Information About Nikita - West Drayton teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Nikita:
I am a passionate, energetic, fun teacher with a strong background in music performance and creation. Drumming has always been my biggest passion in life. As a young child I would spend hours on a homemade drum kit of pots and pans! Whilst I have the formal ABRSM/Trinity grades*, and a 2:1 degree I don't think it matters as much as the ability to inspire, deeply connect and channel passion into students. Learning absolutely must be fun to be sustainable!
I have taught drums for 6 years to a wide range of ages. From children aged 5-12 to teenagers and adults and have extensive experience teaching group rock club lessons to children.
With a 2:1 BA Honours degree in Music Technology from the University of Surrey, I have a vast knowledge in music production software and techniques. I specialise in using Apple products and programs and can guide you in producing tracks in Garage Band, Logic Express or full Logic Studio for music GCSE, A Level or for your own personal interest.
I also offer songwriting lessons where I will guide you through the elements of making and creating a song. We will look at chord progressions, lyrical themes and the best ways to create catchy memorable melodies.
Every student learns in different ways so I find it absolutely essential to adapt the ways I teach in order to suit the students learning needs. There is often more than one way to reach a goal, and there is often more than one right answer. We'll work together on finding the best answer and goal for you. Most of all I cannot wait to share the passion I have for music with you.
