ANDY TURCO -Drummer- PURPOSE: Playing has always has to be about: sharing emotions, express feelings, have fun, being curious, pushing musicians boundaries.
My lessons are efficient and we learn a great amount in a short time. You will be able to listen, read music, play with correct technique and more. Trinity and Rockschool grades one to eight to diploma are offered.
As a drummer, tabla player and percussionist, flexibility is mandatory. It’s essential for teaching and learning too. Some students like to focus on exams and grading, others want to be able to play in bands, and a few just want to play the fastest double bass drum rolls in the world! No one wants an environment in which attention isn’t paid to the students likes and dislikes.
I'm a drum kit, percussion and tuned percussion teacher with 25 years experience in both private and state education. I have also worked as a peripatetic teacher for the local authority. I'm use to a wide age range (5-65 years), varied abilities and am adaptable to personal areas of study and styles of music.
My teaching is based on what the student wants to learn and be able to accomplish, whether that be working through grades or learning drum grooves to songs/tunes. However, every student will learn the importance of a good, strong and firm foundation to playing drums, and I will teach them that.
Students dictate the general direction and focus of practical exercises, selected from thematic area's like independence, inter-dependence, performance stamina, consistency, and along side become equipped with the digital skills needed to collaborate, record and produce professional sounding mixes using Reaper. I only have two standards. Good posture. Good timekeeping.
Creativity is, I believe, part of each individual; it just needs working out in different ways. I am qualified and capable of teaching all levels of drum kit (beginner-advanced) and beginner level guitar/ukelele.
Throughout his career Max has always been an educator and offers private tuition. Max aims to motivate and inspire his students, whilst teaching them the key skills to master the instrument. The bulk of Max's teaching experience is as Head of Drum Kit as DS School of Music in Monmouth, Wales, where he taught private 1:1 lessons, teaching over 800 lessons.
I personalise lessons to suit your exact needs so that you reach your goals efficiently whilst always having fun. I have a Roland TD-1K Electronic Drum Kit that I am able to quickly and easily set up at your premises to minimise disruption and help maximise your progress. I teach all age groups and capabilities.
I primarily teach private lessons, but am open to a group setting. My lessons are very tailored to an individual's needs: once I've assessed someone's playing I have a very good idea of what they need to do to become a well-rounded player.
Coaching you all the way from practice room to Stage Im flexible to help to customise the class "just for the student needs" . I do play other instruments and i will be coaching you how to perform along with percussion /guitar/bass / keyboard so while you learn we can build your own confidence to play with other musicians or jam with your friends from day one.
If the student is new to percussion, they will be learning the basics. If they have prior experience, we will take that experience and experience and expand on it. I feel that each student is different so different techniques will be used for each student.
I strongly believe in sharing my experience as a professional musician to my fellow music students with the strong essence of theory. I focus on clarity, tone, and technique than anything else at the beginning and then as per the student's interest I guide the student in the specific direction of performance and advanced concepts.
I offer developmental drum lessons for individuals based on the techniques and methods I learned from my own instructors through the years. I believe that the best way to learn the drums is to learn and practice a diversity of genres before deciding to specialize, and to build one's skill from a "bottom up" methodology.
After understanding what your current level of playing is (beginner, intermediate, advanced), I will figure out what your goals are, or help you establish them. Then we'll explore the best way to make your learning fun. As soon as possible, I would like to have you playing along to music so that you can enjoy the process and have FUN.
I start from the basics and than build up to more intermediate to advanced playing methods while keeping it fun and exciting .
I am of the strong belief that everyone learns differently, I think it is key to asses a students learning style and adapt immediately. I am very easy going and patient, but also persistent and encouraging (I love seeing progress and how happy it makes students).
I teach students a basic /advanced understanding of the drum set and build lessons on Rudiments and Technical Exercises to pop tunes and transcriptions of their favourite drummers. These classes are meant for people of all ages and skill levels.
