Drum Tutor

Richard Wainwright

“I have been playing the drums since the age of 13, and teaching drums at XYZ Music Academy since February 2015. Following on from being a student at XYZ Music Academy and achieving my Grade 8 with Distinction, teaching was the natural next step, and I have thoroughly enjoyed passing on my knowledge thus far. My time at XYZ Music Academy has allowed me to teach well over 100 students, ranging from the ages of 4 to 70, in a range of settings such as schools, private 1-2-1, shared and group lesson formats. I have also led classroom tuition in a number of schools in the form of percussion workshops. I have sat countless students through their Grade Exams and coached them for our annual summer concert – building a great and long standing rapport with each individual.

I have continued to study music in far greater depth, developing an appreciation for a diverse range of genres. I have also developed a detailed understanding of live performances through being a member of an original’s band – performing at world renowned venues such as The Garage, The Electric Ballroom, and London KOKO. This has enabled me to offer an insight into the world of music performance based on my own experiences. As such I am able to offer a wealth of music knowledge that goes beyond what can be taught from a textbook.”
