Drum Tutor in Headingley offering one to one lessons from beginner to advanced level

Methodology

The way I plan lessons for each student is different and based on what their individual needs and goals are. For a large part of my musical education I was taught by following the graded syllabuses, which I feel covers many essential aspects of playing the drums and provides a good sense of direction for learning to be a rounded and confident player. I normally recommend having a look at the graded syllabuses but there are some who prefer a less technical and more casual approach to learning the drums.

Background

I am a 23 year old Leeds College of Music Graduate. Having lived abroad for much of my life, I am naturally adaptable to new situations, cultures, environments and people; I have lived in France, Hong Kong and Belgium as well as the UK.
I've been taught how to play the drums by at least ten different professionals who have all had a significant impact on my outlook to playing the drums. Because of this I also have a lot of first hand experience with different teaching styles and so I know what kind of lesson keeps people interested and engaged.

I have experience with both the Trinity Guildhall and the Rock School syllabuses and passed my Grade 8 exam with distinction at the age of 16. In addition to this I studied both Music and Music Technology at GCSE and A levels, therefore I have a good knowledge of music theory.

I currently play with a number of bands in Leeds, one of which is a professional function/wedding band which I am the manager of. I also have a lot of performance experience having played with many ensembles in the past such as wedding bands, dance bands, jazz band, big band, worship group and choirs to name a few.

Skills

Languages
French: Second language English: First Language


Time keeping - I always go out of my way to be punctual and efficient as my reputation and meeting the expectations of others are important to me.

Adaptability - I have learned to get used to constant new environments after spending so much time moving around the world and leaving what I am used to behind.
My time at Wisseloord Studios showed me how to work under pressure and I am certain that I am capable of managing under such conditions.

Communication - As a musician this is one of the most important skills for me to have. Through working with many bands and different people, both my
communication and my team working skills have developed immensely over the past few years. The volunteering work at St Wilfrid’s Centre taught me a lot about forming good relationships with different types of people.
