Students of all levels and ages are welcome. Simon finds it important that students feel comfortable enough to express themselves and make mistakes. They will get proper personal guidance whether they have ambitious goals or play purely for enjoyment. Anything goes, as long as they are committed and bring a good mood.
The following topics can be explored:
- Playing along to music
- Limb independence
- Music notation
- Applying harmonic theory on piano - Applying rhythmic theory on drums
The student will be encouraged to talk about interests, favourite genres, dreams and doubts. His/her wishes and learning goals will be discussed and the skills on the instrument will be evaluated. The student is responsible for bringing a pair of drumsticks and writing materials.
