I teach drum kit in a number of schools in and around London and Essex, I teach my own syllabus which is influenced from my own studies as a student but also from my own professional experience and also includes respected books. I do teach the Trinity and Rockskool graded systems if students wish to go through these and my students have a 100% distinction pass. Along with teaching in schools, so you could say that I have a passion for education! I have a clear DBS, and level 3 Child Protection Certificate too.
My studio is in Rainham - Essex, and all sessions are 1:1 and can be booked in 30 or 60 minute blocks. I don't offer home tuition if you're local to my studio as all the facilities you or your son/daughter will ever need is within my studio and has been heavily invested in so you get the most out of your lessons.
Home tuition is only available in the North Essex areas on the designated days stated. Weekend tuition is currently completely full but I do have a waiting list, if you would like to be added to this please let me know by email along with your details.
I teach a range of ages and abilties - including children and adults with Special Educational Needs (SEN), Autism and Aspergers. Lessons can always be adapted - drum lessons (or any music lesson) are for everybody. Drumming is an amazing mind and body work out for anyone and everyone, and I have helped hundreds of people from all kinds of backgrounds.
I am the . My role there is to use music to develop and raise attainment, build self esteem and confidence, and to help young people to nurture social relationships. Music Mentoring should be a fun way for students to explore, make mistakes and learn so they can grow. There are different forms of mentoring. Some points to consider – The form of the mentoring should be chosen for the specific context e.g. working with young people who have difficulties around their social and group skills, a choice of group mentoring may hold the key to these young people’s development. Alternatively, working with young people on their own creativity 1 to 1 in a studio (classic mentoring) may be useful in helping them find a positive identity.
Some evidence of improvement (not just in music) are;
Social and cultural connections
Cooperation and strategies for problem solving
There is compelling academic and experiential evidence that playing and studying music can improve and helps any area of life - music should be a daily activity for everyone.
