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!

Noam
Drums Lessons in English and Hebrew - Noam - Professional Drummer, Teacher and Producer
Hello everyone! My name is Noam and I am a professional drummer, drum teacher and music producer, living in Brussels. I am available for drum lessons in Brussels for all levels, beginner to advanced. Learning drums is extremely fun and satisfying! It involves the entire body and the mind, challenging in many different ways and extremely rewarding. While it can be demanding to learn an instrument, it can be as easy as you want it to be. Our lessons can be designed to fit your personal goal. In the lessons we will play songs, study technique and reading and learn different genres of music - all while having fun! I have been teaching for over 12 years. I am very passionate about teaching music, I believe it has the power to change lives, and also helps with just putting a smile on your face :)

Roope
Drum lessons, learn how to play the drums, music theory etc.
I can provide 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.

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! :)

Achille
Drums / music lessons all styles / all levels

I offer you my services as a drummer but also more broadly as a passionate and semi-professional musician. I offer drum lessons but also rhythm lessons (even if you are not a drummer or percussionist!), For all styles and all levels. I can also help you with composition, harmony or piano, preferably for middle level students. I have many experiences as a musician: many groups of different styles (reggae, hip hop, funk, rock, jazz, French song), and also as a private teacher or in music school, individual or in group . I also have many experiences of concerts, live or studio recordings, master classes, internships, jam sessions ... I will be very happy to share my passion, my profession, in caring and listening, working the theory in close connection with the practice, in order to have fun but also to become autonomous! Do not hesitate to contact me for any information or other requests! Important: I have a room located in Etterbeek, or I would prefer to give my lessons, but I can possibly come to your place. Hope to meet you. Achille.

Nina
Drum lessons in Amsterdam or remotely (for beginners and intermediate level)
Hello, I am Nina from Amsterdam. Teaching drums and drums is a great passion of mine and I would like to share that with you! I hope to be able to create lessons with you that match what you enjoy. After many requests from parents to give drum lessons for his or her children, I now have my own studio to give drum lessons. Adults are of course also welcome! :) The studio is located in Amsterdam Noord (NDSM square) with two professional drum kits and sound system. The lessons can also be followed via ZOOM. I play in several bands myself and will be able to transfer the experience I brought to different genres in the following techniques: - Stick technique - Brushes - Creativity - Hand technique - Improvisation - Timing - Relaxed position - Drum notation - New fills - Grooves I have performed in many different cities with my bands. We were also in the final of the Rob Acda Award last year and we have a lot of airplay at KINKFM. I will also occasionally invite another musician (s) if the need arises so that you can learn to play with them. Playing along with other musicians you learn to master your own instrument!

English version (Lessons in French, English and Spanish == Dutch and Italian also possible but not the same proficiency languagewise ;-) Hello, First of all, I'm very fond of music in general and will (I think) always be. I played Cello for ten years (3- 14) and then decided to switch to drums.

Over the years, I played with many bands such as Moaning Cities, Peter Kernel, Mccandless. ( Australian Band, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, France,...). I mainly studied with Dominique Hamet and the numerous drummers I had a chance to meet along the path. (Agostini method) Besides, I have been working on developing an instinctive method so as to teach complex concepts in the easiest way possible. Can't wait to start ! See you soon, Pierre Want to play drums ? Pierre Stick Control Utilisation de vidéo, enregistrement de l'élève possible. Je suis batteur semi-professionnel : Moaning Cities and Peter Kernel.
