Tutoring Experience:

- Japhy is a drum instructor with over 20 years experience of playing live in various band situations and over 8 years teaching experience of all ages from 4 to 65+.

- Classroom/group teaching experience.

- With my experience of playing live music in a variety of different band situations coupled with my music education, I am able to apply the practical skills and knowledge that I have learnt in to lessons for students who are interested in learning for fun, writing original music, exploring new concepts, collaborating with other musicians or gaining their Trinity/Rock school grades at all levels.

Tutoring Approach:

- I provide one-to-one/online tuition offering guidance to students in groove, technique, rhythm and time keeping as well as boosting performance confidence.

- I endeavour to keep my approach interesting, fun and educational to develop students' drumming and musicianship to a higher level whether you're a beginner, intermediate or advanced player.

- Lessons are tailored to suit the individual needs and goals of the student and are aimed to teach at a pace that works for their particular skill level to ensure the most effective results.

- Concepts covered include: foundational techniques, rudimental studies (and how to apply rudiments in unique and interesting ways to the drum set), coordination studies, technique, linear phrasing, improvisation, time keeping patterns, soloing ideas, dynamic control, four way co-ordination and sight-reading.

- Musical styles covered include: Pop, Rock, Indie, Funk, Reggae, Drum and Bass, Modern electronic genres, Jazz, Hip Hop, R&B, Punk, Metal, World music and Latin.
