Biography

I'm Nathan, a passionate drummer and musician based in Verwood, Dorset, providing drum tuition and recording services in a home-studio environment.

After seeing one of my best friends perform in a school assembly on the drum kit and being absolutely blown away by the sound the instrument made, I quickly found out who his tutor was (Danny Pearson) and started having lessons. Since then, after going on to reach the finals of the Young Drummer of The Year competition two years in a row, and then completing Grade 8 with distinction, I began giving lessons myself. At first my lessons were an informal side project, but after realising my passion for it, I wanted to teach full time.

I like to keep lessons laid back, but tailored to the direction the student chooses, whether that be a new style, technique or a favourite song with a funky drum rhythm. I also teach the Trinity College London Grades, as they were the grades I was put through by my original tutor (and they served me very well in making progress on the kit). In the almost 5 years I have been teaching, I have a 100% pass rate for the grades and continue to encourage students to aim for the highest mark possible (if they choose to exam). Lessons can go at whatever pace the student desires, some have weekly lessons whilst others prefer once a fortnight as everyone has differing levels of time available for practice and various commitments.

I teach mostly from my home studio/teaching room, but do travel out to some lessons too. The advantage of teaching in the studio is having the two kits set up next to each other, so it’s very easy to demonstrate and play pieces without the disruption of getting on and off the same kit. The studio has a speaker set up and sound proofing which allows us to play the grade piece or latest ‘Foo Fighter’s’ track they may be learning, at a good volume and not worry about the noise levels (provided you’re wearing ear protection of course).
