I am a drummer and tutor and have been playing for 20 years and tutoring for 8-10 years. In 2013 I graduated with a Bachelor of Contemporary Music. I have always loved tutoring, it never feels like work to me. The moments when students ‘click’ with something they have been working really hard towards is worth all the work they put in.
I have been playing in bands since I was 11, performance is what I personally love the most about drumming. Using what I have learnt, applying it, and along with the band, being able to bring the whole crowd on a journey is something really special.
My drum tutor was the most important teacher in my life when I was a teenager, he showed me how and why to have fun with drums, his passion for his instrument inspired me to want to be the same and I would love if I could do the same for any student.
Students will learn rudiments, theory, groove(s), fills, performance, rhythm, songs, stick and pedal techniques and anything else that might be appropriate to their ability or desire.
The home studio where lessons are held is relatively spacious with two drum kits setup so that I can demonstrate a new idea or show students things they might struggling with etc. Drums are a kinaesthetic instrument using all limbs and I believe having two kits setup is imperative to fast and imitative learning.
