I aim to make drumming as fun as it can possibly be. While I aim to teach basics and foundational skills, the end goal is making drumming an enjoyable long-term skill.
Equipment used will vary based on the lesson location (your/my location or use of a studio) and your experience. I aim to start with the basics to ensure you have a solid foundation before we move into more complex territory. This will cover set-up, reading music and eventually playing along to tracks.
Once the basics have been covered we can move into more complex (fun!) territory. I highly encourage you to bring songs/tracks you're keen to learn as we can break them down together and learn the piece more effectively than you would alone. If you desire to grades, this can be achieved, but naturally requires a greater emphasis on rudiments and wider musical knowledge.
I'm a multi-instrumentalist who has been playing drums and percussion for 12 years. I have played in various bands, orchestras, and ensembles, ranging from a church band to a symphony orchestra. Music has played a significant part of my life from a young age and calling it a passion would be an understatement. By teaching, I wish to pass on the enjoyment drumming gives me.
I am located in Dartford, but happy to travel into London and around Kent/Bromley.
If no notice is given within 48 hrs of the lesson starting time, then you will be charged for the lesson. This may be waived in emergency situations.
