I would say that my approach promotes creativity more than robotically learning an instrument. I'll show you all sorts of different concepts and some examples on how you can apply them in a musical way but after that it's up to you to come up with the ideas.
I will also teach you how to listen to music in a way that will allow you to be able deconstruct songs so that you are able to figure out the correct parts.
I highly promote DIY attitudes to music and am only there to give guidance with some knowledge. But what I would really love to hear is that you're getting bands together and applying all the things I'm teaching you into real world scenarios.
I have been playing drums since I was 11 years of age and from that age I have played in many different environments. As soon as I started learning I wanted to get real word experience so I started playing drums in a church band. As I got older I started searching for other like-minded individuals and formed bands with them. At 14 I was gigging regularly around music venues in Glasgow. 16, I moved onto recording some DIY music with my friends in their spare room. At 18 I went to Boston for 5 weeks to study at Berklee College of Music as part of a summer course they put on. Now, 19, I'm currently studying Professional Drums at BIMM London as well as being in multiple bands; one of them recently just finished of a UK tour.
Very talented young man who has the patience of a saint! Would certainly recommend Matt for tutoring.
