Oli Mason - Drum Kit and Percussion Teacher at The Drum Room Studios, Bristol.

Drum tuition in a purpose-built studio where both teacher and student have their own full drum kit to play for the duration of the lesson. I will draw from my life-long study of the drums and share my knowledge with you to take beginners and intermediate drummers up to the professional standard. We can work through the drumming essentials to develop musical technique and exercises to help you achieve your musical goals. Playing along to tracks is a great way to learn, which we can do from the very beginning!

We can also work on any of the following elements of drumming including: stick grip, posture, counting, dynamics, feel, fills, improvisation, creativity, originality, independence, speed, groove, articulation, reading sheet music, preparing for graded examinations and ways to stay motivated to create your own individual style.

Focus on a wide number of genres including Rock, Jazz, Swing, Funk, Metal, Blues, Reggae, Soul, Afro-Beat, Afro-Cuban, Latin, Fusion, Electronic/Breakbeat, Gospel, Contemporary Classical, Flamenco as well as hand-held Percussion instruments and the Cajon.

'The Drum Room' teaching studio has two full drum kits set up with cymbals ready to play and a P.A. system for song/click-track playback, as well as toilet and kitchen facilities. Hour long lessons are £20 and I am currently offering your first half-hour trial with me for absolutely FREE!!! After that you are free to decide when and how often you would like to have lessons with me (if at all), so you really have nothing to loose.

As well as currently teaching a number of dedicated young adults at the Drum Room Studios, I also perform with a diverse range of music projects. I have over 17 years of playing experience as a drummer and percussionist and have played with over 40 bands. I have also been leading workshops and teaching one-to-one since 2012, and have had extensive musical training throughout my education. Upon graduation from University, I freelanced for the Philharmonia Orchestra managing a regional education project called 'MusicLab', where I had a huge amount of experience teaching orchestral music to the very young, the elderly and thousands of members of the general public. I am DBS certified, First Aid and Fire Marshall trained and hold a 1st Class BA: (Hons) Degree in Music: Performance/Composition.
