MUSIC / DRUMS lessons – All ages
Hello my name is Christian,
I am a graduate from Concordia University's Jazz Studies Program.
Music is my passion! I enjoy teaching to students of all ages noting that I am especially good with kids. At 22 years old, I am fully bilingual, open minded and very easy to get along with.
My main instrument is the drums but I also play the piano. Drums are a very important instrument in any band because of its rhythmic responsibilities. Rhythm is a fundamental aspect of any music regardless of its complexity. It is what creates life and movement in the music and gets people dancing or swaying. Because of all the time I have spent on the drums, I am confident that I can teach rhythm which is important to any musician regardless of their instruments.
What can you expect of me as music tutor?
I am both a really fun and serious teacher
I expose students to new ideas
I expose students to music that they may never have heard before
I teach students how to listen to music and understanding the meaning of music
I emphasize rhythm or "how to make every note dance"
I teach music theory, how to read, write and analyze music
I can teach drums of many styles including Rock, Pop, Jazz, Funk, Afro-Cuban, R&B, HipHop, Brazilian & others.
My recent performance experience includes:
Places-Des-Arts (for Business Beyond Tomorrow with keynote speaker David Suzuki),
Omni Mont-Royal Hotel (Business Banquet with keynote speaker Drew Dudley),
"Les Nuits D'Afrique" world music festival,
Public performances at Concordia
Recording drums for different musical groups and playing in various clubs around the city,
I also compose and record music of my own.
My best teaching asset is that I am very good at listening in both the musical and the social context. I suggest, rather than impose ideas and values on the students.
Anybody that would like to study with me, will have fun and will learn something new about music.
That is my personal guarantee !
- 5 years of experience
I have tutored independently at home and through various music schools such as West mount's Boradway Academy.
