I teach up to Grade 3 drums or teach students that just want to learn for fun. When I teach I make sure that the lessons are enjoyable but especially tailored to how the student wants to learn, may that be through learning rhythms, learning songs or learning academic grades.
Hello! I'm Jake, a Music Production graduate from BIMM, Bristol. I am grade 8 in drums, grade 5 in music theory, and produce / DJ electronic music around the UK under the alias 'Pharaoh K.'
I grew up in London and have had lots of experience playing in many different types of bands over the years; Rock, Metal, Folk, Jazz, Reggae, Brass and more, along with being head drummer in the circus show 'Puffball' which was on at the Roundhouse in Camden, London for two months in April 2014. I am currently in two bands, one is an Indie Rock group called 'Hailey's Comet,' and the other is a chilled folk / rock group called 'Moonlight.' We both gig fairly regularly around Bristol.
I would love to pass on my knowledge, skill and enthusiasm for drums to anyone who wants to learn them! I teach up to Grade 3 level. If you would like to have a chat about potential lessons, please feel free to contact me!

Interests & Hobbies
I produce and DJ electronic music under the name ‘Pharaoh K.’ I DJ frequently all over the UK, and my tracks receive regular plays on Radio 1, Radio 1Xtra, KISS FM and Rinse FM. 'Seska' is another alias under which I create ambient and techno music. My debut track 'Ameko' has been used in some short films, including Adam Ibbotson's 'Pay & Display. In my spare time I also enjoy reading, painting miniatures and going to galleries.
Patrick Smith, Former Employer at 750MPH - (concealed information)
I worked with Jake as Hospitality Manager at an audio Post Production facility in London. He was an absolutely great member of staff, worked with great efficiency as well as having an excellent demeanour and superb social skills. His attitude was always positive, his time-keeping was first rate and he always delivered to the highest level. I have no doubt that Jake would excel in anything he turned his hand to.
Simon Hunt, Tutor at BIMM University - (concealed information)
Jake has just graduated from BIMM Bristol gaining a Ba (hons) Music Production. Jake is a highly motivated individual who I found to be personable and articulate. He is able to convey complex ideas to both his peers and his tutors. His practical work demonstrated his ability to absorb high level strategies from a production perspective and his final work reflected this.
