    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.

    About Me

    Hello!

    My name is Roope and I'm a professional drummer. I come from Finland, and been living in Amsterdam since 2015.
    Music has always played a big role in my life. I have grown up listening and playing classical, jazz, hiphop, progressive/psychedelic rock, and pretty much all kinds of stuff, which makes it easy for me to understand different interests and styles.

    I come from a musical family, plus my parents and many relatives are teachers. For me teaching has always been a thing that I enjoyed to do, and I feel that it goes pretty naturally for me.

    Besides of music Im very fascinated about arts, rock climbing and skateboarding.

    Feel free to ask me anything, Im more than happy to help!! :)

    Education

    Conservatory of Turku (2014), music performance, drums
    Conservatory of Amsterdam, Bachelor in jazz music (2019), drums

    I have been studying drums with Jukkis Uotila, Martijn Vink, Marcel Serierse, Lucas Van Merwijk, Haye Jellema etc.

    I started music at the age of 5 with classical piano.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I've been an active, performing drummer and musician since 2010 and have been giving private music lessons for almost a decade now.

    2014-2015, before moving to Amsterdam I worked as the main drum teacher in a private music school in Paimio, Finland, called Varsinais-Suomen kansanopisto.

    Since 2010 I have worked on/off as a substitute teacher in elementary schools & high schools in Finland.

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.

    Violin Lessons for all levels in English, Dutch and Spanish
    "I deeply believe in the greater importance of Music and in its ability to influence and shape who we are as human beings." -Daniel Barenboim In my classes, the student will grow his/her love for Music and violin playing by a very conscious work on technique and musicality. As a student, I started through Suzuki Method, which I followed for many years as a child, kept growing illustrated by the Franco-Belgian players, and discovered the importance of physical observation and technical accuracy from the Russian playing. Far to often I have seen young talents spoiled by physical tensions and also technical perfection with lack of musicality. It is my main objective to grow this two aspects in balance and combine a beautiful and encouraging repertoire with the necessary efficient exercises to free the body. I have a Master of Music degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I have students of all ages and they can tell their experience on their own.
