My name is Johnny Agisilaou and I am a professional drummer. I have graduated at Codarts from the Latin department on drums. I am currently doing my masters at the Royal Conservatoire of the Hague on jazz drums. From the age of 10 I started listening to rock and from there onwards I wanted to become a drummer. Through my teenage years I got introduced with jazz and latin music and from the age of 15 I started playing this music. A major influence on my musical career was the playing style of Tony Williams, the drummer of Miles Davis. Some other influences of mine include drummers such as, John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Vinnie Colaiuta (Indipedent/Sting), Stewart Copeland (The Police), Marcus Gilmore, Michael Olivera (Alfredo Rodriguez Trio) etc. One of my biggest aims is to give to my students the ability to play all kinds of music in the future while mainly understanding the philosophy of jazz drumming. Jazz drumming techniques are “the classical” music of drums. Closing, I would like to make my students understand the great groove philosophy of latin music and find their own way in their musical process.
From my second year in Codarts I got my first students and from there on I love inspiring others through music and drumming.
In my lessons the main goal for beginners would be for the student to understand the basics of drumming and create a clear view of the instrument through songs and any requested repertoire. Lastly I would focus on things such as drum techniques and coordination as well as timing.
If you are already a bit experienced around the drums and you are looking for getting your technique better or looking for a different musical approach for your music, for the students who are intermediate level I would focus on technique, brushes playing, advanced coordination, odd time signatures and for them to schedule out their future path to a certain musical goal.
For the advanced drummers I would really focus on virtuoso snare etudes, advanced techniques and coordination, transcriptions from jazz drummers, sound and a very clear goal for their musical career and path.
If you are a musician that is in a band and its looking for guidance I would like to give you feedback and help you with your band goals. From the age of 15 I have been in numerous band and projects and I am currently active in 6 different projects at the moment. I can help you find your sound and expand your musical creativity with your band and take you to the goal you are aiming for through constructive and helpful feedback.
