James Fox's Music Tuition

Rotherham and Sheffield

James Fox

Drum Kit

I will soon be offering high quality drum tuition from beginner to intermediate levels!

I will be offering drum tuition in most popular genres and find that students often enjoy releasing energy through their drum lessons while making some cool rhythmic music at the end of the day!

Although I encourage students to take drum lessons for fun, I also aim to improve their technical skills through drum lessons, or to obtain their Rockschool qualification on the drum kit.

Enhancing Your Existing Skills

Building up technique, stamina and understanding of the instrument is of course at the core of my drum tuition, but students are also offered the opportunity to undertake music theory studies as part of their drum lessons.

An understanding of music theory has been shown to provide the student with a deeper understanding of music and improve general communication skills. For the drummer, this can help offer more insight into the role of other band members and their instruments, and is a great help when working on graded exams!

Reading drum notation can be a really powerful tool for the modern drummer, which is why I often work it into my drum tuition. I do understand that this is not for everyone so I will not force students to read drum notation as part of their drum lessons.
