Information About Christopher - King's Lynn teacher
I'm an established drum and percussion teacher and player with over 30 years of experience. I teach from a purpose-built drum studio near the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. I teach drums using two kits side by side and using microphone and headphones for instruction and music playback. I am an experienced performing professional in popular, rock and classical music and I play drums, orchestral percussion and tuned percussion (all of which I have in my studio).
I love drumming. I play a lot of instruments but only teach drums because of the amount of fun it is.
I've taught drums for 30 years and keep up to date with drumming styles including Rock and Gospelchops. I am a fully trained and qualified teacher with up to date qualifications. I am a University Lecturer in Music and I have have experience and success in working with students with learning issues including autism, dyslexia and ADS. Lessons are fun and very rewarding.
I do work with students to prepare for Graded Exams (usually Trinity Guildhall) and to prepare for College and University applications. I prepare students for the theory parts of grades and, if you want to torture yourself, I do teach theory.
I am an experienced and published composer and a professional conductor and offer tuition in conducting.
I will find the way that you learn. Whichever way you learn best, we'll get to it. Everyone can play to a track by the end of the first lesson. Whether you learn best by watching and copying, listening and repeating or counting and doing … we'll make it work out between us. Learning is a partnership ! It's a very positive and gentle approach to making music.
I have a background in CBT and NLP which I have researched as part of my post-graduate work. I find this essential when teaching.
