Alain Charmoille | Drum Teacher

Alain began playing drums by himself at age thirteen by listening to pop and rock bands and two years after, he began studying classical percussions and jazz drumming at the conservatory in Nantes.

At age eighteen, he graduated from the conservatory and started to teach drums and classical percussions in several music schools near Nantes.

After 10 years at the conservatory, and numerous meetings with fantastic drummers and drum teachers, Alain moved to Paris to study some new techniques (Free Stroke / Moeller) and taught at The Groove Academy Paris for 7 years.

Alain is teaching drums at the Kulturskole in Tønsberg and Øvingshotellet studio in Oslo.
