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.

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 for beginners, intermediate and advanced students
I have been teaching drums for the past 12 years to many students in different ages and levels, from beginners to advanced students. I believe learning an instrument should be fun and rewarding. Through learning an instrument you learn a lot about life, discipline and develop the ability to listen with great focus. In our lessons we will learn drums through playing. We will also combine focusing on technique, reading and more specific subjects, but the main goal is to play the instrument and to have fun!

Roope
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.

Dominic
Professional and Contemporary Drum Lessons/Tutorial (English Tutition)
Dominic I am a 27-year-old percussionist from Ireland with 14 years experience in percussion. I studied Professional Music Performace at the Academy of Contemporary Music just outside of London, graduating with a BA (Hons) degree. After taking tutoring and master classes with legendary drummers, such as Chad Smith (Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and Frank Tontoh (Amy Winehouse), I am well practised in every style and genre catered to your preferences. I teach every aspect of Drumming from performance and reading drum scores, to business and breaking into the music industry.

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! :)

James
Professional Drum Teacher for All Ages (North West London)
Hi there, my name's James. I've been playing since the age of 10 (12 years), during which I have played with a number of bands and taught many students, both privately and in schools. I'm currently the touring drummer for London Calling UK, The Meatloaf Story, and Emma Stevens, and have partaken in festivals and shows around the UK and Europe. I am able to teach whatever it is you're wanting to learn. Whether we're starting at the beginning, or learning a certain song, each lesson will be tailored specifically to you and your needs. I can provide in-person 1 to 1 lesson either at my home studio or at a place of the student's choice (within reason), or via video chats like Zoom and Skype. I am DBS checked.

Kell
Fun, Engaging Drum Lessons | All Ages, All Abilities
I am a graduate of the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance and have been playing drums since I was 12. I have a wide breadth of playing experience including festivals, high-profile function gigs, studio recordings, international gigs, and more. Having taught many students both individually and in groups, ranging from ages 5-50+, beginner to advanced, both privately and as a tutor at Preston Manor Music Academy, I am confident I can help you achieve your goals on the drums. My goal as a drum tutor is to help you achieve whatever YOU want. Our lessons will be focused on what you'd like to learn, with the appropriate technical foundations to help you reach your goals. I believe lessons should be a learning experience for both students and teachers, and most of all, they should be FUN!

Achille
Drums / music lessons all styles / all levels

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.

Ben
Music Tutor: Drum Kit, Piano, Theory, Composition & Transcription
The benefits of learning an instrument are huge. It boosts your memory, abstract reasoning skills, creativity, confidence, patience and relieves stress. Most importantly it is fun. I teach the drum kit, piano, theory, composition and transcription. I love sharing my passion with my students, supporting and empowering them to become the best they can be. I’m big on inspiring my students to continue progressing between lessons, independently, focussing on technical ability, stylistic understanding and the development of their own musical voice. If you choose to take graded examinations, I have a strong track record of getting students high marks. I’m an examiner myself, so I know exactly how to prepare you. Grades 6-8 practical / theory give you UCAS points equivalent to A levels, and grades 5-6 are regarded as equivalent to GCSE level. It’s a great way to stand out when applying to schools and universities. I teach children and adults 1-to-1 online, from my home in Luton or at students’ homes nearby. Students coming to me benefit from access to industry standard equipment and software - invaluable experience for any aspiring, modern musician. I hold an Advanced DBS Certificate and have many testimonials and references (upon request).
