About Tim York

'With over 25 years professional teaching experience I am able to 
offer an exemplary standard of tuition. I have a patient approach, 
and aim to make my lessons enjoyable whilst maintaining progress.

I offer weekly or fortnightly lessons in a well equipped teaching 
room in Dursley, Gloucs.

I teach people of all ages and standards according to individual 
needs, so whether you want to do this for fun and learn to play your 
favourite songs, or whether you want to take your skills to 
professional standard, I can help you.

Exam tuition is available - for the last 14 years I’ve been entering 
students for the Rock School exams without any failures.

I teach using well structured lesson plans, breaking everything 
you’re learning down to basics. Over the years I’ve developed 
numerous teaching strategies, so if one approach isn’t working for a 
student we try another one.

Lesson plans include learning to play a variety of rhythms in a 
variety of styles, playing along with songs, working on correct 
technique, rudiments and developing reading skills.

About me: I’ve worked professionally as a drummer for over 25 years. 
In that time I’ve worked with many artists, particularly in the 
London area, as well as touring. In my work I’ve covered many styles 
of playing in great depth, including Rock, Metal, Jazz, Funk, Latin, 
African and Reggae. I’ve studied with some of the best teachers in 
the UK, including Bob Armstrong, Drumtech, Rick Finlay and Clifford 
Jarvis. I’m passionate about playing and teaching and love helping my 
students to develop as players.

I am CRB checked. '

Sam (13) and Emma (11) have been with Tim for nearly 3 years and are 
gradually being transformed, from absolute beginners, into 
accomplished musicians. Each of them is on their own journey of 
musical discovery and I'm sure with Tim's passion and high standards 
they will get the most out that journey. It's simply amazing what 
they've already achieved. (Eric and Tina, Dursley)

Tim gives well organised, interesting and inspiring lessons with a 
thorough teaching of techniques. He uses a variety of teaching 
strategies and nothing is too much trouble. Tim is willing to be 
flexible and help you work on pieces of your choice. (Jacky, Dursley)

I've been coming for lessons with Tim for 5 years. In that time I've 
learned a colossal amount of techniques, rhythms, grades, improving 
my timing, and things I did not even know existed. Look no further - 
he is an excellent teacher and a really nice guy. Roll on another 5 
years! (Ryan, Nailsworth)
