Back to Preludes tutors

Oli Cocup

Oli has been with Preludes Music for the last few years, starting with teaching group djembe with Sara and then moving on to drum kit tuition with small groups and one on one classes. Oli believes that the power of music can bring people together and have a positive effect on life, especially if the memories of it are fond from childhood. 

Oli is a professional drummer who has been playing the kit for 20 years. He has toured the UK and Europe with multiple bands, and played some of the UK’s stickiest stages, mostly playing with noisy rock bands. He has been teaching for the past decade, getting young people through their grades, and teaching long term drummers better technique. Oli plays with multiple bands, all of which keep him very busy working alongside Bristol’s finest educators!

Oli enjoys a walk in the woods, foraging for mushrooms. He also likes hot wheels.
