Expert Drum Tuition, Northants
 

Looking for a drum teacher?

Thinking about learning drumming as a hobby?

Thinking about music as a career?

Thinking about adding to your skills-set as a music teacher?

Thinking about working towards musical qualifications such as your grades or GCSEs?

Thinking about improving your drumming? Your reading? Your sight reading?

Stuck on a plateau and don't know how to take your drumming to the next level?

Having problems with certain aspects of your drumming?

Whatever you are thinking about, I can help you to get the most from your drumming.

I have more than 30 years experience as a musician and 30 years experience as a professional drum teacher and  therefore guarantee you the following  (subject to your own goals):

 

My Guarantee to You
 

Within 2 hours, you will be reading a drum score and playing the whole drum kit.

You will be having fun.

You will be ecercising your body and mind through drumming.

You will be adding to your existing drumming skills and developing new ones.

You will be developing as a drummer, a musician and as a person.

You will be working towards real drumming qualifications.

You will be improving as a drummer, a reader and a sight reader.

Your drumming will quickly advance to new heights.

You will wonder why you struggled with previous drum teachers!

 

Unique Methods, Proven Results
 

I know what works and what doesn't work. Depending on your own unique learning style, your level of experience and your own goals, I will tailor each and every drum lesson to ensure you make measurable progress, week by week, lesson by lesson.

Many of the teaching methods I employ can't be bought in a book (just yet!) However, I am working on this.

I have personally developed and tested many of the drum methods and techniques I use. These techniques include those relating to relaxation, performance anxiety, focus and preparation, co-ordination, ergonomics, rhythmic vocabulary, pattern development and recognition, independence, interdependence, developing muscle memory, solo techniques, improvisational techniques, musicality and many other areas.

Unlike many local "teachers", I do not teach from a text book, which you are forced to buy and then pay a "teacher" to read to you each week.

Instead, I teach from many years of experience, sometimes employing exercises from drum books, but often simply fine tuning your drumming, or your attitudes towards your drumming. As a qualified and experienced trainer, I am also able to tailor your learning experience to suit your particular learning style.

I have many former students who are playing professionally or semi-professionally. A few are also teaching. One is playing on film scores in LA. Another, (now 13 years old) achieved his Grade 3 Rockschool in just 6 months (from total beginner) and currently plays at Grade 6 standard. Definitely one to watch in future years!

Remember, you learn a lot more from drumming than just drumming!

 

Legal Stuff - Terms and Conditions
 

Drum lessons are charged at £15 per hour (upto age 16) and £20 per hour (age 16+). Special rates for the unemployed and those on benefits. Cash only, please.

Lessons available weekdays, including evenings and Saturday mornings. Any cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be billed. If you can't make your next drum lesson, simply tell me! However, if you are unreliable, please don't waste my time or your money.

I operate a strict no drugs, no alcohol policy. However, tea, coffee and soft drinks are available free of charge - just ask.

I am subjest of an enhanced CRB check since I work with vulnerable young people. However, I would insist that students under the age of 12 are accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration of drum lessons. Of course, as a parent or guardian you are more than welcome to accompany an older child.
