We Teach Music offers a contemporary approach to drum lessons. We help our students learn to play drums to the songs they love, but at the same type explaining the theory behind the music. Once students are passionate about their learning we encourage them to work from a suitable grading system. We offer Rockschool grades in line with Trinity Syllabuses. At the same time as teaching instrumental skills we encourage students to get creative in developing their own melodies and music. All our teachers are DBS and ISA registration checked and can offer drum lessons for kids or adults.
Our drum teacher Conor Williams began playing drums at 10. He studied at the University of Kent, gaining a distinction in Performing Popular Music. Conor is a versatile drummer with skills in a vast array of styles such as Rock, Pop, Funk, Soul, Jazz and Hip-Hop. He has performed at a number of venues including The Barfly, o2 Academy, Hop Farm, Boardmasters, and Lounge on The Farm. He regularly attends live music shows, clinics and masterclasses, continuing to study and practice drums in order to become a better musician and teacher. Conor is highly in demand, offering drums lessons across Kent, both privately and in local schools.
John McLean is a multitalented and diverse musician capable of playing numerous styles on both guitar and drums. John has experience performing in original and function groups, from weddings, clubs and festivals, to “am-dram” theatre productions and intense studio work. John studied at the Academy of Contemporary Music, where he gained a BMUS performance degree along with a Certificate of Higher Education in music performance (Cert HE). His other qualifications include grade 8 drums (Rock School). Some of John’s influences include Dave Weckl, Steve Jordan, Buddy Rich, Vinnie Colaiutta and Steve Gadd.
He is a young enthusiastic and inspirational guitar and drum teacher and we are very excited to have him onboard at We Teach Music.
