech music school , always mentioned how strong ability to teach and transmit enthusiasm was, from early stages in my studies, as I completed the music education module on the 3rd year of my degree. In this website, you can check out my videos, photos, a list of artists and reputable musicians I have worked with. You can also find details and contents of my drum lessons and my contact details to enquire about it. Kind regards, Jose Sacristan

Eugenio R.'s review on Sep 15, 2020

My children have taken lessons from Jose for over 10 years and we've always been delighted to work with him, both in person and more recently online. He's a wonderful teacher and great guy who really cares about his teaching and his students. Totally trustworthy and always willing to go that extra mile. A real gem.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
I offer 60-minute private 1 to 1 drum lessons at £30/ lesson. I am happy to teach on line via zoom and also in person at one of my teaching spaces in West London. I have two fully-equipped and ready to go teaching locations in Acton Town and also in North Acton. I also offer block-bookings at £100 per 4 lessons. (T's & C's apply) I offer half price trial lessons for all 1st time students.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
When I start with a new student I send a quick for to fill out , asking for your goals, experience if any, favourite genres and to find out the student preferences, targets and availability. On our first lesson, I will assess your level of drumming and spot any weaknesses , bad habits or bad postures as well as give you to give you general guidance as to how to start developing your drumming and musicianship skills. I offer half price trial lessons for all 1st time students.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
I completed a 3-year University degree: BMUS on Popular music performance (HONS) on drums at West London University (Former TVU) in Ealing , West London, finishing my studies in 2011.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Look for someone fully dedicated and get a teacher who actually performs for a living, rather than teaching for a living. Performing musicians can truly transfer the right skills to become a stage performer and a professionally paid and trained musician. Teachers who only teach for a living and never actually managed to live professionally from performing, do not usually have the dedication and passion of a performing musician.
What are some good examples of past customers?
I have been teaching children and adults since 2011. I have dozens of very positive and satisfactory client reviews as well as parents reviews.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I play drums since 2002. I am a professional drummer since and I have made a living for 18 years with lessons, shows and leading 5 stablished function bands, performing nationwide.
