Aurel - Amsterdam$37
Trusted teacher: 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!

Ben - Luton$56
Trusted teacher: 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).

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)

Florent - Brussels$31
Trusted teacher: *** 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 ! :-)

Carlo is a professional Drummer based in London. Graduated on the one year Diploma at the international Tech Music School and he's studied privately with The best teachers too. He played in different projects and music events (rock bands,Theatre productions, Orchestras...) in the UK and Italy. The lessons will be based on: Techniques Coordination Stick Control Moving Around the Drum Set Improving your Sound Rudiments Studying different grooves Sooloing How to play with music...
The drumset is one of the most important and powerful instruments in a music ensemble. It does not only provide the rhythm and groove foundation for all the other instruments - it also defines the sound of the band, the character of the songs, the volume... just like an orchestra conductor. In these lessons (which are of course personalized and open depending on the interests of the student) we will work beyond the physical/mechanical aspect of the drums (technique, coordination, etc) into the musical aspect, so we will spend some time listening and analyzing music together, working on ear training and music theory from a practical point of view.

Drum classes - My teaching method is to understand and act specifically with what that particular student wants to know and what he is thinking. This is a single instrument on which there are many perspectives from different people. I will cover ( stick holding, body posture, tuning, rudiments, metronome playing, time signatures, rhythmic vocabulary and many more topics.) I prefer one on one classes more to know my students better at what they want and to learn.
