David Hole



Since completing my instrumental degree in 2010, I have taught the drum kit to students of all ages and abilities every week, ranging from 5 year olds having their first interaction with music, all the way to pensioners taking up a new hobby! It is vital when learning a new instrument for students to both feel excited to learn as well as grasping the fundamentals skills required. All of my lessons balance key concepts such as reading music and rudimental discipline with the thing which everybody wants to do: playing on the drum kit and having fun learning their favourite beats and songs! As a qualified teacher, I understand the developmental needs of younger learners, and pride myself in my use of skills based games and age appropriate activities for the youngest pupils to start their learning, as well as encouraging children who I teach to develop good habits for all walks of life, such as mental resilience and managing their routines to effectively practise. Drum kit lessons are currently available from my purpose built drum-studio in Little Stanion, just outside of Corby and I am also available for visiting lessons at students' own homes where they have a drum kit already set up.

    I would highly recommend David as a teacher. He is encouraging, enthusiastic and patient, and Jack always looks forward to his lessons!

  • Amanda (parent)
    I cannot recommend David enough! Both my boys have been taught by him from an early age and they not only learn drumming skills but general musicianship as well. Both boys have passed all of their exams with distinction and I am really pleased with their progress in such a short amount of time.

  • Connor (student)
    The moment I first asked him to teach me to play drums, he was on it straight away and taught me the best way he could. He is also really likeable and doesn't ever get angry!
