Experienced Drum Tutor available in SW London. All ages, levels and topics catered for.

Methodology

My approach is very much directed by the student. I try to take the lessons in a direction that's inspiring but still challenging. I identify the problem areas in each individual and then tailor the content of the sessions with the goal of tackling them, taking the student down a logical path to progress. Please read my CV below for more information.

Background

I've been playing drums for 13 years. In the past 3 years I've taught over 25 students, with ages ranging from 5-50 and skill level from absolute beginner to more advanced players. I've seen consistent growth in all my students, as an avid practicer I believe I know what is needed to make progress, and as a tutor I want to share my knowledge the best I can.

Jordan's CV

BIMM London: October 2016 - June 2019
Currently Studying (2nd year) for a degree in Popular Music Performance.

The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance: September 2014 - June 2015
Achieved BTEC Level 5 Higher Diploma in Drum Performance.

Cedars Upper School: September 2010 - June 2013
GCSEs A: English Language, Maths, Music, Biology, Physics & PSR.

C: Spanish.

I have studied privately with Pete Cater (The Pete Cater Big Band) and JP Bouvet (Former Berklee student now working professionally in New York).

Experience:

Tuition: I have over 3 years of experience in private tuition ranging from students as young as 6 to as old as 50. The lessons (averaging 6 hours a week) were held in person at my own teaching facility for 2 years until I relocated for university. At which point I had to start again and begin travelling to the student’s houses. I have taught over 25 students in total, either in person or via Skype as for a while I had a few students in America/ Europe.
The lesson content varies from beginner to more advanced concepts - I tailor the lessons to the ability and interests of my students in order to make sure they’re challenging themselves without feeling overwhelmed.
Topics covered include; technique, timing, groove & feel, dynamics, developing freedom in different musical settings (co-ordination), reading, rudiments, learning songs in a variety of genres and how to practice.
I also have some experience running beginner workshops in primary schools, and teaching the Rockschool syllabus. Despite not teaching the grading system overly extensively I still feel confident in the material and my ability to teach it to a high level.

Live performances: I have played over 50 gigs up and down the country, 30 of which were in the space of the last year with my band at the time, Bad Nerves. The most notable show for me would be have to be Pitchfork Music festival in Paris. However, I also enjoyed playing Radio 1 DJ Phil Taggart’s Slacker event too, he was kind enough to compliment my drumming on air the day after the show.
The other 20 shows I have played were for various artists, functions & weddings covering a vast style of music from funk, modern jazz, rock/blues, pop, latin, punk and anywhere in between.

Recordings: My drumming with Bad Nerves has been streamed over 100,000 times on Spotify and I’ve also had the pleasure of being heard on BBC Radio One on a fair few occasions, as well as various other local stations throughout the UK and Europe. I have recorded an albums worth of material with Bad Nerves, most of which is yet to be released, and have also recorded in an array of styles with multiple other artists.

My philosophy:

As a musician I’m constantly teaching myself and striving for improvement and I believe this allows me to truly empathise with my students, I do not underestimate the struggle that learning a new skill can be.
I try to break things down to their simplest elements and build from there, guiding the student through one step at a time and tackling any potential problem areas they may have. I find this approach gives the student the tools and understanding to begin learning independently along side the lessons as well.
I’m always seeking new opportunities to share what I’ve learned from 13 years of commitment to my instrument, but also opportunities to learn something new myself - so that I can be a better musician, and a better teacher.
