I've been lucky enough to have had two fantastic drum teachers who differed in approach, method, and focus. One focused a lot on fundamental drumming techniques and how to deploy them around the drum kit, and the other focused on the musical application of said techniques within a performance setting. I personally believe you can't have one without the other.
I offer flexible 1:1 tuition that balances the two. Every student will set their own goals and the personalised lesson plan I will make for each individual will set out to achieve those goals as quickly and as effectively as possible.
If I were to do just that though, it would be very boring. I wouldn't have continued with my drum lessons if I didn't enjoy them, so I aim to make every lesson fun and enjoyable so the passion for drumming never fades. My aim is to create a positive learning environment so every student can excel at their strengths.
Whether you want to work towards a RockSchool or Trinity Guildhall graded exam, improve on a particular aspect of your drumming, or start playing the drums from scratch, I'll make sure to carve a path that will improve your ability at a speed that suits you.
