Jack Grossman is a professional musician, drummer, and educator with over fourteen years of experience in music performance, recording, writing, and teaching. Based in the South of England, Jack has seen a full and diverse career so far in his twenty-five years.
In 2008, Jack’s early ambitions were fuelled and quickly led to him playing with other musicians, networking at an early age, and contributing to other artists’ work both in the studio and live.
At eight-teen, Jack received High Distinction in his studies at The Academy of Contemporary Music, Guildford, and left with Higher Qualifications in Music Performance, Songwriting, Music Theory, and Music Culture. As well as qualifications in Production and Music Business.
Since his playing began, Jack has had in-depth, comprehensive education and real-world experience playing with a variety of musicians through a wide range of genres including – Contemporary and Classic Rock, Pop, Soul, Funk, R’N’B, Blues and World Music.
After attaining his qualifications, Jack continued playing up and down the U.K with multiple acts and other contemporary artists. This would lead to educating aspiring drummers, as well as founding and working with his current original band Dali, who has been featured as one of KERRANG! Radio’s Fresh Blood Top Picks in 2020 and have been noted as ‘ones to watch by multiple music and entertainment publications.
Whether performing on stage, recording in professional and his home studios, or teaching the next generation of drummers, Jack Grossman is a consistent, passionate, and talented musician who always delivers his work with professionalism and heart.
My approach to teaching has always been professional, fun, and easy-going. I believe it is of the utmost importance to allow the student to learn and develop their skills in order for them to be able to express themselves freely through drumming.
My main goal with my students (particularly novices) is to help them gain a full and solid foundation of the fundamentals of drumming which will only help them grow and expand their knowledge as their progress develops.
To the more intermediate and advanced students – my approach would be more personalized from the off-set. We would really try and get to grips with where the student is at and where they want to be and base their tuition around that using appropriate study and practice. One thing is for sure, no matter what the level of student or current ability – the student will always be able to progress at their own pace, there is no time limit to certain concepts or subjects and we will make sure you understand and learn the best of your ability at all times!
I believe in freedom of expression and I feel my job and duty as a tutor is to provide my students with the knowledge and tools for them to express themselves freely not only as drummers but as musicians. We all have a voice, we can all be heard!
