About the teacher
I offer drum tuition for all ages from complete beginner to the more experienced. I cover all aspects of drumming and will work to tailor the lessons for the desired direction and will cover Trinity Guildhall Grades. I will cover technique, rudiments, reading music, modern electronics (triggers, etc) and will work through many different styles and genres depending on the tastes and desires of the student. I also offer tuition and guidance on drum tuning and drum recording techniques.
I am based at Ruschestrasse 104 in my private studio which is a 5 minute walk from either Frankfurter Allee or Magdalenenstrasse U-Bahn Stations. I am available to teach lessons from this space, which is fully soundproofed. It is equipped with my Ludwig Maple Classic drum kit and Zildjian cymbals. It also has a PA system set up for playing along to pre-recorded music and a good collection of microphones and studio equipment for recording drums. I am also available for home visits and as a visiting tutor to schools and am very happy to travel anywhere in Berlin.
I provide all study materials and will be keen to discuss a plan of action to work to the student’s needs.
Undergraduate Diploma in Drumkit and Performance - The Tech School - Graduation in 2002
I have 2 years of one-on-one teaching experience and currently have a number of private students of differing ages and abilities. Whilst in London I was woking as a visiting tutor for the London Music Centre, The Gower School in Islington and Insights Academy in Acton. I was working with several young students, between the age of 6 and 18 for these organisations, preparing them for their Trinity Guildhall Grade Exams.
I have been behind the drum kit in various musical projects from the age of 13. My primary musical involvement has been with London based 5-piece, Zulu Winter. I was a founding member of this alternative pop / indie collective and released our debut album 'Language' in May 2012 on PIAS records.
More recently I have been touring with the band ‘Cymbals’ on their 2nd album tour of the UK in May 2014 and North America in August 2014. I am currently in rehearsals in Berlin with the German artist ‘Nessi’ who will be touring throughout 2015 in support of her debut album.
