Beibei

Hello, my name is Beibei, I have 10 years experience of performing as concert percussionist working with orchestras, schools, universities and curating my own project as well as extensive teaching experience, from large group workshops to 1:1 tuition. My aim is to make sure each of my pupils are well versed in all musical genres from classical to contemporary. We will have a focus on a certain style and work by playing along to bands and recordings to help improve the listening side of music. We will also work on technical exercises to ensure the growth as a great musician. I can also offer examinations, working towards graded exams can be useful for many people to get an understanding of progress and achievement when moving up to the next level. Lessons will be fun and there will be lots of chance for creativity and improvisation if desired. My approach to teaching drums, percussion and piano is focused on developing a strong understanding of rhythm, phrase, scales in general and applying it on playing. I will customise my teaching approach to your needs, depending on the level of your playing and your musical desires. I'll give my best in each lesson to guide you step-by-step into becoming a better musician/drummer. You can learn about: - Groove - Technique - Drum sounds and percussion for different genres/applications - Controlling dynamics between different limbs - Reading complex musical notations - Composing and improvisation - Piano and music theory - Body percussion And much more... Starting from beginner, up to experienced drummers.

Drum lessons for everyone, rumputunteja kaikille, music theory
I can provide you private drum lessons, that are tailored completely by your own interests, or I can advice you what would be efficient for you to improve, depending on where you stand with your experience and skills. We can together discuss about setting a goal, and start working your way towards it. You don't have to have previous experience in playing the drums. You can be an absolute beginner, intermediate, or more advanced student. I also teach all ages. Some things that we can go through in lessons: -Overall knowledge over the instrument -Tuning & setting up the drums -Posture & technique -Groove & timing. Playing with a metronome -Sound & dynamics -Different styles (jazz, soul, funk, hiphop, latin, pop/rock etc.) -Rudimental playing (classical etudes to improve your technique) -Reading, writing & transcribing drum notes/fills/solos etc. -Improvisation -Polyrhythms Everything is possible! :) You just need to show up, grab a pair of sticks with you, and we can see what interests you and we may go further.

Alex
Rocker seeks to convey his passion for music.
Before each class, I simplify what I am going to teach so that the student does not have trouble and has fun understanding. My classes are based on the knowledge I learned in a music university and my own knowledge. The subject is approached in a free / creative way but also in a structured way.

Glenn
Targeted private drum lessons tailored to the student.
Before we start the lessons, a specific goal is first set. This can be anything (improving technique or reading skills, learning to play a particular song, learning to play the drums in a particular style, learning a basics, etc.). When the goals have been determined, a personal route is mapped out for you to achieve them.

I have been playing with many Jazz-Rock-World artists such as: Chick Corea, John Abercrombie, Jacob Collier, Dave Holland, Jeff Berlin, Larry Corryell, Wilko Johnson, Norman Wat-Roy, and many more. I'm also a composer and band leader since 1997 and been touring around the world in many of the main jazz and world festivals. I like to tailor my teaching to the students level and needs but mostly focused on these areas: 1. Basic hand and feet technique 2. Jazz playing 3. Improvisation around the drums 4. Rhythmic training (with the art of the south indian vocal percussion - Konnakol) 5. Keeping motivated & inspired in the new world of social media

Romain
Master student at HEMU gives Drums and / or Rhythm lessons
Musician from a young age, I am currently finishing the MASTER in JAZZ DRUMS from the HEMU in Lausanne. I also graduated from the Nantes CRR in the same discipline, as well as from the AGOSTINI school in Angers. I have a great experience of the scene in a field ranging from Current Music to Jazz via Street Arts and Live Performance. I give Drums and Rhythm lessons (also for non drummers) at home or in my room located in the Flon district of Lausanne. My courses are aimed at all levels, and take as a starting point where you are now, while respecting your motivations. For the children, my idea is to provide them with a consistent and solid base that will allow them to follow the path they want in complete freedom thereafter. They include: - Posture, breathing, functioning of the body - Instrument settings and sound work - Technical warm-up (wrists and feet) - Work on different styles (Rock, Funk, Soul, Latin, Jazz, HipHop ...) - Solfeggio and rhythmic reading (melodic and harmonic possible according to expectations) - Listening, History and General Culture all styles combined - Improvisation I try to make the lessons fun and my main goal is to share a good time and have fun, see you soon!

Battery: Classes / internships / training / face-to-face and distance coaching
I offer my services (lessons, internships, training, coaching) to drummers of all levels, all musical styles and all geographic areas The first contact consists above all in discussing the desires and the desired axes of progression. For people wishing to opt for the classic format courses: Different packages with sliding scale tariffs are offered. For people wishing to go further: Intensive training / internship with pedagogy and personalized coaching, in order to give a big boost in technique, music theory (optional), but also on other aspects of the modern musician (home studio, stage ...). This is for any motivated and available drummer, at least 17 years old, wishing / wishing to improve or even professionalize, to become intermittent (e) or teacher of drums, to integrate one or more semi-professional or professional groups, to be versatile or to excel in their favorite style (s) ... For people wishing to learn at their own pace, without any scheduling constraints: System of distance learning videos (which can be accompanied by scores), relating specific themes at the request of the pupil (can possibly replace lessons or be complementary to them) For people who have not yet decided to get started on this instrument: Discovery course over several hours or even several sessions, in order to discover the world of drums (For more details on all these formats, contact me) In all cases, I adapt to each student on: - the form: I am flexible and can use alternatives to music theory for those who are resistant to it (for example, by making a video of the summary of what was seen, by re-explaining orally and by re-performing the exercises on the drums)) - the background: I always adapt to the wishes of the student if he knows what he wants The most important thing for me is to make things seemingly complicated -> simple to understand and to execute, while making sure that I direct the student in the direction he wants to take, and that he takes fun to learn The goal is to regularly cover pieces of music in order to put the things learned in a purely musical context. Regardless of the course chosen, I accept all means of payment, as well as CESUs. The latter is very interesting for the employer (yourself) because it will allow him to benefit either from a tax reduction, or from a tax credit if it is not taxable (50% of the amount courses in the year deducted from taxes or credited in taxes the following year)

Music lessons: drums, percussions, music theory ...
Hello, I offer drums lessons in a warm place or at your home. Come and discover the battery differently. My mission is to help you develop your own identity on the instrument. I offer you a fun approach that focuses on the pleasure of playing. Having followed training and courses throughout my life (conservatory, schools ...), I am passionate and dedicated to sharing all of my experience with you. I practice in many music groups and other structures (schools, associations ...). With more than 20 years of experience in drums and more than 10 years in percussion, I teach many musical genres (jazz through Latin music, pop, hip hop, rock, hard, punk, metal ..) , the double pedal, notions of music theory, rhythmic reading. Possibility of taking percussion lessons (darbuka, bongos, African djembe, congas, jaw harp, dhol). The programs are directly inspired by internationally recognized methods, thus being able to adapt to the needs, levels and requirements of each individual. I travel but I also receive in a room with equipment available (any age and level of practice are allowed, from initialization to professionals). A different approach to music lessons: My teaching is resolutely modern. Classes are a moment of musical and human sharing where error is used as a positive experience to move forward. We work by oral transmission to complete the scores. We use onomatopoeia to quickly develop musical and felt play, rather than just reading and playing. So ... Tempted? No excuse, I give you couses from Monday to Sunday from 8 am to 11 pm. FROM child (from 5 years old) to senior, and from beginner to professional. Registration possible all year round. Contact me for more info on prices and formulas ... See you soon,

Aurel
Drum lessons with qualified and experienced teacher - all styles, all levels
Hello! My name is Aurel and I am a French Amsterdam-based drummer. Although currently specialized in Jazz music, I have studied various esthetics, and Pop and Rock music, in particular, are part of my background (I played in several pop-rock bands). Therefore I am able to teach a broad panel of music styles. I also have many drum methods and charts at my disposal, and have experience in teaching children from the age of 6, as well as teenagers and adults. Lessons and teaching method: I always adapt to the student's tastes and learning profiles. This is why, during the first lesson, and on a regular basis afterwards, I always take time to discuss with my students (or their parents if they are very young) to figure out together the path they want or need to follow. I will use charts and methods for those who need visual support to assimilate the skills or teach by ear and by demonstrating to the ones who feel more comfortable this way. I also play electric guitar and can jam with my students, which is a great tool for developing band playing skills or simply to have a good time. For those eager to make significant progress, I offer consistent and serious monitoring, with practice recommendations. I can for instance prepare a student for an audition or an entrance exam in a conservatory. If you are willing to improve your understanding of rhythm in general, you can also benefit from my knowledge of Indian Karnatic rhythm concepts, one of the most complete traditional approaches to rhythm. Students who simply want to learn at their pace, to have fun and unwind, are definitely welcome too! About me: In addition to my jazz drums bachelor and master degrees from the conservatory of Amsterdam (CvA), which included a thorough pedagogical training and a specialization in Indian Karnatic techniques, I benefit from 4 years of experience as an employed drum teacher in two French associative music schools (Ecole de musique de Nangis and Conservatoire des Deux Rives, Moret-sur-Loing). I am also an active musician, both on the Dutch and the French scene. My trio mainly tours in France and has played at venues such as the Sunside (Paris), or participated in competitions like the Keep An Eye International Jazz Award. I am also the co-leader of the sextet Chai Masters, finalist of several European competitions (Leiden Jazz Award, Golden Jazz Trophy in Lille, France, 7 Virtual Jazz Contest). The band just got selected for the finals of Keep An Eye The Records. Looking forward to meeting you and passing on my know-how to you!
