My teaching method is of coure adjusted case by case. Tho the tenets of listening, copying, adjusting , practica are all important. I will work from the famous book named progressive steps to sincopation for the modern drummer. Which is a great foundation for reading and getting to know the drum set.
I teach the fundamental tools to give you the ability to approach any musical situation with confidence. Rather than teach 1000+ patterns, I show you how to rhythmically analyse any pattern to decode and learn for yourself.
My lessons are hands on and a safe space for experimenting and learning. I keep my lessons fun and informative, moulding my lessons around the abilities and interests of my students. I encourage my students to learn to hold rhythm, jam with other musicians, develop their own style of playing.
My lessons are divided in three topics: Reading/writing music, learning different styles from jazz, rock and funk to afro-cuban rythms, and playing along drummless tracks and metronome.
my teaching method is i will first show you then get you to repeat the beat then build on speed, technique, rythem and also both reading and writing of drum notation and sight reading sheet music.
I base my classes on each students prefrence of genre. I will be able to select and create certain exercises to aid you in taking your style of playing however far you want.
My teaching is based on approaching each student individually and tailor programs to suit both their interest and their level of playing. I do believe in learning to read rhythm notation. I also use a large amount of playalong (pedagogic) music.
Most important factor is to ensure the lessons are always fun and entertaining. I have a very adaptive approach as each student learns very differently, especially when it comes to a creative outlet .
Coaching you all the way from practice room to Stage Im flexible to help to customise the class "just for the student needs" . I do play other instruments and i will be coaching you how to perform along with percussion /guitar/bass / keyboard so while you learn we can build your own confidence to play with other musicians or jam with your friends from day one.
I am of the strong belief that everyone learns differently, I think it is key to asses a students learning style and adapt immediately. I am very easy going and patient, but also persistent and encouraging (I love seeing progress and how happy it makes students).
Learn to read drumming music, play various styles of music, such as Jazz, Latin, Dance, Blues, Rock, etc. like a pro. Soon you will be able to form your own group, provided you are serious about becoming a musician. Remember, practice makes perfect.
My teaching method is that of beginning from the basics, Rudiments, Time Signatures and Rhythms. All three of these are what help to make you a better drummer, and allow you freedom whilst you play. I am an ambassador for learning genres of all kinds, as it is important for a drummer to be diverse in what she/he plays.
I have part of a team of trainer/assessors and also have lead teams of educators in both online, distance students and classroom or face to face settings providing personalised advice and support to students whilst being sensitive to their needs. I have a graduate diploma in counselling which helps me provide the best service through good communications and relationship building.
If you want to learn the basics, I will print out rudiments and we can go through them. I can demonstrate to you how to properly do them as well. I specialise in snare drum so rudiments and snare pieces can be looked at.
It's all about good communication and teaching precisely what each student needs to improve. I identify those needs and focus on them, as well as ensuring areas the student wants to concentrate on are also covered. Helping with other subjects, such as tuning and lit care are also covered.
As a drummer, tabla player and percussionist, flexibility is mandatory. It’s essential for teaching and learning too. Some students like to focus on exams and grading, others want to be able to play in bands, and a few just want to play the fastest double bass drum rolls in the world! No one wants an environment in which attention isn’t paid to the students likes and dislikes.
ANDY TURCO -Drummer- PURPOSE: Playing has always has to be about: sharing emotions, express feelings, have fun, being curious, pushing musicians boundaries.
My methodology will differ depending on the student and will be tailored to suit their needs. I will teach the fundamentals, but let the student lead the steps in their direction, providing relevant materials and action plans for their goals.
Fun, focussed, clear, engaging, creative. My students need to have access to their instrument to practice. I like using my material when studying at Drummers Collective in New York but am open to suggestions. I am particularly strong on Latin Jazz, Afro Cuban Rhythms, West African Rhythms and exploring polyrhythms on drum kit, percussion and even a combination of the two i.e.
I excel in the construction of effective and individually tailored lesson planning involving a variety of different working assignments tailored to the individual abilities of each student focussing closely but not limited to: Rhythm Flair Playing in a band environment Coordination Rudimentary Discipline Sight Reading Tempo Dynamics Timbre I ensure that each student is fully...
I am an experienced teacher and I tailor lessons to suit individual needs. I am happy to teach pupils from the age of five upwards, and any ability level from complete beginner to experienced professionals looking to learn specific skills.
I'm a drum kit, percussion and tuned percussion teacher with 25 years experience in both private and state education. I have also worked as a peripatetic teacher for the local authority. I'm use to a wide age range (5-65 years), varied abilities and am adaptable to personal areas of study and styles of music.
I primarily teach private lessons, but am open to a group setting. My lessons are very tailored to an individual's needs: once I've assessed someone's playing I have a very good idea of what they need to do to become a well-rounded player.
I myself have been a part of a lot of different classes where I have been taught the foundations of the drums, whether it was in private lessons, or in my music class at school. As I've grown as a musician I have realized how important the foundation is. My lessons will do just that. With every client, I will assess the foundation, and see if it strong enough to be built up.
Students dictate the general direction and focus of practical exercises, selected from thematic area's like independence, inter-dependence, performance stamina, consistency, and along side become equipped with the digital skills needed to collaborate, record and produce professional sounding mixes using Reaper. I only have two standards. Good posture. Good timekeeping.
The most important aspect of teaching music for me is making sure the student understands the concepts and bigger picture of the topics and techniques being taught and how to apply and practice them in a fun, but constructive way.
Over the years of experience I've had, I felt hearing and feeling a piece of music really allows any musicians to learn without realising. Collecting musical ideas from various genres around the world is our source of information although everybody needs a guide. My primerial focus will always be on music and feel, technique and performance.
I strongly believe in sharing my experience as a professional musician to my fellow music students with the strong essence of theory. I focus on clarity, tone, and technique than anything else at the beginning and then as per the student's interest I guide the student in the specific direction of performance and advanced concepts.
Lessons are fun and challenging. Former students include Jen Ledger/Skiller, Liam/The Enemy, Joe Clegg/Ellie Goulding. No subjects are off limits but I will help create logical learning programmes to maximise your development. No short cuts, just proven methods that build success. Written materials and recordings available for each lesson to reduce wasted practice time.
I approach the teaching of Jazz Drums from a musical point of view. My mantra is, that the aim of the game is to play music and my job is to give you the tools to do so. We will cover various techniques and a wide range of repertoire.
