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!

Noam
Drums Lessons in English and Hebrew - Noam - Professional Drummer, Teacher and Producer
Hello everyone! My name is Noam and I am a professional drummer, drum teacher and music producer, living in Brussels. I am available for drum lessons in Brussels for all levels, beginner to advanced. Learning drums is extremely fun and satisfying! It involves the entire body and the mind, challenging in many different ways and extremely rewarding. While it can be demanding to learn an instrument, it can be as easy as you want it to be. Our lessons can be designed to fit your personal goal. In the lessons we will play songs, study technique and reading and learn different genres of music - all while having fun! I have been teaching for over 12 years. I am very passionate about teaching music, I believe it has the power to change lives, and also helps with just putting a smile on your face :)

Learn the basics of drumming within ONE month! Dont hesitate to call!
I've been playing drums for 15 years and been playing with some great jazz artists like Benny Golson, Billy Hart, Peter Bernstein, Carla Bley, Steve Swallow, Randy Brecker, Jim Rotondi. I can show you around and teach you the basics of drumming.

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! :)

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.

I teach drums for different levels and ambitions.

If I´d teach what I want, then you´ll for sure quit playing or in the best option change teacher. That´s why I am sure we can go further ahead together; I am here to use my experience to help you and feed your curiosity!
