Exciting Drum Lessons for All Ages & All Music Styles

My name is Jim,

I am a working musician, recording artist, composer and performer based in London.

Apart from having years of experience with performing and recording, I've also taught drum lessons since I was 16 years old.
One of my favorite things about my job is witnessing my students getting hooked on the instrument and seeing that spark ignite! I'm very eager to let my students succeed in whatever they want to accomplish and find out the best approach to do so for each individual.

A few accomplishments and notable remarks:

- I'm able to teach you every popular genre: Rock, Pop, Jazz, Funk, Fusion, Hip Hop, Electronic etc.
- Honours degree in Performing arts (drums)
- Extra degree in pedagogy
- DBS certified
- Over 6 years of teaching experience
- Able to speak English, Dutch and German
- Experience in teaching children and adults
- Very flexible, professional and kind hearted
- Professional musician: a lot of direct experience in the music industry in London, having experienced touring, recording at Abbey Road Studios, record label deals and more..

I'm looking forward working with you!

About Me

Jim was born and raised in Arnhem, the Netherlands where first fell in love with drumming and percussion at the age of 7 after his father introduced him to latin percussion. After spending his first few years performing in local drum bands he then attended a local conservatoire from age 15 to 19, studying jazz and pop music on the drumset. After graduating he decided to pursue his musical career in London, where he graduated from the British & Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM) with an Honors Degree in Popular Music Performance in 2019.
Jim has studied with inspiring teachers such as Adam Betts (Mr Goldie), JP Bouvet (Best International drummer contest winner 2016), Tim Smart (The book of Mormon, the Specials), James Trood (AlunaGeorge), Justin Brown (Massive Attack), Andrew Mckinney (James Taylor Quartet) and Hans Eijkenaar (The Voice).

Jim has been working as a session drummer in London for over 3 years, performing, touring and recording for multiple artists in prestigious recording studios such as Abbey Road Studios and Dean Street Studios and venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, the Pizza Express Live Jazz Venue, the Hard Rock Cafe and the 02 Academy Islington. In 2019 Jim started his own contemporary jazz project called Creature., where he releases and performs his own original music frequently throughout London.

Jim started teaching children and adults at the age of 16 and developed a true passion in guiding students through their musical journey and create love and respect for the instrument. He strives to find and ignite the musical spark in each individual student. With his personal background, backed-up by his extra degree in Music Pedagogy, Jim has developed an excellent set of knowledge and intuition to work with every type of person.

(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!

Spanish online lessons with native spanish teacher for adults and teenagers
I am a native Spanish speaker and a general language enthusiast. In addition to Spanish, I speak German and English. I am 100% confident that I will successfully teach you Spanish (while having fun and relaxing)! I've been teaching spanish for 15 years. I am 41 years old, graduated with honors from the University of Salamanca. My main goal in teaching is to make students feel relaxed and comfortable while studying. Do you already know Spanish? No problem! Rather than building the basics, we can design courses to suit your personal needs and preferences. We can write essays together, you can give presentations on topics that interest you or that I present to you, we can discuss current events, engage in debates, you can write summaries of newspaper articles, or we can delve into advanced grammar. Whatever you enjoy and need, we can do it together. All my courses combine speaking, listening and grammar practice in interaction with me. Unless you are a very advanced student, we work with learning materials created by some of the best language learning publishers in Germany. These materials serve as a common thread for our course, introducing new words, grammar and exercises at a good pace and in an interesting way, keeping you engaged and motivated. I also show you German food, music and places. In addition, I will introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level. Another important factor for me is the personal connection. We usually start our lessons with how the weekend or previous weekdays were like. Contact me now to arrange a first lesson in which we can get to know each other so that I can learn more about you, your needs and desires and thus design the optimal course for you.
