Jamie - Prestonpans - Jazz Improvisation

Methodology

I am a professional musician and educator who has recently moved to East Lothian to complete a PhD in music with Glasgow University. I want to continue helping young and/or inexperienced drummers develop genuine skills and experience.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Drums and percussion - Musical theory and composition

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I studied for my music degree at Leeds College of Music (First). I also hold a postgraduate diploma in music teaching from Reading University (Distinction) and a Masters degree in music (performance) from Salford University (Distinction).

- How much do you charge?

I charge £14.00 for half an hour.

- Where do you teach?

I have a dedicated drum studio based in Prestonpans, East Lothian.

- When are you available?

I have complete flexibility to accommodate the busy timetable of each student.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All levels and any age.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I am very experienced in preparing students for their GCSE and A Level practical examinations.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The most important thing is for the lessons to be enjoyable. The materials I use depend on individual needs, with students learning about the music they love while being introduced to other musical styles essential to drum kit.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

After music college I worked as a professional drummer for five years, both onboard cruiseships (Cunard and P&O) and for Blackpool Tower Circus. For the last seven years I have taught percussion in the Lake District area, at Queen Katherine School and Casterton School, while helping to run the Westmorland Youth Orchestra, Ghyllside School of Samba and Kirkby Steven Summer School. During that time I regularly played pop and jazz gigs and was hired for musicals and by choral societies.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I am CRB checked.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied with internationally renowned percussionist and teacher Dave Hassell for twelve years.
