I offer drum lessons at all skill levels and within all playing styles. To me teaching is all about communication and therefore I always identify and work from the individual student and his or her ambitions and skill level. I never work from any preconceived plans or processes.
I have worked as a drum teacher for many years doing both private lessons as well as operating from music schools and conservatories.
The lessons are held using two drum kits. This way you will try everything out and learn by doing. This makes it much easier for you to remember everything when practicing at home.
I offer a free 30-minute trial lesson. Here we will be discussing where you want to take your drumming – both with regard to style and ambitions etc. – and what we can do to make you achieve your goals. This way you will also be able to assess if my lessons are right for you.
In my lessons I work with concepts, such as:
- Grooves (linear/non-linear)
- Ghost notes
- Sight reading
- Hand technique (traditional/matched)
- Foot technique
- Double pedal
- Odd meters
- Polyrythmic patterns
- Gospel chops
- And many other things
