Drum Kit Lessons. Learn how play the drums with an experienced teacher.

I teach students from Primary school, all the way to Performance Degree level. Through my years of performing and teaching I have learnt how to teach and interact with all different personality types with a view to meeting their individual needs.

With my online courses I look forward to helping students get to where they want to be. Whether it is playing along to your favourite songs, sitting a Drum Exam for Rockschool or Trinity, or turning Drumming into a professional and sustainable career. We can take it as far as you like.

I have several location options if not online.

Extra information

If lessons are online you will need.
1. A strong internet connection or 4G.
2. Your instrument of a playable standard.
3. A good camera angle so that I can see you and the full kit.
4. I mainly use the APP Zoom- There are some audio settings that will make the lesson easier that I can talk you through.
5. If you have a fairly old laptop or desktop the microphones are actually a lot better on Phones or iPads.
6. After online lessons if needed I film recap videos to help with any challenging parts.

Aurel
Drum lessons with qualified and experienced teacher - all styles, all levels
Hello! My name is Aurel and I am a French Amsterdam-based drummer. Although currently specialized in Jazz music, I have studied various esthetics, and Pop and Rock music, in particular, are part of my background (I played in several pop-rock bands). Therefore I am able to teach a broad panel of music styles. I also have many drum methods and charts at my disposal, and have experience in teaching children from the age of 6, as well as teenagers and adults. Lessons and teaching method: I always adapt to the student's tastes and learning profiles. This is why, during the first lesson, and on a regular basis afterwards, I always take time to discuss with my students (or their parents if they are very young) to figure out together the path they want or need to follow. I will use charts and methods for those who need visual support to assimilate the skills or teach by ear and by demonstrating to the ones who feel more comfortable this way. I also play electric guitar and can jam with my students, which is a great tool for developing band playing skills or simply to have a good time. For those eager to make significant progress, I offer consistent and serious monitoring, with practice recommendations. I can for instance prepare a student for an audition or an entrance exam in a conservatory. If you are willing to improve your understanding of rhythm in general, you can also benefit from my knowledge of Indian Karnatic rhythm concepts, one of the most complete traditional approaches to rhythm. Students who simply want to learn at their pace, to have fun and unwind, are definitely welcome too! About me: In addition to my jazz drums bachelor and master degrees from the conservatory of Amsterdam (CvA), which included a thorough pedagogical training and a specialization in Indian Karnatic techniques, I benefit from 4 years of experience as an employed drum teacher in two French associative music schools (Ecole de musique de Nangis and Conservatoire des Deux Rives, Moret-sur-Loing). I am also an active musician, both on the Dutch and the French scene. My trio mainly tours in France and has played at venues such as the Sunside (Paris), or participated in competitions like the Keep An Eye International Jazz Award. I am also the co-leader of the sextet Chai Masters, finalist of several European competitions (Leiden Jazz Award, Golden Jazz Trophy in Lille, France, 7 Virtual Jazz Contest). Recently, the band was part of Keep An Eye The Records's finalists (March 2022). Looking forward to meeting you and passing on my know-how to you!

Do you want to learn some cuban grooves? or maybe latin jazz?

Achille
Drums / music lessons all styles / all levels
Hello, My name is Achille, I am 28 years old and I study jazz drums at the Royal Superior Conservatory of Brussels. I offer you my services as a drummer but also more broadly as a passionate and semi-professional musician. I offer drum lessons but also rhythm lessons (even if you are not a drummer or percussionist!), For all styles and all levels. I can also help you with composition, harmony or piano, preferably for middle level students. I have many experiences as a musician: many groups of different styles (reggae, hip hop, funk, rock, jazz, French song), and also as a private teacher or in music school, individual or in group . I also have many experiences of concerts, live or studio recordings, master classes, internships, jam sessions ... I will be very happy to share my passion, my profession, in caring and listening, working the theory in close connection with the practice, in order to have fun but also to become autonomous! Do not hesitate to contact me for any information or other requests! Important: I have a room located in Etterbeek, or I would prefer to give my lessons, but I can possibly come to your place. Hope to meet you. Achille.

Music lessons: drums, percussions, 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,

★ Drums lessons ★ Introduction to rhythm + Development of rhythmic creativity for any instrument ★ Musical theory ★
*** Course content *** I offer 3 different types of lessons: ★ Drum lessons Whether you are a beginner or already have experience with the instrument, together we can find the elements and styles that interest you and that you want to work on. ★ Rhythm lessons (also for toddlers!) Both theoretical and practical, these courses aim to present very concrete tools to develop your rhythmic feeling as well as your creativity on the instrument! We can also analyze the songs you like, understand their structure, decipher scores, etc. We can also together approach or deepen the notions of polyrhythms, polymers, asymmetric measures, and discover where they are located and how they are used in the music you like, and why not try to reproduce them on your instrument! -> I also offer introductory rhythms workshops for young children! Dances, songs and guided body percussions, manufacture of small instruments that the child can reproduce at home, "rhythmic tales & stories", etc. ★ Music theory lessons (music theory) Here, I propose to help you in your learning of the theoretical concepts of music. ***Methodology*** Combining practice and pleasure on the instrument is essential in my opinion, but I remain very flexible and of course adapt according to your desires! I think it's important to establish with you a framework that we can constantly rethink; find a way of operating that suits you as much in form as in substance, whether your goals are to achieve higher levels of playing, precision, speed, creativity on the instrument or whether it is a desire lighter, such as learning to play songs you like. Everything is possible ! :-)

Lessons available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, & German. I am Tomás , an experienced live and studio drummer with a Master Of Music degree from the Royal Northern College of Music in the UK and I am available as a private tutor. 
MY APPROACH
 I am aware that everyone is different and therefore lessons need to be individually tailored every time. I will make an effort to get to know you as a person as well as your reason for playing the drums so I can then adjust your lesson material adequately. This ensures that every student is enjoying themselves from the very first lesson and therefore the learning will naturally occur much faster.
 WHERE Lessons are at my studio in Wedding, postcode 13359. The room is spacious and comfortable and has a PA system and two drum kits, making it ideal for lessons. I am also available to teach at the student’s location; AGES I have taught one-on-one lessons to kids as young as 7 but also to adults in their 50s and 60s. Whatever your age, we will make it work.

 SKILL LEVELS 
My experience ranges from teaching young beginners who are just starting out to mature drummers who need to polish their playing. For beginner students, I will teach you the basics of drumming in an approachable way to make it enjoyable from the very start. For experienced drummers, I can improve your technique, groove, feel, tone, articulation, dynamics, stage performance, vocabulary, listening, and reading. All this so you can become a better musician, not just a drummer. I also like to teach in a way that empowers you to teach yourself in the future. ABOUT MY TEACHING EXPERIENCE I have been teaching 1-on-1 lessons for 11 years. I also have 7 years experience leading drum and percussion workshops.

Music Lessons! (Exploring rock instruments and songwriting)
At Attuned lessons are uniquely designed to give you the skills you need to make the music you want to make. We begin by teaching a single instrument, for example, guitar. We learn about how a guitar works, how you play it and how different guitarists have defined and redefined how the instrument can be used. But underlying the guitar are universal music concepts that can be applied to any instrument anywhere; things like tone, melody, rhythm and composition. Once you’ve got a handle on the guitar we learn about how these musical concepts can be applied in other places. Depending on interest and creative curiosity, in our lessons we can explore guitar, bass, drums, piano, voice, basic recording and production, music notation, classical composition, song and lyric writing, playing with a band, and performing music. The process of learning music is never complete. We hope to give our students the tools they need to spend their whole lives learning, playing and enjoying music.

Jonathan
Battery: Classes / internships / training / face-to-face and distance coaching
I offer my services (lessons, internships, training, coaching) to drummers of all levels, all musical styles and all geographic areas The first contact consists above all in discussing the desires and the desired axes of progression. For people wishing to opt for the classic format courses: Different packages with sliding scale tariffs are offered. For people wishing to go further: Intensive training / internship with pedagogy and personalized coaching, in order to give a big boost in technique, music theory (optional), but also on other aspects of the modern musician (home studio, stage ...). This is for any motivated and available drummer, at least 17 years old, wishing / wishing to improve or even professionalize, to become intermittent (e) or teacher of drums, to integrate one or more semi-professional or professional groups, to be versatile or to excel in their favorite style (s) ... For people wishing to learn at their own pace, without any scheduling constraints: System of distance learning videos (which can be accompanied by scores), relating specific themes at the request of the pupil (can possibly replace lessons or be complementary to them) For people who have not yet decided to get started on this instrument: Discovery course over several hours or even several sessions, in order to discover the world of drums (For more details on all these formats, contact me) In all cases, I adapt to each student on: - the form: I am flexible and can use alternatives to music theory for those who are resistant to it (for example, by making a video of the summary of what was seen, by re-explaining orally and by re-performing the exercises on the drums)) - the background: I always adapt to the wishes of the student if he knows what he wants The most important thing for me is to make things seemingly complicated -> simple to understand and to execute, while making sure that I direct the student in the direction he wants to take, and that he takes fun to learn The goal is to regularly cover pieces of music in order to put the things learned in a purely musical context. Regardless of the course chosen, I accept all means of payment, as well as CESUs. The latter is very interesting for the employer (yourself) because it will allow him to benefit either from a tax reduction, or from a tax credit if it is not taxable (50% of the amount courses in the year deducted from taxes or credited in taxes the following year)
