Rory - Walkley - Jazz Improvisation

Methodology

Hello! My name is Rory Hillman, I teach drum kit, drums and percussion in sunny Sheffield town.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I offer drum kit tuition for all levels of ability in a wide range of musical styles, from Rock/ Metal, through Funk, Jazz, Reggae/Ska, to Jungle/Dnb, Latin, Afrobeat, Blues and most things in between. I can help you with your technique, rudiments, sight reading, theory, playing to click, playing with others, chops, fills, grooves, and all things beaty and meaty, to improve all aspects of your playing.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have no formal qualifications, I've never found I've needed them.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £20 per hour or £12 per half hour. The first lesson is half-price.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from a well-equipped studio in Sheffield city centre, I also teach occasionally from my home in S8.

- When are you available?

Contact me for availability.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages from 5 years upwards.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Any you see fit!

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Have a look at my website for more details: (concealed information)

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I've been working as a genre-disregarding beat maker for over a decade. Drums have taken me all over Europe and Britain to such prestigious stages as the Royal Albert Hall, Innsbruck Hafen, Bratislava PKO, Dublin Temple Bar Music Centre, Vienna Gasometer, Camden's Koko and many more.
I've appeared on numerous recordings with a wide variety of musicians and has lent my talents to a disparate yet super-talented selection of bands (see website for examples). I've been teaching for over 2 years now.

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

I do indeed hold a recent Enhanced Disclosure CRB check
