Oscar - New Milton - Drum

About the lesson

Hi There! I've been playing drums for near enough my whole life. I love drums, I love drumming, I love music! I'd love to pass on my enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to you, so get in touch.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Drum Kit. Snare Drum. Percussion Workshops.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BTech National Diploma in Popular Music.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £15 for a half hour lesson or £25 for an hour if you come to me. I offer discounts for 'bulk-buying': pay for 10 lessons up front for £120 (£12 per 30 minute lesson) or £220 (£22 per 1 hour lesson)
If I come to you, then I add travel time & costs from £5 depending on distance.
For percussion workshops I tend to negotiate a price, factoring in things like number of participants, length of session, instruments required, etc. I currently have enough instruments to cater for groups of up to around 30 people.

- Where do you teach?

At my place in New Milton (in the New Forest, near Christchurch, Lymington and Bournemouth) or I can come to you. I also teach in schools. I can also travel any distance (within reason!) subject to costs.

- When are you available?

It would be easier to get in touch with me directly if you want to know my availability!

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages, all levels. My youngest student is currently 6 and my oldest is early 60s

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare you for taking grades (we can discuss options, as there are several). I can also help you prepare for GCSE/A-Level/BTech pieces.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Skype.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

If you want a drum tutor who knows how to take all the boring stuff, like rudiments and all that, and explode them all over the kit, then I'm the one you're after. Regardless of the style of music you want to end up playing, good solid technique is your foundation and launch pad. I was taught by an old school jazz drummer, but he didn't just teach me to play jazz... he taught me to play the drums with good techniques and good habits (kicking out the bad habits!) that set me up to play any style I wanted. This same principle, along with truck loads of passion for drumming, is what I have to offer.

About Oscar

- What kind of experience do you have?

30+ years playing experience. 20+ years performing / recording experience. 15+ years teaching experience.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I was originally self taught, which I thought was the only way to do it! I then bowed to my parents wishes and had lessons in my mid teens with a fantastic tutor called Roy Neal, who was an old time Big Band Jazz drummer from the post war era. I was reluctant to have lessons to start with, but I'm glad I did and I owe a lot to Roy (I hope he's still around so I can thank him one day!).

- Tell me about some of your current students.

One of my students is a 6 year old lad who struggles to reach both pedals at the same time! He's a lot of fun and just seems to get everything I throw at him. I very excited about the potential of this kid! Another of my students is a lady in her 30s, who decided to take the plunge and go after her life-long dream to play the drums and she's picking it up really well.
