Drums Lessons

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate

I have been playing drums for 35 years and have a great electronic drum kit to learn from in the studio. We will use books but also free form. My main styles have been rock and funk but if you would like to learn another style we can definitely cover it with a variety of stick techniques to be used. We will occasionally work with a metronome and there will be an emphasis on improving our co-ordination.

About

  • Teaches students aged 5+

Silas first learnt the piano aged seven then moved onto percussion and guitar in his high school years. He has played throughout London and Melbourne for over 20 years and has over 10 years teaching experience, including many primary schools.

Silas’ goal is to not only take the student through the standard and necessary procedures of music technique and theory but to also make the experience enjoyable and fun. To do this, he can digress off the standard path (if requested) by asking the student what they want to do, no matter how far-fetched it may seem.

Silas graduated from the London Academy of Performing Arts in 1998 with a graduate in classical acting which included singing. He also studied (and passed in flying colours!) classical guitar in year 12. He loves all music and his own late guitar teacher once described him as a "Beatlologist".
