Teacher's Biography:

Lawrence Giles offers drum tuition to all ages and abilities. He believes that rhythm isn't just something your born with and everyone has the potential to learn the drums through dedication and hard work. Lawrence has a wealth of experience both in tuition and a live setting having completed numerous worldwide contracts and tours with well-established artists and companies. Through these experiences, Lawrence can offer guidance and support to aspiring musicians.

Here is how it works:

Once the first introductory lesson is complete a structured week-by-week plan is drawn up to include both personal goals and tutor targets. This could include working through a graded syllabus eg Rockschool, Guildhall, rudimentary work, independence exercises, playing styles or maybe even learning a song you have always wanted to be able to play. Lessons are taught in a very relaxed manner and we work at your pace encouraging you to push yourself to achieve the goals you have set out. Recordings can be taken for you to take home to mark your progress and develop ideas. After each lesson students are given exercises to work on throughout the week between lessons to further their learning and understanding of the areas being covered.
