About Kapil Trivedi

** Drum lessons from a professional drummer with over 15 years’ experience **
I’ve been drumming for over 15 years, and in that time I've been fortunate enough to have recorded 7 albums, 6 of which have made the top 20 of the UK charts. I've also been fortunate enough to accompany each album with a world tour.
I first found my love for teaching when I was invited by Brit award winning rapper Plan B to be part of the Hackney Project, which aired on the BBC in 2011. The goal was to teach music to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. It was there that I witnessed first-hand the positive impact that simply learning a musical instrument can have on one’s life. And I've since been building a strong student base ever since.
Passing on what I've learnt from my experiences as a touring musician and handing it down to the next person is something I've found to be truly rewarding.
