Keys, Drums, Theory & Harmony and Percussion tutor

I've been studying music since the age of 4, mainly percussion, drums and keys. Since I was 16, I've been teaching in music schools and privately.
I studied in Oporto's Music Conservatoire for 15 years and over the years I took part in numerous auditions and concerts in solo and orchestras (Symphony, Wind and Percussion, Jazz) in Portugal and Spain.
Throughout the years, I've deepened my studies in Percussion, Drums, Keys, Theory and Harmony and Ear Training.
In 2016 I got accepted into BIMM London University in the Popular Music Performance - Drums course. Moving into second year, I focus on all styles of drumming.

Reference Letter by Joao's Teacher

To Whom it May Concern:

This Letter is in Reference to Mr João Alves who has been studying with me for the last 3 years.
He studied the following subjects: Harmony and Theory, Ear Training and piano.
Besides that, he´s also a music teacher and created a music curriculum for Drums, percussion and harmony, beginners, intermediate and advance classes.
João is reliable, conscientious, kind and dedicated. He shows genuine concern for the children and their needs.
Not only João is a talented musician himself, but he also shares his talent with the children so that turn into experience, the joy of music.
His classes are well prepared, informative, and very enjoyable. João´s music classes consist of many activities including, playing instruments, listening activities, harmony, piano and ear training.
As a director and teacher myself, I am fortunate to be able to see João growing not only as a musician, but also as a person.
João is a valuable asset to a music teacher post and I highly recommend him.
