Book lessons with professional drum teacher Dan Wilby
Hello! I'm Dan Wilby, a professional drum teacher based in Coventry. I offer High quality drum lessons with an experienced teacher.
I have a wide range of experience in performing, playing and teaching. My aim is to pass on all of this experience to you in the most effective way possible.
I have a host of experience in teaching students of all ages. With this in mind, I welcome both young learners and more experienced learners. I would recommend starting no earlier than age 5 though.
Music has always been my passion. My music taste is very varied and because of this I can play and teach almost any style you wish to learn.
I pride myself on building my lessons around you. I will create a lesson plan that suits your individual needs.
Professional personalised lessons created with the student in mind.
I offer my 30 min lessons for my more casual learners who perhaps don't have as much time to practice as they would like or for younger learners who would benefit from shorter lessons.
My one-hour lessons would be the most popular option. I recommend that students with a real drive to improve and learn as much as possible go for this option. One hour lessons are generally suitable for learners over the age of 10. Usually, one lesson per week is enough to see some real progress in a short time.
'Having drum lessons with Dan was a great experience. His lessons were fun and engaging, and he always made sure that I was understanding what he taught me. Most importantly, his lessons were always focused on working towards my goals.'
'I highly recommend Dan as an instrumental tutor. He is very observant and knows how to break down a subject into small steps that enabled me to progress at a comfortable pace. He has a great attitude to teaching, and also knows a lot about drum gear and tuning, which shows that he is very dedicated to his craft as a musician.'
I am a teacher who has a passion for playing the drums. However, I like to keep my lessons fun and enjoyable. I feel one of the best ways to learn something properly is to enjoy learning it and with this in mind, I will always make sure my lessons are as fun for you as they are for me.
As mentioned before, I have a real passion for music and love all styles of music. In the past, I have taught Rock, Pop, Fusion, Funk, Jazz among many other genres. I am confident that no matter your taste in music I will be able to teach you what you love.
I believe it is important to learn the music you love and I will always make sure this is something we focus on. As well as learning all the essentials I like to make sure we can focus on learning songs from the artists you like to listen too.
As a performer, I have worked in various contexts including playing for Pop artists, CCM artists, Rock bands, Jazz ensembles, Big Bands and more. My experience includes live performances, studio recordings as well as live streamed and televised performances.
I teach the majority of my lessons from my home studio on Albany Rd Coventry, UK. This is a great place to learn because I have created a positive and comfortable learning environment where you can unlock your full potential.
My full teaching address will be provided upon your first lesson booking.
