Hi all,  Please note links to sign up and general info below.  Participation in the exams is a fantastic experience and great motivator for students, but is not a requirement.   

I am of course happy to guide and assist, but please be aware it is the students responsibility to choose the exam period that suits them, register, purchase books and organise fees.  You may need my "Enrol ID" to enter and pay the fee. Please see above. 

The website can definitely be confusing. Please note Rock School is UK based and operates in Australia through the AMEB organisation. The links below will make it simple I hope.

Song In A Lesson

Aim:

To teach you a song of your choice, from start to finish, in a single lesson. You will be provided with a professional quality chart, which has been tailored to suit your current skill and knowledge level in advance. (See Below for example)

How’s it work? 

1. Send me Youtube links to 5 songs you would like to learn 

2. I will choose the most appropriate song for the purpose 

3. I will prepare a complete and professional quality drum chart in advance, tailored to your skill level. 

4. Attend your lesson and learn/practice all necessary elements to play the song 

5. After your lesson is complete, I will make any edits necessary to make playing the song more achievable or challenging, then re print/send. 

Cost: $100 COVID 19 Special. (I expect to spend a minimum of 3 hours preparing, teaching and editing your chart) Usual Price $150

 

Please note:  

This lesson style may not be suitable for students at certain levels or stages of progress. I offer this service at my own discretion.
