Information About Jonathan - Waltham Forest teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Jonathan:
I am a multi-award winning drummer. I graduated from Leeds college of music with a first class honours degree in Jazz performance. I have been awarded the John Scheerer Prize for Kit drums, the Sam Hood Rosebowl for outstanding performance, the Yamaha Jazz scholarship and the Sir Elton John prize. I am currently studying on the Masters course at the Royal academy of Music in Jazz percussion. As a performer I have played with high profile musicians in prestigious venues. These include Birmingham Symphony Hall, Wakefield Jazz, the Royal Albert Hall and the 606 jazz club in Chelsea.
I have taught in a range of different situations. In my one to one teaching I have tutored people of all abilities, ranging from beginners to advanced musicians. I have also taught larger groups in a workshop style environment.
My approach to tuition is very open. I address technical issues in order to prevent the individual from injuring themselves and also to help to build facility on the instrument. I am fluent in all genres of music and specialise in Jazz. I tailor my lessons to the individual and their musical tastes. I am able to provide the student with exercises, as well as looking at specific songs and if desired I can teach the reading of musical notation.
