Having spent three years studying with world renowned virtuoso Chad Wackerman, Nando offers his students something that can only come from being a seasoned professional. His proven teaching method has an emphasis on technique, reading, independence and co-ordination through varied musical styles including Pop, Rock, Jazz, Funk and Odd-Times.
Nando's teaching methods involve the study of the Moeller technique for playing drum strokes. This technique utilises the combination of a wrist stroke and the art of stick rebound to produce a fluid and natural playing style. Nando's students consistently achieve awards and recognition at band competitions (e.g Yamaha Band Festival) held each year in Sydney.
His excellent rapport with students has made him an in-demand teacher. Nando is available for private one-on-one lessons at student's homes or on campus at their school.
