Information About Alex - Crewe teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Alex:
My early years of playing were completely self-taught, though my interest in various styles of music encouraged me to start having formal lessons and become involved with several bands. During secondary school, I played in the Service Children's Education concert and jazz band in Germany whilst also performing in bands formed with friends. I completed my Trinity Guildhall Drum Kit Grade 8 at the age of 18.
At Keele University I have had the chance to study under one of the UK's top drum tutors, Malcolm Garrett, who currently teaches at Birmingham Conservatoire. Malcolm was taught by legendary drum educator Jim Chapin. I am currently performing with a Jazz/Fusion band called 'The Chameleon', which was formed at university with fellow music graduates.
Whilst at university I began teaching drum kit at Ashley Music School in Staffordshire. I have been teaching drum kit to children and adults since 2015. I tailor the drum kit lessons as each student has different needs and aspirations whether that is simply just to play along to their favourite music or with the specific aim of taking graded exams. Teaching students of varying backgrounds and ages has been hugely rewarding and helped my own personal and professional development.
Ultimately the lessons will be built around you. Perhaps you would like to enhance your technique, build your drum vocabulary, work through graded exams or just be able to play that song you love.
