About Lauren Greaves

Jam Jar Music offers drum lessons taught by Lauren Greaves to pupils of all ages from the purpose built “Jam Jar” in Derby. As well as one-to-one instrumental lessons there are many other things to get involved in from filming performance videos to taking part in sessions, clubs and band practices. The aim of Jam Jar Music is to provide pupils with real life musical skills and above all, a passion for music. The lessons are tailored to suit the needs, goals and learning styles of the individual pupils, whether that be to take graded exams, play in a band, write or simply to have fun.

I started drumming at the age of thirteen and haven't put the sticks down since! I completed my initial training by achieving a distinction for my grade eight drumming exam and then went on to study Popular and World Musics at the University of Leeds followed by a Master's Degree in Music Management at the University of Sheffield. I have a DBS check, am a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians and have trained in SEN and EAL learning. As well as teaching drum lessons I am still a working drummer. I currently play in a number of bands ranging from ska punk to Bruce Springsteen tributes and have been lucky enough to play gigs and festivals all over the UK and beyond.

“Our son, has been having drum lessons with Lauren from Jam Jar Music, for two years now. He really looks forward to each lesson and has come a long way since he first picked up his drum sticks. He has also started learning to play bass guitar with Lauren too. She is an excellent teacher and we think she is amazing”
— Parent

“We feel very lucky to have Lauren teaching our son. Lauren’s enthusiasm is reflected in her lovely ability to see him as an individual and designs her lessons around his interests in order for him to fulfil his potential. Even creating pieces of music just for him, Lauren’s recent ‘Luigi’s Mansion’ resulted in Arthur having little interest in anything other than his drums for some time."
— Parent

“Lauren is a very kind teacher and makes learning the drums lots of fun. She takes it in steps so it’s easier to learn. Drumming with Lauren is awesome.”
— Pupil, Age 9
