Drum Lessons West London! With experience as a professional drummer for many years, as well as having a background in communication-intensive Sales and Marketing roles in what I call my “previous life”, I have built a great teaching track record giving comprehensive drum lessons in and around West London.
From 5 year olds to people in their 60s, my aim is to always make my drum lessons relevant, fun, and most importantly centered around students’ goals and needs.
WHAT I TEACH
My drum lessons focus on creative concepts and their application, hand and foot technique, time and timing, stylistic studies, as well as groove & feel to develop my students’ musicianship.
I achieve this in different ways, including teaching students how to play their favourite songs, preparing them for Trinity Guildhall / Rockschool Grade Exams, or on an individual needs-basis.
I strongly believe in the strength of a good relationship. As such, I aim to develop this with my students by way of understanding them as people, how they learn, and their goals.
Framing information in a way that resonates, I provide dynamic, thorough yet fun drum lessons, and work to develop students’ musicality by jamming along with them on the bass guitar, as well as to their favourite tunes, and beyond.
How do kids and teenagers benefit from drum lessons?
- Discipline through a target driven activity
- Development of teamwork, listening, and communication skills
- Duke Of Edinburgh awards activity
- Boost confidence by taking grade exams
- Develop self-awareness, and mental well-being
Like their younger counterparts, adults benefit in many ways too
- Fun activity after work that engages the senses
- Health benefits including stress release through a light cardiovascular activity
- Learning a new skill and developing a new appreciation for music
- Further develops listening skills, and reinforces team work
WHAT STUDENTS SAY
Nick has all the qualities you want in a teacher. He loves his craft, he’s excellent at it, he’s patient and most importantly you can tell he is passionate about sharing his knowledge with you.
He has been my teacher now for over 3 years and, during that time I have improved far beyond what I could have managed myself. He manages to keep the teaching process fresh by tailoring the lessons so that there is a good mix between the more rudimentary stuff that is needed and whatever you personally want to learn.
I would highly recommend him to anyone who wanted to learn drums.Tom N.
My son has had lessons with Nick since the age of 5 (he is now 11). He LOVES the lessons. Nick is always so generous with time and flexible and now operates out of a really cool studio. He is a brilliant teacher with great patience and I would highly recommend him.Jess J.
