Exciting Drum Lessons for All Ages & All Music Styles

My name is Jim,

I am a working musician, recording artist, composer and performer based in London.

Apart from having years of experience with performing and recording, I've also taught drum lessons since I was 16 years old.

About Me

Jim was born and raised in Arnhem, the Netherlands where first fell in love with drumming and percussion at the age of 7 after his father introduced him to latin percussion. After spending his first few years performing in local drum bands he then attended a local conservatoire from age 15 to 19, studying jazz and pop music on the drumset. After graduating he decided to pursue his musical career in London, where he graduated from the British & Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM) with an Honors Degree in Popular Music Performance in 2019.
Jim has studied with inspiring teachers such as Adam Betts (Mr Goldie), JP Bouvet (Best International drummer contest winner 2016), Tim Smart (The book of Mormon, the Specials), James Trood (AlunaGeorge), Justin Brown (Massive Attack), Andrew Mckinney (James Taylor Quartet) and Hans Eijkenaar (The Voice).

Jim has been working as a session drummer in London for over 3 years, performing, touring and recording for multiple artists in prestigious recording studios such as Abbey Road Studios and Dean Street Studios and venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, the Pizza Express Live Jazz Venue, the Hard Rock Cafe and the 02 Academy Islington. In 2019 Jim started his own contemporary jazz project called Creature., where he releases and performs his own original music frequently throughout London.

Jim started teaching children and adults at the age of 16 and developed a true passion in guiding students through their musical journey and create love and respect for the instrument. He strives to find and ignite the musical spark in each individual student. With his personal background, backed-up by his extra degree in Music Pedagogy, Jim has developed an excellent set of knowledge and intuition to work with every type of person.

Do you want to learn how to play saxophone in Amsterdam?
Music is the best way of communication in the world, the most international language and an easy way of sharing. Teaching means a lot for me; it allows me to pass on beautiful things I have learnt and at the same time to improve thanks to my students' feedback. Music and musical teaching are about joy and never-ending curiosity. My lessons are totally compiled on the student's needs, both time-wise and content-wise, and they are aimed to get quick results. We can work out many different topics together, such as learning tunes, technique, improvising, as well as approaching theory, reading, circular breathing, altissimo register and multiphonics... The lessons usually take place in my studio close by Javaplein in Amsterdam or by my house in Bos en Lommer. I work mornings and evenings as well as in the week end. Saxophone is fun! Contact me and get a first lesson as soon as possible, I am looking forward to meeting you.
