London percussion teacher Molly Lopresti is one of the UK’s most exciting musicians. She has a wealth of teaching experience, having taught both privately and in schools across the capital.


In 2012 she reached the televised percussion final of the BBC Young Musician of The Year. Later in the same year she was both a speaker and performer at a TEDx conference at Warwick Arts Centre.


In 2017, Molly was the percussionist for the UK tour of In Their Own Words, a new verbatim opera. She also played for the show Wild, touring nationally and in America. In the same year Molly worked with Nonclassical and Dash Arts for Late at the Library: Sounds of a Revolution. This took place at the British Library and was curated by Gabriel Prokofiev.


Most recently Molly has performed with hugely successful bands such as Clean Bandit, Bring Me The Horizon and Alter Bridge. She has performed at venues including Wembley Arena and the prestigious Royal Albert Hall.


Molly teaches a variety of percussion instruments including tuned percussion (including marimba, vibrpahone and xylophone), pop percussion (including congas, shakers and hand percussion) and orchestral percussion (including snare drum, clash cymbals and bass drum).


Molly is based at her studio in Southgate. She enjoys passing her skills onto her students at beginner level, at an advanced stage and everyone in between!



Molly studied at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she received her BMus (Hons).
