DonPrivate drum lessons for all levels, young and old
Looking for an experienced private drum teacher? I teach drums one-on-one in both Leiden and Katwijk aan Zee. I strive to keep my lessons as effective and enjoyable as possible. During the lessons we focus on different rhythms, fills, drum techniques, music notation and how to practice and be creative. Of course we also play songs and you are welcome to suggest songs you want to learn yourself. Once you've mastered a song we'll make an audio recording for yourself to reflect on and to share with others.
On Mondays and Wednesdays I teach drums in Leiden, on the other days you can follow my lessons in Katwijk.

HaraldDrum lessons, (technique and songs), beginners to advanced
Lesson is given on location or at home (if you have a drum kit), and your first lesson is always free, because you have to be able to determine if you like drumming and you want me as a teacher.
Drum lessons (giving) is always fun and educational. You learn in addition to technique (the correct (sitting) posture, stick control and the 'rudiments' basic patterns such as the familiar 'roffel' (double-stroke-roll) and the 'paradiddle' - also the importance of counting, dynamics, reading notes and timing After all, you will all need them if you want to continue (with a band or just for yourself).
- How long does it take before I become a drummer?
Two answers: a few hours, and a lifetime. You will see that you can play nice things in no time, but also that top drummers in the world, such as Phil Collins, Cesar Zuiderwijk, Dave Lombardo or Simon Phillips, learn new things every day (and happy).
- Am I too old to start?
You're never too old,
- Do I have a sense of rhythm?
You can learn rhythm feeling. I have NOT been able to teach anyone. - Is there a best drummer in the world?
It is about fun, and there is no podium or medal, only thousands of colleagues who are doing very well.
- Is drumming only something for men?
I do not think so! Take a look at Sheila E. or Cindy Blackman;)
