Tuition - Drum Lessons East London
In my home in Stepney Green, East London I have an adapted music room with acoustic and electronic kits for drum lessons, playing and recording. My approach to teaching is based on a set of simple principles instilled in me through my own development which has been refined in over 25 years of playing.
Above all else playing any musical instrument should be a joyous and rewarding experience for all and learning should, by definition, be full of growth.
Lessons for beginners and younger players are fun and challenging and a way to start to explore both music making and listening.
Those looking to improve their existing ability are guided through ways to expand not only repertoire but technique and musical approach.
Players who possess a larger skill set are in a position to thoroughly explore what it means to have a distinctive voice on the drums and to refine their approach to make them confident, creative, expressive and ultimately employable.
The goal is always to facilitate the desire of the student by providing a framework for them to learn effectively whilst also exploring new areas of interest to expand their musical potential.
I have taught all ages in schools, privately, for artistic organizations and for business groups. I am CRB/DBD checked and parents are very welcome to relax and wait here during lessons.
Lessons are priced at £35 per hour or £22 for half hour sessions. I am always happy to discuss any aspect of teaching with new students/parents and would welcome any questions. If you would like to enquire about booking a lesson or have any questions at all on tuition please send me a message using the contact page.
"I had drum lessons with Dom for several years and I loved every single one of them. They were fun, challenging and fulfilling. He taught me to read and really understand rhythmic notation, which has proven to be an invaluable skill and made me a more versatile drummer. I have also progressed to teaching and still use some of the material he taught me with when I first started. Dom is not only a fantastic drummer but also a fantastic teacher. It was truly inspiring to have been taught by him" - Daniel, Hemel Hempstead
"When our son asked if he could have drum lessons we were so lucky to secure Dom as his drum tutor. Dom is professional, trustworthy, and knowledgeable of his art. His passion for drumming is infectious to students and provides a sense of fun and motivation through learning music. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him for private drumming lessons." Rosie, St. Albans
"All in all, I highly recommend Dom. Even if your tenure as his student is to be as short as mine was, it will be well worth it. My lessons were often the highlight of my week and I still surprise myself with what I'm able to do on my electronic kit." Maheen, Boston
