Information About Mark - Bedford teacher
This is how a referee rated Mark:
I am a Professional Freelance Drummer currently residing in Bedfordshire.
I work locally - running a successful Jazz residency at the**Removed By Admin** Pub (**Web Address Removed**) as well as playing around the Country with different musicians, bands, events.
My professional experience ranges from playing in Orchestra's for Saga UK & Royal Caribbean International Cruise ships.
Playing in the pit band for different Musicals/ Theatre Shows. Jazz small groups, Big Bands (including The National Youth Jazz Orchestra's second band 09-11) and Top 40 Function bands (for parties and corporate events)
I enjoy playing and listening to a vast array of music, especially the Big Band/ Swing era's of Jazz as well as the 60s & 70s Soul/ R&B & Funk music.
I have taught privately for over 6 years, in between my studies at School/A-Level and whilst studying for my Degree.
I currently teach a number of private students at my house or their homes around Bedfordshire.
I am always happy to take on new enthusiastic students whether they are complete beginners or hoping to develop their skills at a more advanced level.
Over the years I have studied with some of the Top tutors in the Country including Pete Riley & Dave Hassell, which has not only helped me to develop as a musician but also in my approach to teaching and passing on knowledge!
My approach is to teach around the Students interests. Music, first and foremost has to be fun and enjoyable so this is my priority.
I will structure lessons around the student and lessons will include key elements of technique, rudiments & sight reading.
Over the past few years of studying and playing I have developed a strong foundation in many areas of music. This has enabled me to succeed on the cruise ships where you have to play an array of musical styles to a high level with minimal preparation.
