Having started at an early age, I believe that you are never too young (or too old) to start playing the drums - as long as you can reach the pedals!
Starting with basic beats, getting everything moving at the same time, basic rudiments and fills, you'll be playing some nice sounding grooves a lot sooner than you might think.
Maybe playing drums is something you've always wanted to do? Or maybe you just want to try a couple of lessons to see how you get on?
Please get in touch and we can discuss you requirements.
If you are already past the basics of rudiments, technique and co-ordination, then I can help you advance by looking at styles, genres, phrasing, further technique and building up a vocabulary of rhythms, beats, fills and grooves.
I encourage pupils to point me to music which they like, or even bring/send me recordings of specific beats or fills from songs that they want to learn. I can work out how something is played and then teach it to you.
Education for advanced players I prefer to call "coaching" - once you reach a certain "ability level" it becomes subjective - but it can be very beneficial to have someone watch you play and suggest ways in which you can hone your skills. Posture, alternative techniques and general musicianship are things we never stop learning about and improving.
With my recording facility I can also put you under "red light" conditions - very useful practice and a great way to analyse your playing, groove and quantise on-screen afterwards.
If you are a drummer (or not!) who is interested in the process of recording and producing drums then I can help.
Recording drums can be a very frustrating experience, but often the solutions are minor physical adjustments or a slight change in the way we think about recording such a complex set of instruments.
I can teach the entire process from the ground-up, help you with specific areas you wish to know more about, or troubleshoot problems you may be having with your recording or production methods.
