Tutoring Approach:

My lessons orientate towards practical applications both music theory and drum concepts/technique (such as Sight Reading, Rhythm Studies, Independence Exercises, Moeller Technique, Polyrhythms, Hand Techniques, Inner Clock, etc) helping students to get skills required to play any styles of music or to pass any Grade exam.
All of these elements are also combined with the study of a specific musical style, chosen by students or me depending on the topic of study. Each style of music will be learnt by learning songs from specifics artists and I will also feature a short historical introduction of its cultural origins and most influential movements to help students to gain a wider perspective of understanding and appreciation.
On top of this, i will also teach students methods of relaxation before and during practice or performances.
