The content of my lessons is very flexible dependant on the level of the student. For beginners, I would be happy to go through the basics and build a strong foundation upon which we can develop more advanced skills and techniques. For those with experience drumming, I am happy to work more intricately with them on finding a groove and playing pieces to their full potential. I am also equipped to train students specifically towards graded exams across any exam board, and help them in a holistic sense to achieve their absolute potential in these exams.
I'm an undergraduate student at the University of Birmingham from London, who has been drumming since the age of 3. I've been professionally trained for 12 years, and have received my Grade 8 qualification on the drums. I've also played in various bands and done (semi-professional) studio recording sessions.
I have worked alongside Jack teaching drama to children of varying ages and abilities, including peers. He is a natural communicator - patient, kind and utterly enamoured with all aspects of theatre. Drawing on a wealth of personal experience, having acted in and directed school and amateur productions for most of his life, Jack is always eager to share the knowledge and skills he has accumulated. A rare blend of excellent teaching abilities, talent and passion!
Jack and I were friends at school and he informally tutored me for a good three years. At the end of those three years he tutored me in drama while I was the main character in a play. In the end his tutoring took me to the level where I won the "best actor" award for playing the main character in a competition between 6 plays.
Jack has a patient, kind style of tutoring, and has done almost every role in theatre, including acting, directing, writing, costume design, and set design. He has a great talent of breaking down scenes and lines to their essences.
Despite being funny and personable, I've never seen Jack waste time in getting into what needs to be done for a particular play, scene, character, or essay.
There are normally two types of tutors - those that know the material and the syllabus well, and those that actually understand the purpose behind the syllabus. Jack manages to blend these two together to create the best of both worlds.
I cannot recommend Jack enough as a teacher. He is incredibly engaging, motivational and patient and really wants his students to succeed. He directed me in a play last year and I really felt I improved as an actor under his direction. Not to mention he is a lot of fun!
