Notes:

Extensive experience teaching towards graded exams and teaching theory as well as aural skills to give musicians a natural feel for their instrument and the people they are playing with, thus making drumming second nature and a thoroughly enjoyable activity.
My teaching has an emphasis on improvisation, specifically either in the jazz idiom or as a means to be comfortably prepared for any situation/genre you may be put in as a working musician.
This improvisational emphasis is used as part of the teaching progress to look at solo and group performance as a meditative and reflective technique, training the mind and body to play music naturally and without thought, rather than as an exercise in planning, stressing, worrying and thinking. The aim is for playing to become unconscious, with improvisation happening via the mind/body/instrument-organisms role as a conduit for pure expression - speaking without words, creating meaning through which beautiful sounds are created, rather than thinking 'I will create a beautiful sound, I will play well, I will look good'.
By far the most important part of my teaching process is that it must be fun, easy and natural and must also be tailored to fit the specific needs and goals of each individual student.
