About Chris Nagel

I'm an experienced professional drummer - both as a performer and as a teacher - and maintain a relentless gigging schedule. If you are serious about your music and have a desire to improve, I currently have a limited number of available lesson slots. I have studied extensively with Bob Armstrong, Dave Hassell, Allan Cox, Jim Blackley, and Billy Cobham (amongst many others). I teach from my drum studio although Skype lessons are also a possibility. Lessons are tailored to the individual and my only student requirement is that you must be willing to put in some quality practice time.

Topics covered can include:

Styles (including pop, rock, funk, jazz, latin and world music,drum 'n' bass etc.)
Rudiments and snare drum playing
Getting comfortable with a click
Practice skills
Musical theatre and pantomime skills
Influential players
Music theory
Transcription and chart-writing techniques
Recording and studio techniques
Working effectively with a band
Grades (Trinity-Guildhall, Rockschool, LCM if necessary)
Audition preparation (for music college, band, ships, and so on)
Pretty much anything else
