Our Story

Andrea Gatti - Afro-Cuban Percussion Educator

Hi, welcome to Drum Arts. My name is Andrea Gatti and I’m the founder of Drum Arts.

We do this by offering quality training in a professional environment. We offer drums and percussion lessons, or classes. So whether you are starting your journey, or you’ve been studying for many years, we are happy to work with you in this musical journey.

Quality Training

Student at Drum Arts - drumartstn

At Drum Arts, we care about the quality of our teaching. The program is developed to cover the most important study areas, laying a solid foundation for the growth of our students.

In a world where everyone teaches online, we believe in investing personally in our students. The teacher will always be present in class.


Our programs are developed around four main areas of study:

  • Reading and interpretation

  • Technique

  • Coordination

  • Musical languages

A good study method makes the difference. We train our students to become musical and have confidence and understanding of what they are playing by applying these three steps:

  1. Sing the melody - to develop the musicality

  2. Play the melody and sing it - to master the technique

  3. Count out loud and play the melody - to develop the inner click

Professional Environment

Drum Arts cares about creating a professional environment. Our students have access to professional equipment and study material.

  • Professional Equipment

  • PA System in class

  • Drum Arts binder

  • Professional study material

  • Study Tracks

About The Teacher

Hi, my name is Andrea Gatti. I will be your drum/percussion teacher and I look forward to getting to know you and encouraging you in your drumming.

Before encountering the Lord, I played professionally as a musician in Italy. Since then I have used my gifts and talents to play for God in the mission field in organizations such as YWAM (Youth With a Mission) and the HOP (House of Prayer). My journey started as a percussionist after my graduation from CPM (Center of Professional Music) of Milan. Following my conversion, I became a drummer and focused on studying and playing many music styles and genres with teachers such as Walter Calloni and Giorgio Di Tullio. Even today, I still study since I believe our journey as a student never ends. In 2022 I started Drum Arts in Dyersburg, TN.

I love music, people, and good food, but mostly I love Jesus and His Kingdom. He is my source of inspiration.
