Well I’ve got to say i’ve enjoyed the break over Christmas and January. I’ve been very busy focusing on performances and my own playing.
But I’m now really looking forward to getting back into teaching in the next couple of weeks so if you’re thinking about lessons for your self or your child now is the time to get in touch.
I offer a free trial lesson to students who come to my drum studio here in Avalon. I have a fantastic teaching set up here, a full size drum kit which sounds awesome, hundreds of play along songs and charts to learn.
Lessons are tailored to each students needs with a focus on playing music and enjoying the instrument,building great technique is something that happens gradually and I try and gently coax my younger students into this rather than over loading them with too many technical exercises so as to keep them smiling. The more fun they have, the more they want to play, the better they will want to get. Simple.
Many of my students are now involved in bands playing jazz,rock,pop,fusion and in orchestras and are having a very active musical life. This is what I strive for with all my students.
It’s so nice to hear from parents that their child is performing in public and having the time of their life. One parent today thanked me as their child has just been accepted for an advanced music program due to his drumming skills. This made my day!
I’ll be fully involved with moving your drumming forward whether you’re an absolute beginner or weekend warrior. Come along and give it a try, you’ve absolutely nothing to lose!
