Orchestral Percussion and Drum Kit Tuition (all levels)

As a professional freelance percussionist, I provide high-quality tuition in both percussion and drum kit from complete beginner to advanced level.
Students can work through graded syllabuses, improve existing techniques, or learn the instrument(s) as a hobby. The lessons are designed around the student. My goal as a teacher is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed.

I can also assist students who wish to/are currently studying percussion/drum kit at the university/conservatoire level.

I am DBS checked, and previous practical opportunities and experiences have also enabled me to have a greater knowledge and understanding of Safeguarding, Child Protection, and Health and Safety Policies and Procedures in the work place.

About Me

I am a freelance Percussionist and Timpanist based in Manchester, United Kingdom. I completed the prestigious GRNCM Joint Course (2:1 and Distinction) at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) and The University of Manchester between 2012-2016, before completing the MMus (Distinction) in 2017 at RNCM.
I currently teach Percussion, Drum Kit, Piano, and Music Theory in several schools in the North of England. In addition, I organize and facilitate educational music workshops in schools, and I provide private music tuition.

Education

MMus in Performance with Distinction (Royal Northern College of Music) 2017
GRNCM Joint Course Diploma with Distinction (Royal Northern College of Music) 2016
MusB (Hons) Joint Course with 2:1 (University of Manchester) 2015

Experience / Qualifications

I perform regularly as a Percussionist with a variety of different Orchestras, Ensembles, and Musical Theatre productions, including Northern Ballet, National Festival Orchestra, and Skaparis Collective. My theatre credits include; 'The Nico Project', directed by Sarah Frankcom and Maxine Peake (MIF and MIAF 2019), and 'Astley's Astounding Adventures', produced by Frazer Flintham (New Vic Theatre, 2018).
As a freelance musician, I provide high quality tuition in ABRSM Music Theory Grade 1-5 examinations. This class is designed around the student and starts preparation through the graded exam syllabus. As Grade 5 Music Theory is a compulsory examination for all ABRSM performance examinations past Grade 6, it is important that students start early and work alongside their instrumental studies. I can also assist with pre University/Conservatoire Music Theory studies (Grade 6-8). My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed, and I assign homework and practice questions at the end of every session. I am DBS checked, and previous practical opportunities and experiences have also enabled me to have a greater knowledge and understanding of Safeguarding, Child Protection, and Health and Safety Policies and Procedures in the work place.

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!

Dominic

Dominic I am a 27-year-old percussionist from Ireland with 14 years experience in percussion. I studied Professional Music Performace at the Academy of Contemporary Music just outside of London, graduating with a BA (Hons) degree. After taking tutoring and master classes with legendary drummers, such as Chad Smith (Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and Frank Tontoh (Amy Winehouse), I am well practised in every style and genre catered to your preferences. I teach every aspect of Drumming from performance and reading drum scores, to business and breaking into the music industry.

Roope
Drum lessons, learn how to play the drums, music theory etc.
I can offer 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! :)
