About Giulio

Session drummer with dedication and ability to work independently and collaboratively. Hardworking, versatile and committed.

Hi, My name is Giulio Bardi, I'm an Italian session drummer. I study music since the age of 9; I started with guitar and drums, also playing percussions in a classical youth orchestra called "OfficinaMusiké" as well as singing for three years in a classical school choir. I played drums and percussions in the musical “Little Shop of Horrors” on stage at “Teatro Nuovo,” a theatre in Turin. With a percussion ensemble, I participated in and won the 2011 annual edition of "Turin Live Festival," a cultural, artistic event for young and promising artists, in the percussionists' section. In 2014 I played drums in the orchestra that performed the song "Bella Ciao" in memory of the fascist massacre of 18 December 1922, in “Piazza XVIII Dicembre” in Turin. I was involved with different projects and gigged quite frequently in Turin. I've performed regular freelance work in London in differente venues, such as: The North London Tavern, Nightclub Kolis, Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Nambucca, The Spice Of Life, Numbersixbar, St James Church (with Sofar London), The Monarch, The New Cross Inn and others. I Have graduated with First class from ICMP where I've studied with professional drums tutor such as Gabor Dornyei, Fergus Gerrand, Darren Ashford, Richard Patterson and Jon Harris, with formation in Music Performance, Music Education, Music Technology, Music Business, Arranging & Composing. I have experience with softwares like Logic Pro and Sibelius, can easily sight read charts and have BVs and live arrangement experiences. I am available for sessions, functions, tour, cruises, live and recorded music.

From customers:

Laurelight A, 1 year ago

"Giulio and I had several collaborations in the past 3 years in London. We performed live in different venues around the city varying from minimal acoustic set to live band performances. A trusted collaborator of mine, he’s experienced in teaching drums practice and music theory as well as skilled in live arrangements as session player. Never late to our sessions, he is reliable and always committed to reach his goal. I highly recommend his experience as a musician for many projects."

Flavia (, 1 year ago

"I hired Giulio as a session musician for one of my recordings. He came highly recommended and was very professional throughout the entire process. Giulio always had constructive ideas and an ear for details. He even went out of his way to help complete my project when covid-19 caused huge complications regarding the recording process. To this day I am entirely satisfied with his work and would love to collaborate again in the future."
