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, currently doing a masters degree in jazz at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.
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.

Reviews (1)

As a beginner, the course was pretty good for me to understand whether I am capable of going further or not :) Apparently I felt like I can do more and continue the courses with Roope. He is patient and can arrange how course should proceed based on my abilities and capabilities really well. I am planning to keep going the course.

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!

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! :)
