Drum kit and percussion. Learning how to play and perform all styles on the Drum kit and Percussion.

I am a recent graduate from the Royal Academy of Music where I studied percussion for 4 years, and obtained my Bachelor of Music degree. I have vast experience of performing in many different situations and changing genres, 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 styles from rock and pop to swing and funk to Afro-Cuban and the cha - cha. 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 Drummer. 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.

Drum lessons in Tilburg - for all ages, styles and levels
Do you love music and spend all day tapping and drumming on everything? Then drumming might be something for you! During the lesson you will rock and groove on the drum kit and we will work on your favorite music. Who am I? Hi, my name is Ruben and I love music! I started playing drums when I was 7 and have never stopped. After high school I studied at the Rock Academy in Tilburg, where I developed further as a musician. I am regularly on stage myself. Mostly as a drummer, but also as a guitarist. I like to share my love for music with others. Through the lessons I give, I let the students experience how much fun it is to make music themselves. I have been doing this with great pleasure for more than 6 years. In addition, I have been teaching for 5 years and I regularly give music workshops.

Music lessons: drums, percussion, rhythmic 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,

I have been a professional drummer for 15 years. I have recorded several albums with different bands. I also have been touring and playing festivals with loads of bands all over the world. My goal has always been to show that the drummer should not always just be in back. The drummer should be as fun to watch and hear play as the rest of the band. So if you are interested in learning to play drums, the showmanship behind it and how you work in a band and projects. Please contact me and I will make sure that you learn all these important parts of the showbiz that many forget about.

Basic drumming techniques for beginners - lessons
First lesson is free. I will teach the students how a drum set works and teach them more about it, then we will start with the basic exercises. I have a booklet that the students can look into so they don't have to buy a new one. There are a few simple pieces that we will practice on and further in time they can also start choosing themselves. This is as beginner level.

Music and Drumming: Becoming a Confident Personality Behind the Kit
Becoming a confident musician is a skill that requires discipline, dedication and hard work. However I strongly believe that whether you wish to progress your skills on an instrument to a professional level, simply get the most out of playing In a band with friends or jamming along to your favourite playlists, the art of learning an instrument is an incredibly rewarding skill. In our lessons we will focus on building a solid foundation across the basics of playing the Drum Kit. We will discover the rich and diverse history of the instrument and move through the jazz, funk, rock and pop era's of music. While I am happy to tailor all of these lessons to the student's needs, I do believe having a basic knowledge of where the instrument and it's vocabulary came from is essential and will have a positive impact on the students playing. Listening is important! We will work through a number of landmark recordings that carve the path of the Drum Kit's evolution and continue the listening process all the way to your favourite songs and how the drums affect that music and the rest of the band! I am also happy to work through ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall and/or Rockschool exam grades. Music is all about communication, and being able to fluently communicate ideas on any instrument requires time and practice. However, like with your very first English lessons in school, over time you can develop the skill of communication to a point where you can exchange many different ideas and create interesting conversations (this time between musical instruments rather than your friends in the pub!). Although I understand music is a not a career for everyone, I strongly believe that learning how to play any instrument properly with discipline and good practice will enhance your life is more ways than anyone who doesn't play music will understand.

Francisco
Drum classes, Rhythm, Musical theory. professional drummer
The classes behave based on the interests and level of the student. The idea is to have fun and set objectives and goals to work on to simultaneously advance in technique and musicality when playing the drums. At the same time, there is constant work on posture, breathing and relaxation to improve the interpretation of the instrument and avoid long-term injuries. Usually the class is divided into two sections, the first with technical work to achieve greater ease and comfort when performing, exercises are given to improve musical rhythmic reading applied to the drums, coordination, speed, rudiments, drum exercises and different hits where we will experiment with timbres. The second part is practical; We will perform a repertoire of interest, we will practice rhythms, grooves, applying breaks and fills of different styles. All this aimed at working on musicality and intuition that allows developing a rhythmic "ear", improvising and even composing and arranging one's own songs. I'm waiting for you, happy to receive you in my classes!
