Most important factor is to ensure the lessons are always fun and entertaining. I have a very adaptive approach as each student learns very differently, especially when it comes to a creative outlet .
My teaching is based on approaching each student individually and tailor programs to suit both their interest and their level of playing. I do believe in learning to read rhythm notation. I also use a large amount of playalong (pedagogic) music.
I am of the strong belief that everyone learns differently, I think it is key to asses a students learning style and adapt immediately. I am very easy going and patient, but also persistent and encouraging (I love seeing progress and how happy it makes students).
Coaching you all the way from practice room to Stage Im flexible to help to customise the class "just for the student needs" . I do play other instruments and i will be coaching you how to perform along with percussion /guitar/bass / keyboard so while you learn we can build your own confidence to play with other musicians or jam with your friends from day one.
My teaching method is that of beginning from the basics, Rudiments, Time Signatures and Rhythms. All three of these are what help to make you a better drummer, and allow you freedom whilst you play. I am an ambassador for learning genres of all kinds, as it is important for a drummer to be diverse in what she/he plays.
If you want to learn the basics, I will print out rudiments and we can go through them. I can demonstrate to you how to properly do them as well. I specialise in snare drum so rudiments and snare pieces can be looked at.
ANDY TURCO -Drummer- PURPOSE: Playing has always has to be about: sharing emotions, express feelings, have fun, being curious, pushing musicians boundaries.
Throughout his career Max has always been an educator and offers private tuition. Max aims to motivate and inspire his students, whilst teaching them the key skills to master the instrument. The bulk of Max's teaching experience is as Head of Drum Kit as DS School of Music in Monmouth, Wales, where he taught private 1:1 lessons, teaching over 800 lessons.
I primarily teach private lessons, but am open to a group setting. My lessons are very tailored to an individual's needs: once I've assessed someone's playing I have a very good idea of what they need to do to become a well-rounded player.
Students dictate the general direction and focus of practical exercises, selected from thematic area's like independence, inter-dependence, performance stamina, consistency, and along side become equipped with the digital skills needed to collaborate, record and produce professional sounding mixes using Reaper. I only have two standards. Good posture. Good timekeeping.
If the student is new to percussion, they will be learning the basics. If they have prior experience, we will take that experience and experience and expand on it. I feel that each student is different so different techniques will be used for each student.
I personalise lessons to suit your exact needs so that you reach your goals efficiently whilst always having fun. I have a Roland Electronic Drum Kit that I am able to quickly and easily set up at your premises to minimise disruption and help maximise your progress. I teach all age groups and capabilities.
I offer developmental drum lessons for individuals based on the techniques and methods I learned from my own instructors through the years. I believe that the best way to learn the drums is to learn and practice a diversity of genres before deciding to specialize, and to build one's skill from a "bottom up" methodology.
After understanding what your current level of playing is (beginner, intermediate, advanced), I will figure out what your goals are, or help you establish them. Then we'll explore the best way to make your learning fun. As soon as possible, I would like to have you playing along to music so that you can enjoy the process and have FUN.
