Book lessons with professional drum teacher Dan Egdell
Hello! I'm Dan Egdell, a professional drum teacher based in Leeds. I have helped many students achieve their playing ambitions across all kinds of genres.
I teach a wide range of styles including Rock, Pop, Jazz, Funk & everything in-between.
I welcome learners of all levels. If you happen to be a beginner, I have years of experience working with beginners.
I have had nothing but positive feedback from current and previous students alike. I will try my best to make your lessons fun and enjoyable.
I am an experienced teacher who has been teaching students of all ages for around 3 years now.
I offer exciting drum lessons in Leeds made with you, the student in mind.
I offer 3/4 hour lessons students for those who don't have the time to commit to an hour every week. I would recommend that my 3/4 lessons are perfect for young learners who are new to the drums.
Hour lessons are suited to students above the age of 12 who have a serious ambition to progress with their playing. An hours lesson once a week is what I would recommend for the majority of students.
'Amazing first lesson! Dan is really patient, and got me playing basic beats by the end of the session! Would highly recommend!'
'I have always wanted to learn drums but was always nervous. Dan’s great at giving direction, picks up on the mistakes I often don’t notice and gives me confidence. He manages to tailor the lessons to the way I learn. He’s a fantastic teacher!'
'Thank you for your skills, support, patience & encouragement. Your easy going, can do attitude meant that it was so easy & most importantly fun.'
In my time teaching and as a musician I have learned to always approach everything with a high level of quality and professionalism. I will always pay attention to the smallest of details and this reflects well in my students progress.
As well as teaching I regularly record and perform with multiple artists. This has resulted in having airplay on Both radio 1 and radio 6. I am just as passionate about teaching as I am with writing music.
As a teacher, I realise that not every student is the same. With this in mind, I will create a lesson plan that works for you. I will always make sure we learn at a pace that works for you.
I feel it is really important to incorporate the music you know and love whilst learning the drums. I will always make sure we learn music that is appropriate to your musical loves and tastes and incorporate that into our lessons.
I currently take the majority of my lessons from my home teaching space, based just off of Walter Street, LS4 2AZ, Leeds. I believe this is a great place to learn how to play the drums as I have created a great learning environment for all of my students
As well as being a great place to learn, my teaching studio is easy to find and is easy to travel to when using public transport.
My full teaching address will be provided upon your first lesson booking.
