Drum Lessons / Schlagzeugunterricht - Friendly, approachable, and enjoyable from the first lesson!

Drum Lessons / Schlagzeugunterricht - Friendly, approachable, and enjoyable from the first lesson!

Lessons available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, & German.


I am Tomás , an experienced live and studio drummer with a Master Of Music degree from the Royal Northern College of Music in the UK and I am available as a private tutor.

MY APPROACH
I am aware that everyone is different and therefore lessons need to be individually tailored every time. I will make an effort to get to know you as a person as well as your reason for playing the drums so I can then adjust your lesson material adequately. This ensures that every student is enjoying themselves from the very first lesson and therefore the learning will naturally occur much faster.

WHERE
Lessons are at my studio in Wedding, postcode 13359. The room is spacious and comfortable and has a PA system and two drum kits, making it ideal for lessons. I am also available to teach at the student’s location;
AGES
I have taught one-on-one lessons to kids as young as 7 but also to adults in their 50s and 60s. Whatever your age, we will make it work.

SKILL LEVELS
My experience ranges from teaching young beginners who are just starting out to mature drummers who need to polish their playing. For beginner students, I will teach you the basics of drumming in an approachable way to make it enjoyable from the very start. For experienced drummers, I can improve your technique, groove, feel, tone, articulation, dynamics, stage performance, vocabulary, listening, and reading. All this so you can become a better musician, not just a drummer. I also like to teach in a way that empowers you to teach yourself in the future.

ABOUT MY TEACHING EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching 1-on-1 lessons for 11 years. I also have 7 years experience leading drum and percussion workshops.

ABOUT MY DRUMMING EXPERIENCE
I've been drumming for over 22 years and have now recorded and gigged with multiple bands, some of which I am the co-founder and co-songwriter for. Styles of music I have performed include rock, jazz, funk, psychedelia, afrobeat, disco, dance rock, electro, grunge, metal, blues, latin, and samba. I have a Master Of Music degree from Manchester’s Conservatoire (Royal Northern College of Music) in the UK. I also have experienced producing, composing, and mixing which I am more than happy to share with you.

If you’ve got any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

All the best,
Tomás

Orestis
Composition, Music theory, Music Production Lessons
Hello there, I am a professional composer living in Berlin Mitte. I hold a Master's and a Bachelor's degree in Composition from the conservatory of Utrecht in the Netherlands. I write for orchestras, ensembles and theater and I have had commissions from the Athens State Orchestra, the International Ensemble Modern Academy and the Gaudeamus Festival among others. Since 7 years I have been teaching students of any age (kids, adults) and level the following Subjects: -Composition / Songwriting -Music Theory -Music Production / Music Software (Sibelius, Logic) -Advanced Rhythm I am open to any combination of the above subjects :-) I always try to adapt to each student, his level and most importantly his needs. *With adults that are already musically active I like to focus the work we do together on the project you are working on now, in a way that can help you now. *With kids or adults willing to take that road, we can do the "harder" type of work that will build and enhance the foundations of your musical knowledge. I can teach in English and German and the lesson can be at my place, your place, or via webcam.

Hi, I'm Gavin and i love teaching musicians young and old to develop their abilities and competency in music, Do you what to compose and develop musical ideas and skills ?

I offer a service to empower you with the most efficient liberating skills in the modern age!

Francisco
Guitar/Music/Composition Lessons in Berlin (All ages and all levels welcome!)
Hello! Alright I'll break it down by parts. If you look for a more "narrowed description" just scroll down where I made a list :) My name is Francisco, and I'm a guitar player from Argentina, currently living in Berlin. I am very enthusiastic about teaching and sharing the energy to grow musically to my students. I have taught music for 7 years in schools and privately at home. With private lessons my aim is to adjust to the student likes and abilities. I am attentive to the needs and the reasons why someone is wanting to play and learn music. And I try to encourage the curiosity and spirit of making music and not follow what is "considered" that you should learn. What to expect from the first lesson with me? To get to know each other. That way I see what you like and what you don't, what you already play, and your learning pace. And probably I can share with you something new already, and from there, we will build a "program" according to what you want and your rhythm, and time availability. I value singularity and I like to get to know who I teach, so that way I can help them better. It can be first chords and ways of learning new songs, or improvisational tools, or pure harmony and theory stuff. Because everyone is different, for example, if you like Rock I will go in that direction and teach you the elements that make Rock sound like it does and I won't teach you Jazz Harmony, if you like Classical music we will go over the abilities that you have to have to execute this kind of music, the same goes for the styles that I play. My skills: I play and have played mainly Fingerstyle Guitar, Jazz, Argentine Tango, Jazz Manouche, Rock, Rockabilly, Experimental. I have worked a lot playing Bossa Nova at some point. I don't like teaching something that I don't know. So for example, oriental music I couldn't teach. And if we come to a point where I am not helpful anymore, I will say so. What I do like is learning with students, it is often the case that your students teach you new ways of thinking about music and I find that super exciting! I was lucky to travel a bit of the world playing music with different projects and musicians that I admire, I always did this playing mainly Jazz music. I have played in bars and clubs and theaters in New York, Boston, Buenos Aires, and in different cities around Switzerland, Germany, France, Holland. I was also part of several orchestras (Jazz, Tango and Rock) in Argentina and in the US. I teach beginner - intermediate - advanced levels of different topics: - how to improve technique (right hand and left hand) - how to improvise (elements of improvisation, vocabulary, phrasing, etc.) - how to visualize the fretboard - how to learn songs by ear, and how to read music (or tab) - how harmony and music theory works - specific genres such as, Jazz, Gypsy Jazz, Bossa Nova, Tango, Rock, and Fingerstyle. The lessons can be also in German (basic, so you might need a bit of patience with me!) or Spanish (that's my mother tongue) or English. They can be at my place (Wedding), all corona safe, or online via Zoom/Skype. Shoot me a message if you are interested! All the best, Francisco

Toby
Music Theory lessons, all levels and ages (in English or Russian)
Hi there, my name is Toby and I’m a professional music theory, violin and viola teacher based in Berlin. I teach in person both at students' location and at my location as well as online. As well as regular instrumental teaching and ensemble coaching of all age groups and levels, I’ve led numerous professional workshops, including ‘Music First’ and ‘Music Masters’ workshops in London and was an assistant on the Primary Arpeggione viola course and Springgrove music competition. I teach in English, Russian, French and German and am trained in a variety of methods, including Suzuki, regularly preparing students for music exams at all levels. I am currently a member of the European String Teachers’ Association, and have participated in ESTA conferences across Europe. I also regularly accompany students on the piano, and work on music theory, aural and sight reading skills for exams, including on grades in theory and academic exams across all stages. As a performing musician, I've played as a soloist in venues across Europe and participated in several international competitions, notably receiving the Barbirolli prize at the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition 2019. I was a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra in 2018, and a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain from 2014-2015, appearing on BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and a televised BBC Prom, as well as being involved in the NYO outreach programme ‘inspire’ in schools across London, including workshops and interactive performances at the Royal Festival Hall. Testimonials: Tatyana M. Toby is a fantastic teacher. He is very reliable as he is consistently organised and punctual. I constantly see progress in my child’s music skills because every lesson Toby delivers is effective and well-structured. I highly recommend him to all who wish to learn or improve on their music skills. Pamela B. Toby is really a great teacher, who teaches pieces well and teases out the feeling while playing. We particularly liked that. Good technique is one thing, but feeling the music is such an important element in music and in learning a piece of music. He also teaches theory very well! Hanna S. Toby can explain things very well and understandably, is patient and friendly and easily adapts to the level of the student More below

Anais
CLASSICAL GUITAR and COMPOSITION LESSON, for all level
I am a professional guitarist and composer, diplomaed from the Berlin superior school of music Hanns Eisler in the master of composition, from Toulouse and Montpellier conservatory and university in classical guitar, conducting, chamber music, and theory. My music has been played on several international stages and festivals In Europe and I have 8 years of teaching experience. I offer guitar lessons adapted to each level and type of personalities, from very young children to adult, beginner to advanced level. I give every student the maximum attention and follow-up for optimal progress, by preparing a customized program, always cultivating joy and lightness in learning. Indeed, the pleasure of practicing combines with the highest demands have proven their pedagogical effectiveness. I strongly believe that Talent is present in everyone, and creativity, as an art expression, is essential in our human life, it only requires regular work and a good guide to be developed. What makes my pedagogy special is the combination of relaxation exercises (breathing, body scan, body-conscious, etc..) with guitar right and left-hand technic, synchronization, and musicality development. The results are immediate and more than satisfying, as you'll finish the course fully relax, confident, and following a linear progression. If you feel ready to discover or to just go deeper in the learning of classical guitar, music theory, or composition I invite you to contact me and we'll schedule together to organize the best plan made for you. I teach both online and at my place in Berlin. Looking forward to hearing from you. musically, Anaïs
