Connected Profiles:


I am Nuno, a professional London-based drummer, with plenty of performing and teaching experience. I graduated from a BMus Popular Music Performance degree at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in 2019 with First Honours, and I’ve been playing and studying music, and more specifically drums for 16 years.

In that time, I’ve been involved in several bands and other projects, and I’ve taught drums and percussion to people with ages ranging from 4 to 55. I am also the drums auditioning tutor for ICMP, I am a Rockshool-accredited teacher, and I am DBS-checked.

I am passionate about music and drums, and also very excited to pass on the knowledge I’ve acquired over all these years. As I currently have the chance to take on a few more students, I’m happy to teach people of all ages and levels, as I’d love to inspire more people to play music, be it as a dream or just a hobby. My sessions are entirely based on the individual needs and abilities of each student.

I have a full remote teaching setup from home, consisting of 3 high-quality camera angles, professional sound quality and a digital whiteboard, which allows us to swap learning materials very easily. This allows for our lessons to be more flexible and affordable, as it cuts down on travel times and costs.

My lessons are light and fun, as well as educative and will help you (and/or yours) reach your drumming goals.
Whether it’s your first time picking up a pair of sticks, or you’re at a fairly advanced level and wish to take your drumming or percussion skills to the next level, you can count on my tutoring services to help and support your talent.

Simply get in touch for a quick chat, and I look forward to playing great music with you.

Testimonials and References

My 5 yr old really enjoyed his first lesson - Ash G.

Nuno's lessons are very well suited to my needs and they have helped me reach a level higher than ever on the drums.
I have been playing for over 10 years, but with Nuno's expertise, I feel that my drumming improved faster in the last two months than ever before. - Alex D.

I was not sure what to expect before my first drum lesson, but as soon as Nuno walked in, he made me feel relaxed and right at home on the drums.
His teaching style revolves around the things I want to learn, and I am enjoying drumming more than I ever thought I would. Would definitely recommend - Mark A.

Nuno was incredibly patient with my 5 year old, and very enthusiastic. His passion for drums and tutoring is clear and now Ayde looks forward to his lesson every week, and practices everyday. - Georgia A.

Thank you, Nuno, for your fun drum lessons! My 4-year-old was apprehensive before his very first lesson but as soon as you left, he kept asking when you were coming back and stated that he did indeed want drum lessons. He loved his second drum lesson today, too, and at dinner he was drumming away with a pair of chop sticks! Your lessons are perfectly tailored for my son and we look forward to the lessons to come. - Yasmine A.

Nuno taught a professional, engaging and enthusiastic first drum lesson to my teenage daughter. He arrived on time and his personality was really cheerful and conscientious. Nuno explained thoroughly the process of tuning the drum and then he patiently taught the lesson.Excellent service. Would thoroughly recommended him. - Andrea P.
