I'm Nick Lowczowski, a British born professionally qualified drum teacher and musician with over 20 years' teaching experience both in schools and privately, and nearly 30 years' performing experience at the highest level. I currently work out of my studio in Wimbledon South London where I have been offering the highest quality drum tuition since 2003.
I am a member of the Musician's Union and am fully DBS/CRB checked.
All aspects of modern drumming are covered in the most comprehensive drum lessons available. Whether you are a complete beginner or advanced player you are guaranteed to make fast progress and be challenged to reach your full potential. Each lesson is tailored to the individual to ensure the most effective results, all in a fun and relaxed environment. The studio is equipped with two top of the range Sonor acoustic drum kits, P.A. backing tracks and sequencers running off a Mac and Logic pro, basically everything we need to prepare you to be the best drummer and musician you can be.
For younger students I have developed my own system, which ensures that they are playing and understanding within the first lesson.
Over the years I have taught literally hundreds of students and come highly recommended. Past students include professional players and other drum teachers, not to mention actors and performance artists. I also have comprehensive experience of teaching people with a wide range of disabilities.
You can be confident that you will be getting the very best tuition available and should not settle for any less!
I am a member of cutting edge bands Linear Sphere and X-Ray Quartet and do countless sessions and gigs as a sideman in the live jazz scene, and function band circuit.
A list of just some of the concepts we will cover:
Preparation for grades and exams (including grades 1-8, GCSE, A-Level, Degree) – 100% success rate! It should be noted that I can prepare you for any qualification you chose but this will be an addition to the key material we will cover, unfortunately too many teachers follow and depend heavily on grade syllabuses as a matter of course for their teaching material. I do not.
