My Experience as a Teacher

I have played and taught the drums for many years. In this time I have studied and performed in groups from a wide range of styles and genres. This has allowed me to develop well rounded musical knowledge and to be fluent at playing in various musical settings. I have worked with students of all different ages and skill levels, so I am happy when working with any student. Even if you're looking to buy your first drum kit and just looking for some advice I'm always happy to help.

More About My Lessons

My lessons will cover all of the essential skills that you need to be a good drummer. This will cover things like knowing how to play in time and understanding rhythm and subdivisions. From there we can build upon those basics to develop more advanced techniques such as intricate footwork, paradiddles and other rudiments, snare rolls, flams, blast beat and many more.

Not only do a focus heavily on you practical skills and playing techniques but I will also include music theory in our lessons. Helping you explore and understand the behind the scenes of music better. This is things like understanding time signatures, arrangement, composition, tempos etc.
