About Nico Ariza

Rhythm, or the strong, regular repeating patterns of sound, is the most familiar aspect of what makes music musical. And if there’s an instrument whose main purpose is to hold down the rhythm in modern music, then it’s drumming. The innate nature of rhythm makes drumming and percussion the most popular first foray into music among kids and young students. And when it comes to developing talent development, a competent drum tutor can play a significant role. My name is Stefan, I’m a professional musician and for over 12 years, I’ve been teaching drumming to students of all ages. I have two degrees in music, I’m a drummer for an independent rock band, and I also have four years experience playing with professional marching drumline. My lessons can range from drumming basics like learning to play simple drum beats—lessons which will already start you jamming with popular tunes in no time— to advanced lessons like creating melodic fills, syncopation, drastic note variations, and odd time signatures. Lessons will really be tailored depending on your skill level and goals, all making sure of your steady progression and development. I also provide a free half-hour session for every 5 lessons booked in advance. Whether you’re just a beginner who just wants to learn to play along to classic pop songs, or you’re already a competent drummer who wants to polish your skills and take your playing to greater heights, then I’m the drum tutor for you. I would love to discuss a personalised musical programme just for you, so please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks for your interest and I hope to hear from you soon.

Vicky b.'s review on Mar 03, 2020

My daughter learnt a lot in the first lesson and she likes nico he is very good at what he does and very professional and he has a laugh the only downfall is it is £40 for the hour but I cant tmreally complain as he is worth the money. He is very prompt with time. We will be using him again and again. Thank you nico.

Hello! Thank you for your honest review, and I'm sorry that you feel this price is high. I can assure you that I only charge what I know I am worth and I can honestly say in this industry you usually get what you pay for. Most drum schools and agencies start their prices from £54 upwards and pay the teachers much less, teachers who usually have low qualifications. I have a Bachelors and masters degree in my field and absolutely love teaching hence why I believe my prices to be fair. Thank you very much for the kind words however, and star is an excellent student! Looking forward to our next lesson, Nico

Paul S.'s review on Apr 05, 2019

Nico was very helpful with explaining the process of teaching and how he plans his lesson. His dedication and professionalism was clear from day one and he explained to me in detail how each and every exercise will help me improve my technique and quality of playing. Would highly recommend Nico to anyone, at any level, who’s looking for a teacher!

Tasos A.'s review on Apr 05, 2019

Nico is teaching drums to 5yo son and I'm really happy to say that he's doing a great job! My son loves playing drums, he is enjoying learning from Nico and that is most important! Nico is a good professional and really entusiastic, good-natured guy with lots of patience. My son and Nico developed a good relationship very quickly and they communicate very well. I'm impressed and I already recommended Nico to my neighbour.

Nico is a natural. He helped me understand all the basic concepts of drumming and in no time I could play a lot of my favourite songs. He is patient, experienced and makes everything look fun and easy! I'd highly recommend him.
