Happy New Year everybody! Hope you've all had a good one.
Some new things happening when I get back from the break. The studio is busy and looking good for next year before I head off for a few weeks on tour.
I've decided to offer limited private tuition from 2018. When I'm not out playing with Artistes I lecture at Degree level music schools and colleges and am really enjoying it.
Whats on offer? Glad you asked...
1) One hour session:
Areas covered: Technique, Independence, Applied technique Reading, Genre specific study, Odd meter (a speciality !), Creative thinking....
Come give your playing an MOT and I'll work out a plan.
2) Studio playing session (2Hrs):
(Extended session available on request).
This session will be on a fully mic'd up kit.
There is no better no hiding place in the studio. It tells the truth about your playing.
We cover numerous recording exercises that can lead up to replacing my drums on the sessions I've been booked to do at my studio over the years. As well as my sessions, I have hundreds of playalong tracks to work with to suit your level and style.
We'll discuss the core elements of studio playing including - Groove, building a part, creative thinking, playing for the song, working with a producer and a multitude of other topics.
Whatever your level, hearing yourself played back alone or in the context of a track is ultimately the best learning experience.
Suitable for intermediate to professional level.
