Laura is a young friendly female drum kit tutor, available to teach in London from September 2013. With 4 years of experience teaching and entering pupils into trinity exams, Laura has gained a great reputation for teaching both beginners and intermediate drummers.

Having performed in many bands and ensembles, Laura has a great knowledge of working in bands, working with conductors, click tracks, recording, sight reading and performance skills. Ensembles and venues Laura has played in ranged from country bands in Devon, Jazz ensembles at the Montreaux Jazz festival and Disneyland, as well as the Opening ceremony of last years Olympic games in London.

"I aim to teach all the fundamental skills required to be a well rounded musician. All students will gain a good knowledge of reading written drum notation (it's a lot easier than it looks!!), technique, different styles of drumming and drum theory. Each pupil will have their own lessons tailored to them however, as I know how important it is to have enjoyable lessons; I too well know what it is like to have that "I can't be bothered to practice this week" feeling - Lessons should be FUN! One way I do this is to teach the drum parts of the pupils favourite songs to keep them engaged, and make them want to practice."

Laura has an up to date CRB and is willing to travel to students homes (this may involve a slightly higher lesson fee depending on distance).

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with her if you have any questions or queries regarding lessons.
