Personal Statement

my name is Francesco Ciniglio. I have been studying and playing drums since I was 5 years old, and started teaching it at 15.
I always found teaching as a way to let other people know what I think about music, and at the same time let them develop a more elastic mentality about music. No matter how old a student is, I think a teacher always has to have a huge array of possibilities about different ways of teaching, in base of each single student. I also study Pedagogy and I know that lessons are not always all the same. The role of the teacher should consist in being versatile and malleable everytime, by being a friend, and a person who the student can relay on musically and personally.
More in detail, I usually give a lot of examples on how to play a specific groove or tempo on the drums, either by playing the student some tracks by my iPod or playing WITH him/her some melodies/harmonies on piano.
I’m looking forward to meeting you student and being as inspiring for you as all the teachers I’ve had were for me.

Best regards,

Francesco Ciniglio, drummer, composer and educator.
