Personal Description:

I am Tomás **Removed By Admin**, an experienced live and studio drummer available as a private tutor. My experience ranges from teaching young beginners to mature drummers who need to polish their playing.

I've been drumming for over 20 years and have now recorded and gigged with multiple bands, some of which I am the co-founder and co-songwritter for. Styles of music I have performed include rock, funk, psychedelia, afrobeat, disco, dance rock, electro, grunge, metal, blues, latin, and samba. In November 2014 I took part in Everything Everything's "Chaos To Order" Residency.

I have studied under the following teachers:
- Dave Hassell (Royal Northern College of Music)
- Richard Jupp (Elbow)
- Bryan Hargreaves (Royal Northern College of Music)
- Gareth Hughes (University Of Salford)

I am a prospective postgraduate student at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Tutoring Experience:

It is paramount that we all follow the government's advice during these difficult times. I have now started offering online tuition and I am happy to say that all lessons so far have gone very well. Please get in touch for more details

I have been teaching 1-on-1 lessons for 9 years. I also have 5 years experience leading drum and percussion workshops. Organizations I have worked with include:
- Brighter Sound
- One Education
- Z-Arts
- TiPP
- Youth Music
- Global Grooves

I am CRB certified.

I have taught one-on-one lessons to kids as young as 7 but also to adults in their 50s and 60s. I am aware that everyone is different and therefore lessons need to be individually tailored to make sure each student is both enjoying themselves and learning.

I will teach you the basics of drumming in an approachable way to make it enjoyable from the start.

I can improve your technique, groove, feel, tone, articulation, dynamics, stage performance, vocabulary, listening, and reading. All this so you can become a better musician, not just a drummer. I also like to teach in a way that empowers you to teach yourself in the future.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe everyone learns the most when they are allowed to make their own mistakes. An example of this is that students shouldn't just be told something is wrong, sometimes it is better to allow them to do it the wrong way first before pointing out why it is wrong and then pointing them in the right direction.
