Drum Teachers Blog

My name is Gideon Waxman and I’m a 24-year-old drummer from London. I have been playing for over 13 years and I studied music performance at the University of Westminster. As a working musician, I regularly perform events and parties as a freelance percussionist. Additionally I teach drums and I get a lot of satisfaction from helping my students progress and improve their ability.

I’m also the drummer of metal outfit Familiar Spirit, and we have just announced we will embark on a tour in July with legendary metal heavyweights ‘Mushroomhead’ around the UK!

I set up my website Drum Helper to be a reliable and high quality source of information for all things drums. I have written educational guides for important aspects of drumming such as The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide To Recording Drums and How To Ensure Correct Drumming Posture. I also write trusted, unbiased product reviews in order to help people find the best drumming products available on the market. Lots of drummers don’t know where to begin looking so I’m pleased I can use my experience to help with articles such as The Best Electronic Drum Sets For All Budgets and The Best Double Bass pedals. Drum helper’s mission is to inspire and to motivate, and to increase all drummers’ enjoyment and satisfaction from playing! Please do feel free to check out my site and I hope to maybe catch you at one of my gigs around the UK!
