I'm a drummer who has spent time not only learning drums but sharing my knowledge to anyone who is keen to learn.
I work on a 10 lesson structure designed to reach your own personal goals.
Teaching methodology revolves strongly around cognitivist and behaviourist ideas.

Recently Graduated from Bmus (Hons) Popular Music Performance at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP) in Kilburn, specialising on the drums.
While studying at ICMP I have developed a wide and comprehensive understanding of genre conventions through studying with amazing tutors such as Richard Spaven, Gabor Dornyei, Fergus Gerrand (Madonna, Duran Duran, The Spice Girls) and Darren Ashford (The Drifters, Chaka Khan, Mamma Mia West End). The course showed me key aspects of performance, technique, arranging and composing, sight-reading and recording, allowing me to explore myself as an individual and musician. This education has allowed me to understand how to flourish in a creative and collaborative business environment. During this past year I have been taking an optional teaching module as I always find myself talking about drums and music and find teaching extremely fulfilling. The module covers many pedagogical theories such as how to incorporate behaviourism and cognitivism into lessons as well as exploring the different roles of teachers and how to break down concepts effectively and clearly. I have taught both face to face and online in a 1 to 1 format, with private students that I am currently teaching.
Examples of composing and playing can be found in my playing portfolio if requested, showcasing what kind of player I am.

Dan is a really good drummer and loves his craft ! I’m a piano player and he showed me proper techniques (German and French technique) how I prevent myself to injure myself being to tensed while playing. What I really appreciate was that he is really patient and knows exactly how to show beginners in a mixture between education and fun.
Dan is an extremely natural tutor who can communicate concepts and techniques very effectively making them easy to understand. He is one of the most passionate drummers I have ever met and I always leave his lessons feeling inspired and motivated.
Dan is a super talented drummer with a wealth of knowledge! He’s friendly, easy to get on with and good at advising how to improve drumming techniques etc.
