Information About Rick - Chorley teacher
This is how 3 referees rated Rick:
I'm a professional drummer and percussionist and as a performer I have played all over the world on stage and on screen. I have been fortunate to perform along side famous artists such as Elvis Presley's guitarist Scotty Moore which led to an extensive tour with The Muscle Shoals Band from Alabama whose own cv includes recordings with Aretha Franklyn, Wilson Picket, The Rolling Stones and many more. More recently I have played 21 consecutive nights at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival with the rock opera Barockestra.
Many years of experience have included a broad style of tuition from individual, small and large group tuition, co-ordinating Musical Futures projects, Wider Opportunities delivery, ensemble development and project managing large - scale percussion days and workshops. Having worked for Bolton Music Service for a number of years, I have delivered and increased provision in many primary schools, secondary schools and sixth form colleges as well as SEN schools and PRU facilities.
My vision and expectation of students is to create a passion and a drive to play and perform whilst ensuring a secure understanding of the integral part a drummer or percussionist plays within contemporary music . Annual, termly and weekly targets are set for each individual with regular assessment and appraisal. I wholly believe that preparation and experience of taking examinations are a vital area of developing discipline and determination whilst understanding that it is not a necessity for all; Iam proud to have a 99% pass rate in Trinity Rock School examination board with many pupils carry on into further education and professional work.
