AlexDrums & 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:
- 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!
RoopeDrum 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.
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.
