About the tutor

I have over 15 years of Drumming, Recording and Touring experience. I grew up in West Germany where I have played in several projects as a Drummer and percussionist. I have played in many band formations: Rock, Funk, Blues, Jazz and handmade electronic music. I am currently teaching the Drum Set at the Cudgen Public School and am currently playing with the Global Jazz Collective in the Northern New South Wales Region.

I studied Event Management back in Europe and I know exactly how to be prepared on and behind the stage. I started DM Mobile Drum Lessons on the Gold Coast to pass on the knowledge and skills to anyone who wants to learn the Drums and to improve their skills on the Drums set.

Lessons For Kids

GET LESSONS FOR KIDS

All of my drum students begin by learning about the drum kit and its many components. They are encouraged to hit each drum and cymbal and familiarize themselves with the sound each one makes. I will explain what each drum contributes to the overall sound of the band.kids

Once my drum students have been introduced to the kit, they beginning working on basic rudiments – the rhythmic patterns that will form the backbone of their Drumming. Those basic patterns slowly morph into the drum beats used in play along songs. I will cover different drum beats and explain the related drum notation for those.

In later lessons I will also use the song as a lesson, introducing the student to concepts like time signatures and song structure for the first time. Drum Students learn how to count measures and connect one section of a song with the other by exicting drum fills.

Once they have learned a few songs, my drum students begin working to master their advanced rudiments.

After a month, most students are ready for the challenge to perform with other students within their age group and use music as a way to express themselves.
