Professional Drum Teacher in Box Hill Victoria

I will come to your house and give you or your kids professional drum lessons at a reasonable price.

The drum  lessons will be customized to suit you level and where you want to be, musically.

I have been playing drums for 15 years and completed my Bachelor of Applied Music (Performance) at Box Hill Institute in 2016. I also have experience with AMEB drum examinations having achieved Honours in the two highest levels of the Contemporary Popular Music course.

Although I have been teaching for three years I have gained lots of experience with students ranging in age from 4 to 50+ and pride myself on developing lesson content and my teaching approach to each individual student. I have experience with disabled children.

I am happy to advise on purchase of instuments if you would like some help.

Whether you want to improve your technique, learn to play along to your favourite songs or even learn to play along with friends or other musicians I can help you achieve your goals.

My approach to teaching is based on the following principles:

  • A strong understanding of the basics including grip, position (of you and the drums!) and rudiments.
  • Applying basic concepts musically and contextually around the drum kit.
  • Building a strong sense of rhythm and time through regular use of a metronome and understanding basic music notation.
  • Discovering a student’s individual style through investigating their music tastes and what they enjoy playing on the drums.
  • Developing healthy practice habits and helping students get what they want out of their lessons.

I am confident teaching beginner to advanced students in a vast array of styles including:

  • Rock
  • Funk
  • Soul
  • Jazz
  • Latin
  • Reggae
  • Drum and bass
  • Big band
  • Country
