Hey gang, I'm offering a discount on Skype lessons for the new year. If you ever wondered what the hell I'm talking about with any of the stuff on my blog, or in my forum comments, now's your chance for elucidation. Hit me up.
I'm based in North London (N11) and have a kit and a studio.
Looking for a good drummer who can focus on technique and independence - aka Get a GOOD sound out of the kit, whilst playing sensibly and not hurting yourself or punishing your drum heads!
If he/she has inclination towards post-rock and metal, progressive rock/progressive metal would be a plus.
I'm looking for a few lessons to correct my technique and get me on a solid exercise plan. I can then work on it on my own for a while before taking on more permanent lesson plans
Hey folks! Starting up a studio here in Brooklyn, willing to travel as well. Looking for beginning/intermediate students in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Jersey, etc. Studied classical percussion and jazz through college, and more jazz at The Drummer's Collective. I have percussion performance degree from the University of Montana.
If anyone is considering to learn how to play drums through online video lessons, then you may consider this. My colleague, Brendan Bache, is a drum instructor, who teaches 'Rock and Pop Drum Kit' at beginner and intermediate levels at an online music school called Liberty Park Music (LPM).
We have published all lessons for the beginner's course. We're currently publishing weekly lessons for the Intermediate courses (at the moment, we're on the topic of 'Snare Drum Articulation.') You can sign up for a free 30-day trial to give our courses a go.
Just to give you a little teaching background about Brendan - Brendan's first teaching experience was teaching drums to kids in a music school in Northwich, Cheshire and he has since spent a year teaching English as a foreign language in China. Since graduating from the University of Leeds with a 1st class honours degree in Popular and World Music in 2013, Brendan has built up a substantial student base across West Yorkshire and boasts a 100% exam pass rate, with many students going on to perform professionally and succeed academically.

I’m looking for some recommendations for percussionists willing to teach who can do Skype lessons with my daughter Age 12. We was giving 2 Balafons (West African) and also a Ranet Thum (Thia) Xylophone as she plays in orchestra as percussionist, she can play the Xylophone, Piano, Timps and Snare. Orchestra percussion is a rather dying art in rural England... and West African and Thia cultural based percussion is extremely rare this far from a big city so hoping the digital age can help bridge the gap.
Im also on the lookout for any sheet music for either of those 2 instruments, especially if there is any audio that goes with them so we can make sure it sounds right
Additionally I’m starting to collect for her tribal percussion instruments from around the globe; if anyone has any languishing in lofts like the 2 Balafons we was given do reach out and we can discus.
Any suggestions and recommendation of people I could reach out to be most helpful!
Skype/Zoom Drum Lessons Available
Over 25 Years experience
I have many years experience and spent 3 years learning with Bob Armstrong, working hard on the Moeller methods that he taught.
Among the methods he showed me are several very practical, 'real world' techniques that I haven't seem taught in any Youtube movies currently available. Learning the Moeller method as Bob taught it totally revolutionized my playing - I cannot recommend these methods enough!
I also teach Rockschool exams, have never had a failure in 20 years of preparing students, and have many pre-prepared mp3 practice rhythms I can dropbox you.
I believe myself to be a very practical, clear, patient teacher and have always had good feedback from my students, some of whom have stayed with me for 5-7 years.
I'm offering a free introductory lesson, therafter lessons are £26/ph during the current economic climate.
I also teach music technology, particularly Logic Pro (if you use it I can also show you how to get the best out of it for drum practice).
Please PM if you're interested.
