I’m Kamil and I offer private drum tuition in the West/South West London areas to students who are keen on getting started, or for more advanced players who wish to push themselves musically.
Lessons are independently tailored to each student to maximise progress, whilst being delivered in a fun, relaxed and inspiring manor. Whether you’re an absolute beginner, have moderate skills being the kit, or are more advanced, I can ensure that progress will be made whilst unlocking your full potential.
Over the years I have gained a lot of experience teaching younger ages and as such I have really good methods that will get your child playing basic rhythms and beats along to their favourite songs in no time!
Students will also be given various print-outs and MP3's so they can continue learning between lessons.
Enhanced DBS checked, and I’ve complete various Child Safeguarding Courses over the years for previous employers.
All aspects of drumming are covered, so whether you’re just starting out, or have specific things you’d like to focus on, I’ve got you covered. Here’s a brief list of the things we’ll work on:
Playing along to songs, understating the importance of timing and using your own ear to clearly hear what the drums are playing
Fun fills and patterns around the kit
Exploration of a variety of music styles including jazz, rock, latin, funk, pop, metal etc
Preparation for graded exams (Rockschool, Trinity Rock & Pop etc, Grades 1 - 8) should you wish to do this
Double kick drum applications
Rudiments on the snare, and application around the kit
Groove and awareness of how to play with other musicians
Music theory and how to read drum notation
Lessons offered can be in-person at students’ homes, online, or in my studio located in Staines.
Areas covered - Isleworth, Brentford, Hounslow, Richmond, Barnes, Putney, Clapham, Wimbledon, Staines, Twickenham, Whitton, Osterley, Kew, Kingston-Upon-Thames, Fulham, and local surrounding areas.
