a sample lesson

.....................................................................................................................................................................


So what makes one drum teacher different from another?

Reliability? Commitment? Passion?
Yes, of course.
Coincidentally, the very qualities of a good student :)

But apart from that, a good drum teacher will have a significant knowledge of the subject, experience and understanding in delivery to all ages, and an organised and comprehensive syllabus designed to cater to all levels of ability.

I provide the lesson below as an indication of my teaching methods.

 .....................................................................................................................................................................

The 40 Percussive Arts Society drum rudiments are a great place to focus some serious study, for any drummer at any level of ability.

Here I discuss the single paradiddle, its inversions, and its application in performance.

This lesson will be most useful for intermediate to advanced students, but it is equally relevant to the beginner to develop a basic understanding of rudimental application.

I hope you enjoy the lesson,
