Ben - Luton£46
Trusted teacher: The benefits of learning an instrument are huge. It boosts your memory, abstract reasoning skills, creativity, confidence, patience and relieves stress. Most importantly it is fun. I teach the drum kit, piano, theory, composition and transcription. I love sharing my passion with my students, supporting and empowering them to become the best they can be. I’m big on inspiring my students to continue progressing between lessons, independently, focussing on technical ability, stylistic understanding and the development of their own musical voice. If you choose to take graded examinations, I have a strong track record of getting students high marks. I’m an examiner myself, so I know exactly how to prepare you. Grades 6-8 practical / theory give you UCAS points equivalent to A levels, and grades 5-6 are regarded as equivalent to GCSE level. It’s a great way to stand out when applying to schools and universities. I teach children and adults 1-to-1 online, from my home in Luton or at students’ homes nearby. Students coming to me benefit from access to industry standard equipment and software - invaluable experience for any aspiring, modern musician. I hold an Advanced DBS Certificate and have many testimonials and references (upon request).

My goal is to help you understand what you want to achieve with the instrument, and help you to do it in the best way. We will customize the lesson plan according to your personal needs and goals. The method I follow allows you to play immediately without neglecting the fundamental aspects of the study of drums. We will approach the topics gradually, to allow you to develop the tools to improve and develop your expressive freedom progressively. I think that the lessons should be a relaxing and fun moment but also a learning experience. I use imagination and evaluate situations from different angles and points of view to achieve great efficiency, good coexistence, and mutual respect; that's why my lessons are tailored to students individually, to make sure you'll get the most out of our time together.

If you have been looking to pick up a pair of drumsticks for the first time ever, or if you used to play the drums and feel like getting back to it, or even if you feel like you've hit a plateau on your drumming and are not sure how to take it to the next level, I want to help you. I am passionate about music and drums and I am also very excited to pass on the knowledge I've acquired over all these years. As I currently have the chance to take on a few more students, I am happy to teach people of all ages and levels, as I'd love to inspire more people to play music, be it as a dream or just a hobby. My lessons are light and fun, but educative and will help you reach your goals. The topics I cover range between learning songs, rudiments, coordination, reading, even music theory if you'd like, and anything else you have in mind (the philosophy behind creativity and drumming is definitely on the table!). If you have any questions, don't hesitate in asking. I will get back to you as soon as possible! Nuno.
As a rare combination of both Drummer and Lyricist (they don't usually trust the drummer to do the fancy stuff!) I have been working on both crafts for nearly 20 years. At 24 years old, it's safe to say I have spent my life working on songwriting and performing. I would love to be able to help others, who like myself, have gone through writer's block and 'blips' in songwriting where you just can't find a motive. I am also looking to help aspiring drummer's get to grips with the basic techniques and hone in your unique style to get started behind the kit!
