Drum Tuition

Garry has always been very keen on musical education and to this end has been involved in tuition for most of his playing life. Either by teaching at schools, teaching other bands,  Latin rhythm groups or marching bands. When time allows he teaches drum set and basic music theory, in his own private studio at his home in south Birmingham. Adults and  children, beginners, intermediate or advanced are all welcome to learn. His studio is fully equipped with a practice drum set  and audio play back  for 'Music Minus One'  lessons. This is a system pioneered in the music colleges of the USA years ago, where you are taught to play your own drum part, you are then shown or demonstrated by the teacher how to play it and then finally you are coached to play it, the band is on CD but you are the drummer. It’s a great teaching tool and it works.

Many past pupils have gone on to have very successful careers after having had a course of study with Garry.

If you are interested just give him a call for a chat,  The lessons can be as often as you like, once a week, once every two weeks, once a month to suit yourself, and can be tailored to suit your own needs and style of music. Rudiments,  Independency, Jazz, Swing, Rock & Roll, Modern Pop Rhythms, Latin, Marching Band. The main thing is 'dedication and practice' The old saying 'Practice makes perfect' is very true. Nothing comes easy.


Garry's Private Studio is located in South Birmingham
