Information About Andy - Derby teacher
I am a drummer of 16 years experience, having toured around the world with several bands. I specialise in funk drumming, but can teach all styles from latin american to modern indie style.
I have taught privately at the International Music School in Derby for the last two years, in this time i have had over 20 pupils succesfully achieve Rock School Graded qualification, with the highest being Grade 6.
With beginners we work through rudiments as a base structure to lessons, as a solid rhythmic vocabulary is essential for progression, applying these to the drumkit as well as learning key rhythms in all styles.
For more experienced pupils I identify any weak points they may have and work to bring them in line with the rest of the skillset, setting challenging exercises to really push the student up to the next level.
With advanced pupils we work together to target specific areas to build an all round competent and confident approach to drumming with a view to getting paid professional work.
