I have now moved to St. Albans AL4! I’m very much still teaching, please feel free to get in touch if that location can work for you. Proper website update to follow soonish…
Drum lessons in Hemel Hempstead
Hi! I’m Chris. I’m an experienced drum teacher based in Hemel Hempstead, and I teach everyone from the complete beginner up to advanced players.
Whether you want to learn the drums just for fun, or aspire to be the next big thing, I can help! I believe that rhythm is one of our most fundamental natural instincts, and that everyone has the potential to become a great drummer.
I teach people of all ages from my purpose-built teaching studio in Grovehill, Hemel Hempstead.
Here are some of the topics we could cover in our lessons:
– Reading music and other music theory
– Playing in different styles, e.g. pop, rock and jazz
– Timekeeping and playing to a click track
– Drumstick / brushes / foot techniques
– Co-ordination and limb interdependence
– Recording live music in a studio
– Composing new grooves and drum parts for songs
Don’t worry if any of that sounds intimidating! We can cover any or all of the above, and build up your knowledge bit by bit in manageable chunks at a pace that suits you. I pride myself in teaching in a relaxed and accessible way, and can mould your lesson content towards whatever it is that you want to achieve.
If you’re interested in taking exams, I can help you work through them, all the way from Grade 1 to 8. My previous students have had a 100% pass rate – mostly merits and distinctions.
