    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! :)

    About Me

    There's nothing more important to me than being in the now, forgiving yourself for any mistakes you made and always looking forwards without any dwelling whatsoever.

    Jazz/Soul/Rock/Pop drummer Ricky Lawson once said to me in 2010 "If life gives you a thousand reasons to cry, you give life a thousand reasons to smile." And that's been my personal motto ever since. :)

    My teaching contains a lot of self-motivations, as they're vital for today's current times.

    Klavierunterricht / Piano lessons. All levels are welcome to join.
    In my style of teaching, I approach the challenges together with my students, working as a team. This way, the study progress allows for an individual pace while ensuring understanding due to frequent and implicit feedback. Having fun and learning exemplary pieces are considered as necessary as training technical fundamentals and musical understanding. The entire program is individually composed to meet each student’s interests and needs, so that any level and kind of student is ensured to find a fit. `` Learning the piano is a fascinating lifelong process. It can be compared to learning a new language from the very beginning, step by step. I love guiding students, who share the same passion with me through this wonderful experience of self-discovery. All levels and ages (6 -100 years old) are welcome to my class`

    This Piano Instruction offers a program for beginners and intermediates as a package deal for students who are more serious and want to dedicate more time to learning piano. As a beginner, you will learn basic piano techniques and practices, and immediately start learning songs that will enforce and progress those techniques. By the end of the program, you will be able to read and play sheet music and have a much greater understanding of music in general. Those who are past the beginner level will start lessons that focus on learning more advanced pieces to further strengthen their skills. You may also choose to learn your favorite songs in this program. The goal here is to give you the practice techniques and confidence to be able to perform solo piano pieces. **YOUR LESSONS** You may choose to follow my piano/music theory program, learn to play your favorite songs, or even take lessons just to learn chords. I’m happy to work with my students to give them the lessons they want and the skills they will cherish.

    Oscar
    Violin tuition, Piano tuition and composition/ improvisation instructor
    I have been teaching violin and piano for a number of years and have recently made the transition to teaching online! I was trained at the Royal Northern College of Music and I am very happy to teach all ages and skill sets on both Violin and Piano. While being classically trained, I have interests in many different genres of music, I run and play with a Gypsy Jazz band, a tango duo and a Ceilidh band and I have strong love of Eastern European folk and Klezmer. Even if I'm not familiar with a certain genre i'm very happy to learn new things, so don't be worried about bringing me unusual pieces of music, or even your own compositions. I have found that teaching is constant a learning curve and no two students are the same, and its always fun to experience something new!

    Lise

    Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.

    Nina
    Drum lessons in Amsterdam or remotely (for beginners and intermediate level)
    Hello, I am Nina from Amsterdam. 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! :) I hope to be able to create lessons with you that match what you enjoy. The studio is located in Amsterdam - Schinkelbuurt with two professional drum kits and sound system. If this is too far or for someone else, classes at home and / or online are also possible! 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!
