About me

Tomáš Oplatek

I started drumming in 2005. After attending the first workshop, led by Janos Crecelius, I was completely absorbed by drumming, and soon after I started to play in the band TiDiTaDe. Here I also learned to play other African instruments such as the balafon and krin.

My other teachers include Thomas Guei (Ivory Coast), with whom I did a month-long workshop directly in Ivory Coast. I also played with him several times in performances during his visit to the Czech Republic.

I am currently a member of the band Barati Squad and I play live accompaniment for African dance courses led by Simona Prokůpková and Tereza Pospěchová.

I have also been actively playing the piano all my life.

“Tom has been teaching me to play the drums for seven years. I appreciate his teacher empathy - he is always able to explain technique and rhythms to me so that I understand, remember and play correctly. I enjoy his lessons, they are lively and varied.”

“Highly recommended - Tomas is a great teacher!”
“The drumming course with Tom has definitely become my favourite hobby in my entire life so far. And I took a lot of classes in my youth😊 Tomáš is extremely kind and patient, he teaches with humour and thoroughness. He is a very talented, brilliant, and incredibly lively drummer himself. My only sincere regret is that it took me so long to discover Tomas and to come to drum with him."
