Miguel Tavares

Miguel Tavares

Miguel Tavares is a portuguese drummer with only 19 years old. He started playing drums with 13 years old, but he already had classes with many and excellent teachers.
His first drum teacher was João Figueiredo and it was through him that Miguel realized he wanted to be a professional drummer. After about 1 year and a half, he started to have lessons with a New York Collective's founding member, Michael Lauren! In the past year he concluded the 2nd level of jazz performance in the school of Hot Club Portugal and he's now living in London, where he will take the 3 years undergraduate degree in "Popular Music Performance" on the ICMP (The Institute Of Contemporary Music Performance).
Despite of the short career, Miguel has already played almost 100 gigs in total, and had different bands in various music genres: rock (originals and covers), jazz, electronic, jazz-fusion and probably a few more others!"
He's now a endorsee of Soultone Cymbals and Rich Sticks.
