Personal Description:

I am a freelance drummer and teacher and have been performing music in a range of styles across the UK and Europe for the past 15 years. This includes professional samba bands, rock bands, studio work and many more.

As a teacher, I have covered many areas of music education. Since finishing my Jazz performance degree at the Licinio Refice Music Conservatory in 2010 I have been teaching extensively in many schools. As well as teaching one to one students ranging from beginner to post grade 8, I have led many workshops in a variety of genres. This includes latin, brazilian, jazz, funk, rock and many others. I make sure my students cover the basics of all major genres of drumming. I have taught whole class projects with children as young as five up to adult age. I have a lot of experience working with the Rockschool syllabus.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching in two different countries and working with students from all social backgrounds has made my communication skills very fluent. I am able to assess whether a student is a visual or aural learner and I always make sure to listen to the pupil’s requests. I often set work for the students that are not directly percussion based but increases their kinaesthetic learning. For example, encouraging the student to use their weaker hand in their day to day lives allows them to develop equal dexterity with both hands.
