Tavistock Tutors employ percussion teachers that cover a wide range of instruments. We provide tuition in both classical and popular genres, so our first-rate teachers can offer lessons on anything from the xylophone to the modern drum kit. Our professional percussion teachers offer lessons for beginners, amateurs and old hands who want to brush up on their skills.
If you choose to learn to play orchestral percussion, you can perform on a number of pitched and unpitched instruments. These adaptable percussion lessons can include tuition on the cymbals, the xylophone or glockenspiel, the timpani or other orchestral drums. Our percussion students are often encouraged by their teachers to learn several of these instruments simultaneously so they can perform with orchestras. You needn’t be the person playing one note on the triangle at the end of the piece! Of course, we have classical percussion teachers do offer tuition on instruments which are used for solo performance, such as the marimba or the steelpan.
More popular still are the lessons we offer on the drum kit. Whether you want to take graded exams or improve your technique for the band that you play in, Tavistock Tutors are the place to start. Our experienced drum teachers offer customised lessons for each student, which are designed to allow you to progress quickly and develop key techniques that can last for a whole career. Students will be encouraged to listen to recordings at home as much as they are encouraged to practise.
We have carefully selected our network of percussion teachers to include only those teachers who have a high level of skill and teaching experience. While teachers on any instrument we offer have a qualification equating to grade 8, most will exceed this. More importantly, we meet all of our tutors at interview to ensure that they have the necessary coaching skills to be able to pass on their technique and energy in these instruments to their pupils. Tavistock Tutors go to great lengths to provide a nexus of tutors that fulfil our demanding requirements, so you don’t have to find one yourself: allow us to provide you with an experienced, passionate and quality-assured percussion teacher.
