Tutoring Approach:

Many students become interested in Drums from an early age just by bashing along to whatever they can lay there hands on, clapping there hands or tapping there feet in time to there favourite songs. In fact drums are the oldest and most primitive form of instrument, (even whilst we are developing in the womb we are constantly in tune to the mother’s heartbeat).

The Drums are also a very spiritual instrument that can inspire and energise us. Drumming literally wakes up and stirs the soul. Everyone innately knows how to go about drumming! There is no "right" or "wrong" way to express yourself drumming. However there are guidelines and it is helpful to study techniques, co-ordination, stickings, practical application and real world skills backed up with a thorough knowledge and understanding of the instrument, as a good teacher my joy is to bring out the very best in each student.
