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.

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 person, I always relate myself in both a personal and professional manner with people of any age range. As a tutor, I work towards specific objectives, in the short, medium and long-term. I have imagination, I can evaluate situations, especially while teaching, from different angles and points of view; I always get satisfaction and results.
I always aim to teach fun and engaging lessons that balance technical aspects of drumming and drum theory. I have found that motivating and inspiring students to practice regularly is essential to their learning and development. I have also found it is particularly effective to have parents involved in making sure their children meet the practice goals that are set.
Rather than teach a method, or a style, I teach you how to take control of your instrument, discover what you are capable of, and help you train using solid techniques that you can apply to your performance skills in whichever area(s) you desire to pursue.
My methodology will differ depending on the student and will be tailored to suit their needs. I will teach the fundamentals, but let the student lead the steps in their direction, providing relevant materials and action plans for their goals.
My current students range from 6 years old to 66 years old! Whatever the age, there is always a starting point, be it basic rhythm, games, or sensory work, moving to more traditional Drumming and Percussion practices. I am experienced in teaching one to one, group, and whole class lessons using a number of different methods and teaching techniques.
When teaching drums, I appreciate the need for individual learning methods, as no two people learn the same way. I am a very patient and practical teacher. I believe that mistakes are just a natural part of the learning process.
I excel in the construction of effective and individually tailored lesson planning involving a variety of different working assignments tailored to the individual abilities of each student focussing closely but not limited to: Rhythm Flair Playing in a band environment Coordination Rudimentary Discipline Sight Reading Tempo Dynamics Timbre I ensure that each student is fully...

I am able to teach lessons for beginners to advanced! My lessons cover styles, reading and technique. I will cover rudiments, and applying them to the kit. Reading, wether the student would like to learn to read or wants to start applying their reading to musical situations and styles.

Hello I am Henry. I'm 18 and based in Guildford, I am studying at the Academy of Contemporary music doing a music degree in Drumming. I have played drums since I was about 10 years old and know many different styles/genres. ranging from Metal/Rock to Country, folk and reggae.
I am an experienced teacher and I tailor lessons to suit individual needs. I am happy to teach pupils from the age of five upwards, and any ability level from complete beginner to experienced professionals looking to learn specific skills.
My teaching method is letting the student show me what they can do themselves and then taking what needs to be improved and working on it so it becomes a solid, tight piece of percussive work. This comes along side with showing the student how to make the beat/grove more interesting for listeners too.
Just starting to play? From your very first lesson you’ll be playing grooves and fills on a full drum kit and building your abilities through the lessons at your own pace along to the music that you like to listen to and aspire to play. We’ll make sure that you’re developing good habits and techniques from day one.

My teaching method really depends on the age, ability and goals of the student. It will be tailored towards you. Students who are aiming high will be pushed and challenged to help them achieve whereas youngsters and casual drummers will be taught the fundamentals of drumming and be given a solid foundation to be able to improve and develop on their own.

Drum Tutor 15 years experience teaching beginner/intermediate lessons in the Bournemouth and Poole area - come to you. 30 years old male tutor has taught across all ages mainly at beginner level to get started into drumming. Cover basic theory reading music grades etc.
I am a self taught musician currently in my first year of college and wish to pass on my knowledge to others. I believe in creativity, for example; I would give the student a simple drum beat and ask them to improvise to their liking. Musicians should not be taught to follow others, they should find themselves.
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.
I teach all levels from beginner to advanced! If the student wants to learn graded musical pieces or even just play for fun my goal is to develop a fun and exciting experience for each and every student I have been playing the drums for seven years and I am very passionate about music and teaching.
I aim to create a relaxed and comfortable environment in which to teach, I find this helps the student focus on the material covered each lesson. I also make video lessons expanding on topics to give eager students more material to practice. Based in Dorking, I am available for tuition to drummers of all ages ranging from beginner to advanced.
My approach towards the drums is relaxed, fun and flexible as to what each pupils wants to get out of the drums - whether that be graded exams, learning their favourite songs or starting a career in the music industry.
Fun and stress free learning of the kit, as it’s a fun instrument Lessons will consist of technique and learning of pieces from pre grade and looking to improve up the grades, with practice guidance given at the end to maximise improvement.
I am a sixth form student who has been drumming for years, starting to teach other students methods of drumming and how to enjoy playing the drums. I prefer to let the student do all the drumming while I give advice.
I tutor from beginner to professional level and from primary to third level institutions. My classes are methodical and provide adequate knowledge to produce a well rounded musician with sufficient musical understanding and appreciation. I believe every person has the ability to achieve a musical foundation and it is my function to lead you on that journey.
