Martyn James – Bath Drum Studio

I have over 25 years playing experience and 7 years teaching from my private studio here in Widcombe, Bath. As well as teaching and playing, I have been Course Director for the annual Rhythmfest summer school for the past 3 years.

I take students from the age of 11 upwards, from beginner to advanced. Sessions take place in my studio on full acoustic kits with recording facilities if required. I use the Drumsense teaching framework for beginners, and also as an occasional reference for intermediate players. I also have a large range of books, DVDs, playalong tracks and my own material which we dip in and out of as required.

New students can expect to be up and running with simple grooves played along to music and the basics of reading within a couple of lessons. It is important to realise that work needs to be done outside of lessons (on a pad if no kit is available) to get the most from our time together, and I will assist with putting together a practice plan specific to each individual student.

For more established drummers I can tailor lessons according to need, whether that be focussing on technique, groove development, coordination or any one of the many hurdles you may have experienced!
