    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!

    Extra information

    I have a drum kit in my studio and some printed materials for you. Just bring some sticks if you remember! :)

    About Me

    Hi fellow rhythm lover!

    My name is Alex, originally from Croatia.
    I'm a drummer, percussionist, composer and programmer.

    I'm currently focusing on performing solo enhancing drums and percussion with electronic creations. But I'm also working as a live and studio drummer in the fields of electronic, hip-hop, jazz, pop music & more. Active as a teacher, available for workshops, Skype lessons and private lessons in Amsterdam.

    I started my musical journey playing the piano (7 years old) at a local music school but was always fascinated by rhythm. Got into playing drums when I was 16, then I realised that's gonna stay for life. I developed a deep interest in jazz music and Karnatic (South Indian) music so I decided to move to a specific place in Italy (Vicenza) where was possible to study drums and take tabla & indian music lessons. After diving deeper into jazz and playing with artists from all over the world mostly improvised music, I decided to explore a new field of interest - electronic music. Again, I found a place in Europe that offered the best education in the field of electronic (specifically live-electronics) music and that offered me the opportunity to continue my Indian studies while still playing the drums. Here in Amsterdam I had to privilege to study with some wonderful people and to connect with so many cutting-edge artists. Definitely staying here indefinitely! :)

    Composition Lesson
    Composition lessons are for anyone who wishes to compose music, for any instrument, emsemble and/or electronics music. My teaching method combines various approaches and styles, supporting practice with theoretical knowledge, and most important developing creativity and helping the student in making their imagionary visions come real. For each student a different palate of tools is offered, according to the student's musical wishes and ambitions. I teach the basis of western-music composition - theory, harmony, counterpoint, score-reading, solfege, rhythm, analysis and more. Further I suggest broad overview of world, jazz, pop, new/contemporary music, various styles in electronic music (popular and experimental), improvisatory compositions, graphic notation, text and game pieces, music for theater, film and dance and interdicsiplinary works which combine music with other art fields.

    Vinicius
    Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
    Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am completing my Masters in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for almost 10 years now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, you will receive the material to study at your own time and a study schedule that you will try to follow. During our 60-minute class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time.

    Andrea
    Classical Guitar Lessons from Conservatorium-Trained Teacher
    Hi, I’m Andrea! I’m a professional classical guitar performer and educator from Sydney, Australia. I have been developing my music teaching business for over 8 years, through which I teach a wide range of styles, levels, and ages. Lessons are specifically tailored to meet the needs of each student, whether the focus is on classical guitar performance, chords, pop/rock, jazz/blues, or Spanish-style fingerpicking. Music theory, composition, songwriting, improvisation, sight-reading, and preparation for high school exams or University auditions are all options that can be incorporated into lessons. I have plenty of experience with young children and teenagers as well as adults, from complete beginners to advanced players. My teaching philosophy is holistic in that I strive to help my students become well-rounded musicians with a range of listening, reading, improvisation, and analytical skills, while of course carefully choosing repertoire that will cater to the student’s taste as well as their abilities. Pop/rock guitar, blues and jazz improvisation are also options as well as classical training.
