Information About Lee - Leicester teacher
My name is Lee .
I am 27 years of age and I have been playing the drums for 22 years. I started having lessons at the age of 8 years at a small shop in hinckley. These first basic lessons were only on a snare drum however they gave me the insight of hand co-ordination and various rythem styles. at the age of 12 I took my drumming to a new level and started to have lessons by a professional private teacheron a one to one basis, also on a four piece kit, which gave me a huge step from a snare drum. my drumming increased very quickly and I started playing on stage with my grandad who was in a old time ball band for the back room of a social club. Being able to do this at 13 years old gave me a wide range of confidence and abillity to play songs that had slow tempos which were very hard to follow such as the fox trot beat, and the tango.
At the age of 14 I began having lessons at the drum accadomy in leicester where there i went to the next level in music. I was tought to read drum music and play rock patterns from grades 1 to 6.
I spent 6 years at the school learning advanced patterns and styles before leaving the study further in my education.
During my studies I played with a number of bands including being asked to play at a huge charity event that took place at the walkers stadium in leicester for 3000 special needs children.
I have since played in over a hundren clubs and pubs around the midlands including nottinghams royal engineers christmas party. I am now looking into taking my 8th grade in rock school music, and I wish to teach young and aged pupils how to play the drums from basic level to advanced.
I have 22 years experience in playing a drum kit and recently I have 5 years teaching experience.
I will be teaching the pupil to understand the way a drum kit works and feels. doing this I will show the student patterns, grooves, drumming home work to take home and learn. we will listen to tracks and play them back. we will learn flams fills, and solid rock beats that fit together.
