"Exceptional tutor! Luigi is patient, friendly and he offers personalised lessons that cater to individual needs. It has been such an exciting and fulfilling journey to learn drums with him. Highly recommend!"- Daisy D.

" I've been having lessons with Luigi for over a year. He’s been great . He’s a warmhearted, fun and very experienced musician and teacher.. He has been professional and punctual at all times and accommodated our changing schedules with great kindness. His skills as a musician are superb and It is an absolute pleasure to learn from him" - Asif K.

"I cannot recommend Luigi highly enough. He has been teaching both of my teenage children for months and they are progressing very quickly: much faster than I thought possible. One child is shy, the other chatty and Luigi manages to get the best out of each of them. He is a friendly, patient and effective tutor. As a parent he is easy to work with: polite, punctual, responsive and flexible. How much anyone will engage with an instrument is obviously often down to how well they get on with their tutor. With Luigi that part of the equation is taken care of." - Helen L.

"Luigi has been my drum teacher for months now. I had no previous lessons and was a total beginner. Luigi has been so patient, helpful and supportive, he has a brilliant way of talking to me and helping me to understand drum concepts. I cannot rate him highly enough." - Mandy B
