Business overview

My name is Jonathan. I attended, www.mi.edu ~ I am a Pro Drum Educator & Personal Tutor operating throughout the Banbury area and surrounding counties.

I currently teach privately at One Man Band Music Shop in Banbury from Monday to Friday and other primary, secondary and private schools around the Oxfordshire area. I am three times CRB/DBS registered and I'm more than happy to provide references if necessary. I teach from age 6 upwards using varying methods that I have acquired from a classically based education and over 25 years drumming. I teach students all aspects of drumming from sight reading, kit tuning; click track work, equipment maintenance, gigging, sessions and everything else drum related. I also do a lot of improvisational work, playing to all manner of artists. I Started playing the drums at the age of 14. My father was a music teacher and composer at Upper Heyford Middle School in Oxfordshire. Due to the frequency of students being drafted and relocated to and from the UK, U.S. and Europe, I had to pick up the shortfall of critical orchestral instruments, consequently learned to play a number of instruments very well. I started out on Trumpet and went on to play first chair throughout my entire 8-year schooling at Upper Heyford Middle School and at Croughton H S on Baritone, Trombone, Saxophone and finally Tuba, but not all at the same time. I played and achieved grade 6 and grade 8 certificates. I have relevant superior rated certificates of competitions I entered and obtained on the above. I eventually went on to specialise solely on the drums. While concentrating and studying drums, I also privately taught flute, Saxophone and trumpet to gain more gain more teaching experience. I have played in many musical set up's from pit orchestra, classical, Jazz, Rock and Fusion mix. I also do studio session work. So you're in great hands, I'm pretty laid back but very professional in my teaching style and individual 'tailored' approach.

Banbury Drum Tuition review

Jonathan teaches my 10-year-old son, Toby. He's an excellent teacher with a passion for the music, great technical knowledge and a sense of humour! The lessons are very engaging, enjoyable and Toby is making great progress. I would certainly recommend Jonathan to anyone looking for an inspirational drum teacher. Alistair Driver

Hey Alister. Thanks for the review, much appreciated. It's good go see Toby is beginning to develop his 'drumming face' as well as improving his technique and musicality.
