Quality Drum Lessons In Vancouver. In-Home or In-Studio. Over 20 Years Teaching Experience.

Methodology

There are many directions that drum lessons can take and there is much flexibility that I bring depending on my students desires and learning style. To develop a strong foundation I want my students to understand the importance of technical development, how their movement and physical approach to the drums effects not only the sound produced but technical ability. Likewise, I want my students to be able to analyze music both through musical notation and the learn-by-ear approach. Concurrent to the above aspects is stylistic development which includes songs my students know and like along with broadening their knowledge and understanding of the many musical styles from around the world.

Background

Hi there! I’m John Hildebrand, Principal Instructor at Drumroll. My degree in Percussion Performance is from UBC. I’ve been teaching drums in Vancouver for over 20 years and in that time I’ve developed a friendly, supportive and encouraging approach to teaching drums that respects every students individual learning style and musical interests. In every lesson I’m constantly drawing on my experience, knowledge and passion for teaching drums to give each student the best experience I can.
