Limited Slots for Online Drum Lessons

Hi all,

I will be opening limited slots for online drum lessons. Timing is subject to availability.

If you are keen to study drumset playing with me from the comfort of your own home, and you have a kit, Zoom web conferencing app, and have at least a bluetooth speaker or amplifier to connect the audio from your backing tracks and/or electronic drumkit, we can make this work. I have years of experience helping students improve their drumming skills and score above expectations at drumkit examinations. I am also passionate about working with students to overcome their challenges, fears, and doubts about their drumming abilities. Students 12 years and above of all skill levels, and have been playing drums for some time are welcome.

How would my online lessons be useful to you?

Whether you would like to work on technique, sight-reading, co-ordination, a specific genre, or work through a drumkit exam syllabus from either Trinity College, Trinity Rock and Pop, and Rockschool, I offer competent and effective guidance that is tailored specifically to your learning goals.

Sidewalk Traveller by Thomas Willemsen

Hi all,

It’s been awhile. I hope you guys are keeping safe out there!

It gives me great pleasure to share with you the new album by singer-songwriter, Thomas Willemsen.

Like on his previous studio album, Sentimental Ride, which was his debut studio effort, it was highly enjoyable from start to end working with the same band. The bass, drums, basic keyboard and acoustic guitar parts were done in a single 8 hour session for 8 of the 9 tracks that had drums on it. We convened again some two weeks later to record the last track on the album.

Shout out to Tony Go of Greenroom Suite who did a wonderful job capturing the performances with a superb microphone selection, a classic analogue mixing desk, and his deft skills with Pro Tools. He truly brought brightness and clarity to the mixes in his own unique way. I can also truly say that I did some of my best recording work up to this point at his studio.

Hope you enjoy this album! This album is for sale at Apple iTunes and all proceeds go straight to Thomas himself.
