Groove heavy drum teacher for students wishing to progress, based in Manchester UK.

Methodology

I always approach with the students needs in mind. I take as many steps necessary to ensure that the lessons are as fun, safe, and as productive as possible.

With my upbringing on black musical styles such as funk, Reggae and Soul, I heavily emphasize the importance of having the right feel of any genre, and how every technique learned should be to complement the grooves as opposed to being a mere add-on.

Background

MY name is Jamal Lewis-Service. I have been playing drums for nearly 10 years, have a whole host of experience in performances, gigging and studio sessions.

I offer drum lessons for beginners-intermediate/advanced students of any age range, covering a range of music genres for any ability. From Rock/Pop to Funk to even World and specialist genres, but most importantly, how to groove within these genres.

Beginners' lessons should expect to learn:

- Why how you position yourself at the drum kit should be your first priority before playing.
- Warmups that will aid in developing a solid internal clock.
-Hold to hold the sticks and the different applications of stick grips.
-Basic subdivisions, Use of the metronome and the small ways to help keep time on the kit
- Your first grooves. The basic beats and smaller variations.
- The "Half-time/Double-time Theory" and why understanding this is crucial to your musical progression, especially in regards to contemporary playing.
-Introductions to fills, why they exists, and when to use them
-Introductions to rudiments, what they are, why we use them and ways to apply them.

Intermediate Players can expect to learn:
- Different genres, the correct approach, and the appropriate feel
-Ways of using the
-Why you should focus on grooves over fills and chops.
-hand/foot combinations.
-More applications of different rudiments.
-Your left foot and why it's the most important and most overlooked limb within your drumming repertoire.

Many of My students have gone on to progress in playing in different bands within their own high school or their own careers and being active on the circuit.
