About Magesh M.
I have been lucky enough to play drums for Lionel Richie, Rhianna, Ricky Martin, Chris Brown and many other pop stars. I have taught for over 20 years and pride myself on being able to teach a complete beginner a basic beat in their first lesson.
Teaching in Drum Kit
I teach drum kit from beginners to advanced students aged 10 and up. I have created a really simple system to help students read and understand music. Once a student learns basic technique, timing and reading there are many different styles they can learn. I am open-minded and flexible in lessons to what a student wants to learn after they know the basics - whether they want to know how to play a drum solo or just songs from their favourite bands.
I teach all styles of music including pop, funk, jazz, rock, hip hop and heavy metal.
I always start the first lesson by asking the student why they want to play the drums. This gives me an idea of what to teach them after they have practiced the basics. In the first lesson I teach how to hold sticks, basic timing and technique and also how to play a basic beat.
Ideally, students will have a drum kit and sticks for their lessons. A rubber practice pad and sticks is also ok but having a drum kit gives the student a lot more options for what they can learn.
