Learn the art of Pipe Band Snare Drumming with 1-1 tuition!

Ulster-Scot Pipe Band Snare Drumming is an art all of its own! With high technical ability required with ultimate hand-control but a ability that sets no limits, I can help you achieve this!
This class is for beginner/learner drummers who are either interested in learning a new style of drumming or aspiring to go further and higher! The focus in this tuition is to learn to play drum scores which begin at amateur level to advanced and high-level performance. The class will begin by teaching and demonstrating the 'traditional grip' of the sticks on both hands, then the explanation and theory of basic notes, rudiments and generic mass band scores to get started!
You'll learn a variety of rudiments which are specifically designed to help improve your hand-control and speed which take you from a beginner to an advanced drummer in little time!
If you are an absolute beginner, don't worry, I am currently teaching a young boy of 8 years old which only a couple of months ago couldn't hold the sticks but now can play 3/4, 4/4 and 6/8 march drum scores!

Extra information

Please bring your own phone (for taking videos of rudiments) as well as a notepad for taking notes down. Drum pad and sticks are necessary but upon arrival on first lesson, I can accommodate you and advise you suitable pad and sticks for future lessons.

About Me

I adopt the kind but firm approach to teaching snare drumming. I believe that a lot can be reaped from a student when sowed with care. As I have went through this before myself, I understand how difficult it can be for those starting out drumming so I hold patience in all that I do.
I like to sit down with my student and play on the same drum pad and thus giving him/her the confidence that there is nothing to fear. I demonstrate each and every rudiment and have notes written down for the student on each and every technique and movement that we go through - this also ensures that the student won't forget anything from one lesson to the next as well as guidance for when they are playing at home in their own practice sessions.

Education

Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Music Production - Leeds Beckett University
HND in Music Production - North-West Regional College
HNC in Music Production - North-West Regional College

Experience / Qualifications

I have learnt with some of the best snare drumming tutors in the country from various backgrounds and bands. I have also had the diverse experience with working with bands in various grades in different areas so I understand how each of them work in their own way and I can advise on solo competitions when the students' ability reaches a advanced stage of progress.

I am currently pursuing my third degree (Postgraduate Concertsoloist) at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, and have obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA.

SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
English Translation: contact me please SONGS generally consist of chord and text lines. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hIT or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you already play the guitar or piano, you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antennas are always open :-) and for some it is a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and minor input - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can achieve strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to share my knowledge about how to write a song with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book an hour to get started. That is the scan hour. Are we lying together and is there a click? If you book and I confirm, then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

Guitar and Music Theory Lessons by a Qualified and Experienced Teacher
I specialize in teaching about Music and how to play the Guitar. In class, I always make the effort of understanding what are the goals and interests of all students, as well as their own skills. This way we can address the issues at hand more effectively and make sure the student never loses his/her interest and focus in music and his/her instrument.

I offer good and personalized classes. This means that there will special care with your interest in music and guitar, all basic skills will be worked upon and strengthened, all specific requests and ideas will be addressed, both improvisation and interpretation can be developed and exploring potential, achieving goals and having fun are main priorities.

Music Production / Computer Aided Music Course
No matter what genre you like, by taking my course you will learn how to manage the different stages of music production. I detail it in all aspects: mastery of the software, choice of sounds, structure, mixing, effects. The objective of the courses is the acquisition of artistic as well as technical skills. I adapt to different profiles: age, level, pace, style, goals. --- I give lessons via webcam on Google Meet which allow sharing of the screen, as well as the sound. This has the advantage of allowing people to share their screen and the sound of their software with me from their computer, and therefore promote learning even with busy schedules, or even upset in these times of health crisis and covers -fire. It also allows me to listen and advise in real time, as much on the creative aspect (composition, vocals, arrangements) as on the mixing techniques. I adapt to the needs of creation, so I encourage people to apply my advice directly and concretely, during the course.
