Ian Matthews (KASABIAN) Masterclass

11 December, 2014

Ian Matthews has had a long career as a drummer. He got his first drum kit at the age of four and was taught drumming basics by his pro-drummer babysitter.  He started playing in his father’s band at the age of seven and had regular work at comedy and theatre productions throughout his teens, before finally seeing international success with Kasabian in 2004.

Ian will be visiting BIMM to pass on his wealth of experience to BIMM Bristol students.  He’ll discuss all things drumming and will provide an insight into life as a musician and as a member of one of the UK’s favourite rock bands.

Fresh from a huge Autumn tour and a momentous year, which has included headlining Glastonbury and releasing a number 1 album, we’re sure Ian has plenty to talk about.


Masterclasses are a regular part of the curriculum at BIMM, helping our students to connect with inspirational figures in the music industry to learn first-hand about real life experiences. You can watch videos from our Masterclasses on our YouTube.
