DANTE AGOSTINI ROMA drum school, created by Rudy Tavars, is based on the methods developed by Dante Agostini, an Italian drummer, born in Mercatello (PU) in 1921.

The method provides different types of exercises on the instrument in order to reach a high level of confidence with the instrument. These activities range from technique and the study of historical songs for drumming, up to different styles of modern music, passing through the jazz and latin influences that over time settled in the culture of the drums.

Each Agostini course is led directly by the Centre Agostini Paris, where Dante began to spread his method and which, after his passing, is directed by J.F. Juskowiak. Io order to respect the characteristics of the Parisian school, the courses are divided into several levels, from the introduction to the battery, to the semi-professional and professional class, up to the Agostini Diploma.
