Information About Jamie - Hillingdon teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Jamie:
I'm a working drummer and percussionist in London doing studio and live work. The work I do is quite diverse covering Folk, Blues, Country, Americana, Soul, Rock and Reggae. Music is my biggest passion and I play my instruments because I love to play music, to make people dance and move and just feel good. It's this that I base my teaching on.
I've been teaching for 6 years. In this time I've taught kids and adults alike. Some have been total beginners whilst others seasoned players who just needed a little tweaking or inspiration.
I teach drum lessons and cajon lessons. We'll also cover other percussion like shakers, bongos, congas and tambourine as you progress.
My approach to lessons is to keep it fun, no pressure, no stress because this to me takes the fun out of learning something that is fundamentally to be enjoyed. I want my students to enjoy and be passionate about their instrument, not feel like they have to do it. I teach my students not to just play rhythms, but play them with feel and dynamics. Anyone can learn to play, I believe that, I'll give you the tools to express yourself with your instrument and have a load of fun in the process.
