Drum Tutor available for home visits in South Wales. Very experienced, all ages and abilities covered

Methodology

I specialise in establishing enthusiasm for the instrument and good technique in absolute beginners (especially youngsters), taking intermediate players to the next level and helping more mature, advanced students broaden their horizons and step outside their comfort zones. I cover all elements of drum music theory, reading drum notation, history of the instrument, physical set-up of the kit (including tuning), a wide variety of playing styles and offer the opportunity for students to attain accredited, globally-recognised qualifications through the Rockschool exam syllabus.

Lessons often stretch out longer than 60 minutes at no extra cost - I'm far more interested in student development than clock-watching. Included in the lesson fee is continued maintenance of students' drum kits (cleaning, tuning etc.). Mutual trust is essential in developing successful tutor/student relationships and I will always go above and beyond to ensure this happens.

Background

I'm a professional drum tutor, have recently relocated to Pontyclun and am looking for new students in the South Wales area. I have 13 years experience as a full-time tutor and a 100% student pass rate for Rockschool examinations from entry-level to Grade 8 (211 successful entrants and counting). I'm currently looking for students with their own kits for home visits (in my experience, students are more comfortable learning on their own kits and make quicker progress doing so) and am willing to travel considerable distances for committed learners.

I have 30 years' experience of all aspects of being a working drummer (original composition, learning covers, live performance, studio recording, writing and overdubbing percussion parts) and can help students grow in all these areas. I still write, perform and record with several bands so my knowledge is continually expanding and always up to date. I have a very wide range of teaching material built up over many years that is also continually being improved and updated.
