PRIVATE LESSONS

TEACHING STYLE:

Teaching beginners is the most rewarding for me”, Glen says, “It gives me an opportunity to offer the great gift of drumming, and watch the student transition from a raw beginner to an accomplished musician.

Fun is one of the most important elements in Glen’s teaching style:

“ If it’s not fun”, says Glen, “then it’s work… and you’ve probably already got a job!”

But there has to be progress before fun. Progress IS fun. And, Glen is with you, every step of the way, guiding you to reach your goal of musicianship.

STUDENT/TEACHER FIT:

Whether you are a retiree, a young learner (accompanying parents are welcome), a modest hobbyist, a wild rocker needing some finesse, or a serious student seeking to progress to a highly technical level of musicianship, Glen’s eclectic experience can take you where you want to go (even if it’s just to have a bit of fun 🙂 )

WHAT I TEACH:

  • Playing the drumset (rhythms and grooves)
  • Rudiments (like scales to a pianist, this stuff is priceless)
  • Independence (How DO you get 4 limbs doing different things!?)
  • Reading (drum charts – this is good stuff, and your drumming will soar. I’ll show you how… easy).
  • Creativity (flashy, cross-sticking, cool stuff)
  • Soloing (how to pull off an awesome drum solo).
  • And… anything else you want to learn. Really.

LEARN IN YOUR STUDIO, or mine:

Learning drums in your home, on your drums, is not only convenient, but also efficient. Every time you play on a different drumset, you need to adjust, calibrate your technique, and overcome the challenges of a new kit. Learning music is already challenging enough without the added impediment of learning a new kit. Stick to your own drumset, and take the fast lane.

Not setup in your home? No problem, we can use my facilities (Squamish, BC).

GROUP RHYTHM WORKSHOPS:

If you have a group, a choir, a class, or a band that might need to tighten up some rhythm skills, check out my GROUP RHYTHM WORKSHOPS.

RHYTHM is often the weak-point in a group, band, or choir. Musicians & Singers spend a lot of time on intonation, note selection, and harmony structures, but the component that holds everything together – the rhythm – is often secondary.

HOW IT WORKS: I’ll visit your rehearsal space and engage your group with an informative, fun, and richly productive session on rhythm. Exercises, Call/Answer patterns, and some Rhythm Theory (taught from the perspective of a pro-drummer) will all come together in an entertaining workshop.

WHAT YOU PROVIDE:

  • Your venue (rehearsal space, classroom or similar)
  • Your participants (choir or band members, students)

WHAT I PROVIDE:

  • Drumset for rhythm demonstrations (electronic drums to control volume)
  • Set List (written agenda for scope of workshop)
  • Rhythm Sheets (to demonstrate & teach rhythmic notation)
  • Education, and…
  • Fun!
