I offer drumming lessons catered to your needs and pace. I have played in many different settings in South Africa and Hong Kong and have worked with many different musicians.

We will cover everything from basics to being able to work out parts to your favourite songs. I am extremely patient and ready to help you excel. The most important thing is that you have fun doing it. Yes, there will be some challenges, but rest assured that nobody you see performing got there instantly. It all takes time, dedication and passion.

Trusted teacher: Hello! My name is Tony. I am a drummer. I am a graduate of the Pedagogical Institute and College of Music, majoring in drums. From 2010 to the present day, my main job is drum teaching as self-employed private instructor. It takes 30-40 hours a week in my life. I also don't stop practicing on my own to develop my skills as a drummer. Since 2019, I have been a student of the drummer Peter Erskine. I also have quite positive feedback from my students. They are in Russian, but you can translate them using Google.In my teaching activities, I use proven teaching materials: «Drum Book» by Kevin Tuck «Rockin’ Bass Drum» by John Lombardo «Ultimate Realistic Rock» by Carmine Appice «It’s Your Move» by Dom Famularo «Stick Technoque» by Bill Bachman «Modern Rudimental Swing Solos» by Charley Wilcoxon «Contemporary Drumset Techniques» and «Advanced Funk Studies» by Rick Latham «Future Sounds» by David Garibaldi «Advanced Techinques For The Modern Drummer» by Jim Chapin «Rudimental Jazz» and «Master Studies» by Joe Morello And of course my own ideas and developments. Also with all the students I study many famous songs. My curriculum is large and extensive. I not only go through these books with students from beginning to end, but also teach them to interpret everything that we study in a variety of ways, to apply this knowledge in practice when playing with drumless tracks. I teach people to combine different approaches to drumming and make conscious changes to their playing. This helps students to analyze the playing of other musicians and make their drumming vocabulary more varied and rich.
