Hi! I am Alberto Christodoulou drummer and percussionist from London. I am always open for new projects ideas and risks!

Alberto started to develop his music education in a music school of Limassol associated with Trinity College London. There he had the chance to developed his technique on drums. He studied for six years on the technique methods of Dante Agostini books, Syncopation and Stick Control. Also he parcticed many techniques such as Linear, Ostinato, 4&5 co-rdination and ghost notes. He was accepted from Middlesex University of London to study 'BA Music Performance' in order to build his knowledge on Classical music and in music in general. Alberto has co-ordinated with a choreographer to compose and play the drums at Blueprint (East London Dance). Alberto is also a composer and arranger of the Drum set and percussion music . He also produces music for students to play along in a wide range of styles from Jazz to Rock. Since 2013 he is co-ordinated with the 'imprint dancES company' to compose original pieces for choreographies. In March 2015 he released his debut album 'T.I.M.E.' with his own perspectives. Album contains three original compositions which the two of them been performed by the 'imprint dancES company' in Thessaloniki music hall in May. Apart from his own music he played the drums from 2013 to 2015 for the English Punk Rock band 'Sky Keepers' and together they had gigs in London.
