Chiara Cotugno on SoundBetter

My name is Chiara Cotugno and I'm a professional drummer. I'm a session and recording drummer, but also a drum teacher and live performer. I also run a YouTube channel with over than 50k subscribers and 10 millions views on which I post drum covers, improvisations and solos.

I'm available for recordings of every genre. I have my own studio.

I love to find the best sound and groove for each song, I don't overplay but always try to respect the original idea and mood of the song.

I've studied with several teachers, but also I got a Diploma from the Lizard Academy and I got a 3-year degree in Jazz Music from the Conservatory with the maximum score.

I've been playing live with bands for 15 years, and I've recorded several songs and albums.

I record in high quality, but if you cannot afford an high quality recording, I can make you a better price but still a good recording quality.

To get an idea of how I play and record, you can check my Youtube channel:

  1. Review by Christopher Byron

    If anything, the 2nd project with Chiara was even better than the first! I won't hesitate to call on her again in the future when I need drum tracks. Sound quality is excellent and her feel for the performance is amazing. Top Pro!

  2. Review by Christopher Byron

    What a pro! Chiara made getting great drum tracks easy. Communication was awesome and so helpful. Really “got” where we were going with the song, and brought the whole thing up a notch. Looking forward to having her help on more projects!
