About this pro

. Nick Saume Drum Lessons •Are you a beginner without any direction? Are you unable to play what you want? •Tired of your hands feeling unbalanced? Forearms sore? Tense while playing? •Having trouble keeping up with fast tempos? •Is your back chronically sore when sitting at the drums? I can help you . . . I can teach you to overcome these issues To create balance :) I begin by having a phone conversation with you where we can establish a sense of our compatibility, comfort level and direction. I like working with beginners; a good teacher can help you get there faster. Teaching you the METHOD, a uniquely simple approach, will help you concentrate on finger control, independence, speed, endurance and to perfect balance between your hands and feet, all in a relaxed manner. Lessons are written expressly for the individual student! You can look forward to learning a discipline and a philosophy and relaxed approach to the drums rather than styles of music and then you can take it wherever you want to go. I also incorporate the "Moeller Method" taught to me by some very talented and dedicated drummer/percussionists. This is an approach to drumming using biomechanics and ergonomics to support smoother, injury-free playing. Your own body will teach you how to accomplish this. Your speed and power will increase as well. Having your own drums, sticks, (maybe a drum pad) and cymbals etc. is always a PLUS :) ... BUT NOT A REASON NO TO CONTACT ME! We’ll start by working on: * Drum pads and a metronome, to perfect your inner rhythms and relaxing techniques. * Mirrors, so you can self-monitor your hands and body mechanics comfort level, so you can easily correct your technique. * By using mirrors one can create a visual approach that encourages concentration on the consistent, even sound of your sticks . . . bass drum pedal . . . and hi-hats pedal and posture. My home/studio is my preferred place to teach. There I have a drum set, congas, several pads, pedals and mirrors. Only people who are interested in learning and playing, . . . just a beginner? . . .All are welcome . . .(boy or girl / woman or man) . . . OR a working professional who would find this helpful for them, CONTACT ME, let's talk - can't hurt? . . . NO SOLICITING, PLEASE. . Teaching anyone who enjoys playing drums at any age to learn the proper way to play in a very relaxed manner.
