One-to-One and Online Lessons
Having been a self taught drummer I can honestly say that starting to take lessons with John was one of the best musical decisions I have ever made!!!! Within 6 months of working with John I could already use a far better vocabulary and the guys in the band can confirm this. John is an excellent listener and will make sure you get the best use from your time. He is also one of the nicest guys and makes the whole process fun and enjoyable. He has helped me out with technique, vocabulary, my own music where I've been stuck and the absolute most important thing...... How to practice to make the best use of my time between classes. The lesson plan is well structured according your abilities with a view to achieving your long term goals.
If your thinking of taking lessons I would highly recommend John.
If you are completely new to drumming or have only played for a short amount of time, then a beginners lesson is where to start! The first lesson will involve working out what you would like to achieve from the lessons as well as learning basic beats and fills.
Been playing for a while already? Need to brush up on some skills? Then your first lesson will be an assessment. After identifying where you're at, we will then discuss your strengths and weaknesses and how we will go about achieving your personal goals.
The initial lessons focus on having fun and getting your child comfortable with the instrument, while listening to and playing along to music. Lessons start from the age of 6. Half hour lessons are recommended up to the age of 8.
