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.

Drums & Rhythm Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
My approach to teaching drums is focused on developing a strong understanding of rhythm in general and applying it on the drum set. 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: - Polyrhythms - Groove - Technique - Macro & micro timing - Drum sounds for different genres/applications - Controlling dynamics between different limbs - Rhythm singing (konnakol) - Reading complex musical notations - Composing mathematically harmonious/inharmonious rhythms And much more... Starting from beginner, up to experienced drummers. I'm also giving rhythm lessons to non-drummers, just to anyone interested in getting to know more about the rhythmical concepts of South India - the most advanced rhythmic system on planet Earth!

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.

Alec
Drum Teacher available for technical and motivational lessons online
If you want to know not just about drum techniques and playing, but also about its history and musicianship, you'll definitely have a unique experience with my lessons. I believe drumming is not just about playing and knowing your chops, but also about being able to listen to others in the band and make sure you "be" part of the music, without resorting to thrashing around and proving to others what kind of noise you can make. Hence the phrase "A band should be as good as its drummer". :) Drumming is undoubtedly a way of building up your self-confidence, in order to establish your identity. The drums are a great use to channel your emotions, so long as you don't have to pull a Keith Moon. ;) I can also add keyboards to the mix.... But why is it relevant for a drummer, you may ask? Well, although it may look the contrary from the outside, having an ear for other instruments and chords is absolutely essential, because both your drumming nd ability to improvise contributes to the atmosphere of each song. If you want to know more, do please get in touch. I look forward to rocking out with you! :)

Drum lessons, learn how to play the drums, music theory etc.
I can offer 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 history of the drums -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.

Drum lessons, Inspiration, creativity, innovation and fun!
I want to inspire my students and encourage them to be creative in the field of making music and drumming. Every student is different and learns differently. For that reason, I bundle different teaching methods and extract what works best for the student. In addition, I want to let my students experience that music plays a major role in life. By making music for yourself or others you can grow in different areas. The new skills that you develop will be useful for the rest of your life.

Drum, percussion and music theory lessons in Rotterdam!
‘’Music has the power to inspire and connect people and give them a chance to express themselves.’’ I am a drummer, teacher, composer and arranger. In my home country and abroad I have been fortunate to work with some of the best musicians and bands: Croatian TV-Radio Jazz orchestra, HGM A Band, The Frajle, Davor Krizic Experiment and many others and to lead my own bands. My qualifications: -Primary and Secondary School for Popular and Jazz Music in Zagreb -University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria (Bachelor of Music) -currently doing my master studies in jazz drums at Codarts in Rotterdam. My goal as a teacher is to recognize and bring out the potential in each student and help them find their own way of expression. In the lessons we focus on: technique, sound, coordination, reading skills, interpretation, improvisation, grooves and independence. If you are wondering: yeah, that's cool but does she like pineapple on a pizza? Or: I wonder if she thinks that hot-dog is a sandwich? I hope to answer those questions and many more on our first lesson! P.S. Lessons are taught in English and Croatian.

Drum lessons for beginners and intermediate ! Cours de batterie pour débutants et intermédiaires.
English version (Lessons in French, English and Spanish == Dutch and Italian also possible but not the same proficiency languagewise ;-) Hello, First of all, I'm very fond of music in general and will (I think) always be. I played Cello for ten years (3- 14) and then decided to switch to drums. Not only can I teach you the basics but I can also help you work on your "internal clock", improvisation skills, technique, coordination and ear training. Over the years, I played with many bands such as Moaning Cities, Peter Kernel, Mccandless. ( Australian Band, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, France,...). I mainly studied with Dominique Hamet and the numerous drummers I had a chance to meet along the path. (Agostini method) Besides, I have been working on developing an instinctive method so as to teach complex concepts in the easiest way possible. Can't wait to start ! See you soon, Pierre Want to play drums ? Pierre Stick Control Utilisation de vidéo, enregistrement de l'élève possible. Je suis batteur semi-professionnel : Moaning Cities and Peter Kernel. (Belgium, Germany, France, Switzerland,...) Elève de Dominique Hamet (cf website) Pierrick Destrebecq (Skip The Use...) Je ferai tout pour faire de vous un batteur fantastique. Je fournis des devoirs à la maison pour ceux qui le désirent et je donne des pistes pour évoluer en s'amusant. A bientôt

Master the Art of Drumming from Beginner to Professional!
Drums are the back bone of any band or ensemble, determining the tempo, style and feel. But most importantly they're A LOT of FUN! In my 4 years experience of drum tutoring, with at one stage teaching over 30 pupils per week, I have found that everyone learns differently. I ensure my lessons are unique to your way of learning, allowing you to progress quickly and love the process. I cover all music theory for the drums from the start but also the art of improvisation to allow pupils to play freely and express their own style.

Rodrigo
Drums for beginners. Online rudiments or at student’s location for a full kit class.
If you are fairly new to drums, this class is perfect for you! I will give you a step-by-step lesson about everything you need to know. From rudiments to hand and foot techniques. I have 10 years of experience in drums. I have a diploma in Music Performance at BIMM London. I also play in a metal band doing eventual gigs around the UK and Europe. If you are into metal, great! If not, I can also teach you different music genres, like samba, funk, rock and so on.

Learn how to play drums and be the drummer in a band
I began to learn pianos at the age of four, and play drums for more than 7 years until now. I have played band as a drummer for more than 4 years and performed for many times. Besides, I listen to different music types, and we could exchange our music to each other.

John
Music, Drums, Double Bass, Theory, Ear Training, Introduction to Music
Graduated musician (nowadays enrolled in Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels) offers music lessons for all ages, experiences and interests. The main process will take place considering the previous knowledge of the student, in order to start a personal and individual learning path. Lessons can be about music theory, harmony, ear training, rhythm, but also percussions, double bass and drums. The main tool will be the listening and the comprehension of musical sounds, forms and feelings, in order to avoid a mere intellectual study. Playing and listening first!
