About Giuliano Kolling

About me:

I’m Giuliano Kolling, a Brazilian drummer based in London with more than 15 years of playing and a wealth of experience in teaching, performing and recording.I’m enthusiastic, reliable and a committed musician with specialty in Rock, Metal, Pop and Brazilian music.

I come from a very musical family and as a child I studied piano and the piccolo flute. From age 12 to the end of my teens I was a member of the Canarinhos de Novo Hamburgo choir, and I toured the whole of Brazil with regular performances.

In my late teens I fell in love with drums and so I began serious studies on modern drumming. I eventually took regular lessons with renowned Brazilian drummer Demetrius Locks for just under 4 years.

During this same period I taught drumming to children, teens and adults, on my own studio and at Musisinos music school in my city, I also made regular performances with Rock, Original and Wedding bands and  at church with a professional gospel band.

I moved to London in early 2012 and since then I have been teaching drums and taking part of session work. In addition, at the same time I received a BMUS (HONS) POPULAR MUSIC PERFORMANCE Degree on Drums at BIMM – The British and Irish Modern Music Institute, one of the most renowned modern music institutes in London. 

Why going to your drum teacher if he can come to you?

No matter your reason – weather, traffic, available time… It’s easier to have your drum lessons at home prior to going to music school. This way of learning how to play drums can help you to stay more comfortable and concentrated, which will help you learn more in less time. Additionally, I teach lots of students from Wednesdays to Saturdays at Drumshack on Lavender Hill, a well known drum shop specialising in vintage drums, new and second hand items. There are great drums, cymbals and PA for your lessons at Drumshack.

I have a lot of experience teaching children of all ages. For young students I concentrate on proper posture and grip, rudiments, play-along songs, sight reading, relevant theory, and I can also work on Grades (if required, debut: Grade 8+). I always make sure my lessons are inspiring, engaging and fun.

For Intermediate and Advanced players I can customize lessons to your requirements and goals. Some of the topics I can help with are:

  • Grip
  • Finger control
  • Moeller technique
  • Foot and Double pedal technique
  • Sight reading
  • Groove and dynamics
  • Rudiments
  • Independence
  • Rhythms – Rock, Metal, Funk, Brazilian and many more

“The greatest combination of technique and ferocity in anyone I’ve ever had the chance to play with! Giuliano not only plays with precision, but does so with a great punch and deep musicality. A superb drummer!”

Chris Van Hayden

I’ve known Giuliano for over 12 years and when I knew he was relocating to London I immediately offered him a drums teacher position position at my school of rock ‘Kidz’n’rock’ in Wandsworth. Over the course of a year he was helping me run after school clubs and band sessions across the borough, as well as doing drums lessons one to one and in groups. From the start Giuliano was a great addition to the school and all the kids loved working with him. Apart from being an incredibly skilled drummer he is able to easily interact with children and create the ideal learning environment


My son Lucas loves his drums lesson with Giuliano. It is the highlight of his week and it is paying off as Lucas has really learnt a lot in the last six months. A thumbs up to Giuliano for his hard work!


Giuliano is a fantastic drums teacher. He has been tutoring my son Josh for over two years and has been a great inspiration and influence on him. Giuliano is not only is a master of his craft, but knows how to engage with children and get the best out of them.


Thanks Giuliano for the amazing drum tracks you recorded us. We really loved how you interpreted the tunes and developed our basic ideas. We’ll be producing a quality demo soon and your contribution has been invaluable

Melissa Vannoni
