Professional Drum Teacher for All Ages (West London)

Hi there, my name's James. I've been playing since the age of 10 (12 years), during which I have played with a number of bands and taught many students, both privately and in schools.

I'm currently the touring drummer for London Calling UK, The Meatloaf Story, and Emma Stevens, and have partaken in festivals and shows around the UK and Europe.

I am able to teach whatever it is you're wanting to learn. Whether we're starting at the beginning, or learning a certain song, each lesson will be tailored specifically to you and your needs.

I can provide in-person 1 to 1 lesson either at my home studio or at a place of the student's choice (within reason), or via video chats like Zoom and Skype. I am DBS checked.

" UNIQUE " What if telling this story with music could be simple, fun and playful? Knowing how to share your inspiration, your feelings, your emotions, all of this through the guitar? This is what I offer you through my course: tune the instrument, work on your first chords and quickly play your first songs; read tablature, discover and master scales and modes to combine them with playing expressions such as hammer-ons, pull-offs, legato; develop your musical ear by exploring the depth of certain styles such as pop, rock, blues, jazz, bossa nova, funk just to name a few. All this will no longer have any secrets for you! Whether you have no experience or a few weeks of practice at hand, we will go step by step, taking into account your level, so that you evolve at your own pace and consistently. But don't forget the most important thing: have fun!

Musical theory or/and practice of flute and piano.
I'm an ex musical student and i come from a 8 years long training, of all the major branches of the subject. I can give an understanding of the musical score and consequential reading of musical pieces to play, after learning, with flute or keyboard(piano). The musical composition is to be divided in classical composition with counterpoints and all it's restricted rules, or the way it is conceived today, wich would mostly be understanding of the whole package of Music.. through experiencing the art of creation with software like sibelius, flstudio or reaper. if you have other needs in the field ask anytime

(Online) Mathematics Tutoring for High School Students
High School Math can be confusing for students. Often there is not enough time in school to repeat the content and practice enough, for the students to gain confidence and a routine in solving mathematical problems. With my help and guidance, any confusion will be cleared and we will practice problem solving until you are confident and understand the material. The lessons will be tailored to your needs and their structure depends highly on you: usually it is a mixture of repeating the content, solving exercises together, summarising important concepts and talking about exercises you tried yourself at home. The topics, content, pace and methods of learning will be adjusted to your needs, ensuring that you get the most out of my lessons. Besides the lessons, you will get "homework" to work on to strengthen your skills and independent working. Topics include, but are not limited to: -Linear Algebra -Calculus -Trigonometry -Geometry -Set Theory -Analysis If you have another topic in mind that you really need help with, just send me a message! Whether you need someone that explains the concepts to you or just someone to practice exercises with - I am sure I can help you. You have an exam soon and want to review the main topics? No problem! You have a very specific problem, question or topic that you need help with? I'm here to answer any questions! You need help with preparing for your A-levels/High School diploma? Don't fret, I will guide and prepare you! The most important part of my lessons is, however, to ensure a safe and comfortable environment - I have no issue with explaining the same concept over and over again until I am convinced that you have understood it. It is important to me that you feel comfortable in asking any questions - I want to show you, that Math is more than a subject and that it can be fun!

With the four-month Erasmus internship as a teacher of Greek language at the University of Zaragoza, Spain, I had the opportunity to gain teaching experience and interact with people of different cultural background.

All the educational material is provided by me! I am looking forward to meeting you!

PLACES, FEES - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.
