About Guillaume Charreau
Hi, my name is Guillaume Charreau, I'm a professional drummer and passionate teacher with over 15 years experience in Education. 
I run my own drum faculty, DrumDrill, and have been a tutor at BIMM college (previously Drumtech, Tech Music Schools) for the past decade.
 
I offer lessons for students of all ages, levels and abilities and commit to work within the goals that you set for your drumming journey. My students include weekly casuals who come to learn something new just as much as professionals who need guidance with their technique, timing, endurance...
 
My rates are:
• One to One. 1hour,  £40
• One to One. 2hours, £65
• 45min "Junior rate" (up to 13yo), £30
• 15% discount for 10 lessons block booking
 
Teaching:
As a tutor I became part of the teaching staff at Drumtech (now BIMM London) shortly after completing my course. There, I have taught hundreds of drummers on degree and diploma courses. My approach to the discipline is at the core of what my drum faculty, Drumdrill, is about and over the years I have put my energy to promote and guide my students with great success. 
 
Here are some of the areas I work on to help you achieve your musical goals:
        • Groove playing: understanding and achieving good Time, Sound and Feel in musical context.
        • Hands/Feet: Technique: ergonomics, grips, position, mechanics&motions, methods.
        • Rhythmic Studies: pulse, subdivisions, placements, groupings.
        • Practice Method & Creative Systems: What and How you work is far more valuable than how much you work – be smart!
        • Styles Studies: Play along to various tracks, ranging from Pop and Rock to Funk, Jazz and Metal
        • Coordination & Independence: Balance and motions concepts, 3-way and 4-way coordination, Polyrhythms studies
        • Vocabulary: rudiments, stickings, fills, phrasing, soloing
        • Reading & Transcribing: Music Notations; note value and relationship.
 
About Me:
I started playing drums and percussion at the age of 10 and had my professional debut at 17 playing for french artist RoBERT.
In 2006 I relocated to London to study at Drumtech (where I was awarded best Performer of the year) and since then have become an in-demand player working for a wide range of artists and productions around the UK and Europe.
I currently performs and record with London outfit WE-ARE-Z; up and coming artist Stealth and regular theatre productions.
Recently, I also performed in Europe with the band Crystal Fighters, UK 90’s best Reef and shared the stage with the Prophets Of Rage.
My experience playing with many different artists has allowed me to become a very versatile and reliable player which has taken me to perform on many tours in UK and Europe, as well as TV and Radio shows: The Royal Albert, Reading And Leeds festival, L’Olympia (Paris), The Palladium, Pinkpop, Rock Am Ring, Airwaves, Royal Variety Performance, X-Factor etc..
Below is a selection of artists and producers I particularly enjoyed working with in the last few years:
