Specializing in drumset and marching band technique/skills. I will work with students on all aspects of drumming to ensure a well rounded education while adapting the lesson to each individual. Great match for most levels of skill and experience! Drumset available for use during lesson.
Jan has been teaching drums for over 6 years to students ranging from 4 years old to adults in their forties.
He teaches exercises and techniques that allow students to break down the movements of their hands and feet on the drum kit into specific strokes that can then methodically be practiced to attain proficiency, control and speed on the instrument.
To keep things fun and interesting we learn covers in a variety of styles and difficulty levels, and develop our reading skills to further our understanding and technique.
Jan will also allow his students to write their own parts as they progress on the kit by picking up either the guitar or bass and giving them the chance to jam with another instrument, which most students love to do and have a lot of fun with.
Lessons are held with two drum kits so students can easily copy their teachers movements.
My lessons focus on technique, reading, and application. I will provide the student with exercises to practice between lessons. My teaching will adjust according to the student's level, pace, and goals.
My goal for my students is to have an understanding on how to use their instrument, develop versatility, discover who they are as a musician, and have fun along the way!
I've been playing the drums for 14+ years. My Godfather Jimmy Chamberlain influenced me from a young age.
Experienced drum teacher of 5 years! For beginners, my lesson plan is simple : 1. we start off with exercises from "Alfred's Drum Method Book One", 2. we go over two to three drum beats, 3. we practice sheet-music (typically songs chosen by the student). The time devoted to each portion of the lesson is totally adjustable / up to the student! In other words, you will learn what you want to learn at your own pace. Lessons can be done at my apartment, your place, or online.
