About Dean

Over the last 15 years, I have gained a unique style, sound and feel through the immersion of mixed musical influences, Studio Sessions, Teaching, Music Workshops and Touring work supporting a variety of Organisations, Record Labels & Artists. This continually updated expertise helps me keep on the pulse in creating the most interesting up to date drumming courses.

Philosophy, Style, Expertise:

After your formal education, you enter the most critical phase of your life – a second practical education known as ‘The Apprenticeship’…. ‘Mastery’ Robert Greene.

Dino’s comprehensive Introductory course provides all the guidance and tools you will need to evolve your playing from the ground up ‘leaving no stones unturned’.

Starting from the essential basics, each module is carefully designed to open and grow new pathways of the mind and body.

MODERN TECHNIQUES – From Buddy Rich to Jojo Mayer, practical demonstrations from the oldest to most modern systems of Master Drummers, will allow you to gravitate to your own choice of the most efficient Technique.

READING REVEALED – Understand the fundamentals of reading Drum Music and follow moving Drum Charts on screen, learn to transcribe your own drum beats with Sibelius 7 Notation software.

TRINITY APPROVED EXAM PREP – Support provided should you wish to advance through drum grades to a diploma with this Internationally recognised exam board. Rockschool syllabus

TRICKS, TIPS AND SECRETS – revealed on relaxation, energy efficiency, speed, co-ordination, endurance & tuning.

MULTI MEDIA LEARNING – access a huge archive of Drumming DVDS & online study media, iPad, iTouch & iPhone Metronome Apps. Tempo 2 Metronome, and a host of other audio, visual and aural aids.

RECORDING/ SESSION PLAYING – Get Your Groove On with guidance on working with a metronome (click track), playing ‘In The Pocket,’ the importance of listening, dynamics and simplicity. Learn about microphone placement and Recording with D.A.W.S. (Digital Audio Workstations).

GOOD TRANSPORT LINKS Stamford Brook Tube (District Line) just 2 minutes walk.

BENEFITS OF DRUMMING – Drumming can: reduce tension, anxiety and stress, produce deeper levels of self- awareness (through brain synchrony), create a deep sense of connectedness with self and others, induce natural altered states of consciousness, boost the immune system and create an infinite medium for individual self realisation.

I can teach from home.
