Having a total of nine years experience, I have experienced all facets of the music industry, both as a performer and as a mentor. Being a student of Noam Lederman (Rockschool Composer, Professional Drummer),I have naturally followed in his footsteps and have become a teacher, starting around the same age as when he began teaching too. Having taught for four years, I have being juggling my teaching career around my band, session playing, professional composing and university degree. So far, I have experienced mixing and working with various industry specialists from artists such as Katy B, N-Dubs to working with companies such as Biggafish, What Next to name but a few. From this wealth of experience, I incorporate all that I have learnt into my lessons, creating a fun yet progressive atmosphere in which the student will be expected to engage and explore musically whilst also, enjoy doing so. With experience in many diverse genres from Alt Rock to Jazz, The student will experience learning many different facets of music which will evidently, improve them as a musician as a whole. With students currently engaged within different exams (Rockschool and Guildhall respectively), I have experience in guiding them through these exams, helping them achieve the highest possible marks available every time. Currently studying an Honors Degree in Commercial Music (third year), I have a thorough understanding of both musical tastes and also the development of music meaning that my lessons incorporate the student first and foremost, drawing on their passions, preferences and also, opening them up to new music which will both improve their musicality and also, expand their music knowledge. I can teach at my house due to having a kit set up however, it is more than valid for me to travel to students houses, providing that they having a drumkit. I can travel around the Hertfordshire/Middlesex area (currently based in Harrow) and surrounding areas, depending on location.
