Kasey Peters

Drums.

Biography

I run a drum kit teaching studio in Belfast. I use two kits, one for the student and one for me. This is great for teaching and saves a lot of getting up and down time. We play side by side facing the same direction. This promotes better communication and enables demonstrations to be easily imitated. We do not face a wall, but rather play out to the room as in a gig or performance. Low volume acoustic drums and cymbals are used to ensure total hearing protection (no electronic kits). Slow down apps can be used to learn songs at a relaxed tempo. I teach in 5 x 30 minute weekly lessons block booked for £70.00. You may continue on for as long as you wish. I am happy to do a one-off taster session (£15.00 for 30 minutes) with no further obligation, for you to decide if you'd like to continue. Catering for all ages, styles, abilities and needs. Ample street parking and bicycle lock up just outside. Bus routes 5A & 4E are very handy. Friendly and encouraging lessons!

  • I've wanted to learn the drums since I was 8, but it took me until I was over 40 to actually pick up a drumstick and go for it! I was worried a drum teacher would think I was having a mid life crisis, so I was very thankful to come across Kasey Peters who accepted and encouraged me right from the start. There are good drummers and good drum teachers: Kasey is both. She has thoroughly prepared me for graded exams and we've also had a lot of fun playing along to different styles of music. We always have a laugh and no matter how hard my day at work has been, I always leave my drum lesson in a better mood than when I went in. I'm so glad that I followed my dream to learn to play the drums and very glad that I came across Kasey who has helped to make my dream come true!
