My teaching is entirely based on the student, their ability level and how much they want to achieve with drumming! I am patient and spend time on areas of weakness before moving on. I feel that it is important to grasp the fundamentals of drumming well as this information will be invaluable further down the line. I am able to teach written notation, but only if the student is ready and willing. Drumming is about having access to a wide range of musical skills, and this is what I try to focus on during my lessons.
I am a young, enthusiastic Drum teacher based in Birmingham. I began playing the drums in secondary school and with excellent drum tuition achieved my Grade 8 distinction not long after. I was lucky to be accepted onto the Birmingham Junior Conservatoire course aged 16 to study jazz with several world class musicians. This led to me moving to Leeds where I achieved a First Class honours degree. During this time, I have taught in several instances. Whilst in Leeds, I taught at Chapel FM, a newly refurbished arts space designed to provide music tuition to disadvantaged children. Here I taught teenagers both in group situations as well as one to one tuition on the drums. More recently I have taught at the North Leeds Music Centre. This teaching involved teaching children aged 3-7 basic percussion skills. At this centre I also taught group drum kit lessons to students aged 7-60 years old.
Perfect! Patient and informative. Enjoyed my first lesson can't wait for more.
A great first lesson with Dan! He is attentive and interested in improving his skills, which is more than you can ask for from a student. Looking forward to our future lessons!
