Re: Phil Gould

It's good to know others appreciate his playing. Freedom Someday is a cracker.

He's still got it though. Check:

Phil Gould

So, Phil Gould.

Could he be the world's most underrated groove player? Had a stretch as a founder member of Level 42 who he left in 87. Hasn't done much since but has recently released two albums...

Re: When a student gets too good too quickly

I agree with you. Totally.

A true reflection of your standard should be based on going into the exam room and playing the pieces from cold. I think it's ridiculous that you can spend as long as...

Re: When a student gets too good too quickly

You're right.

In no way do I try to push them to my tastes - I'm just expressing myself within the forum.

They can learn the back catalogue of Coldplay then leave, having achieved what they set...

Re: When a student gets too good too quickly

As a private tutor the grades are optional and I only suggest them if I feel they are beneficial, or better put, that the student is ready for the process. Most of my students are between the ages of...

Re: When a student gets too good too quickly

Cheers mate, some nice ideas in there.

I absolutely agree about the trinity thing. TG G6 certainly removes any arrogance that may have accrued after completing RS G8. It makes one realise that...

Re: When a student gets too good too quickly

An amazing response!

It's opened up quite a complex issue I think.

Teaching is a double edged sword at times - You have to have your process, but you don't want to be so dogmatic that you...

Re: When a student gets too good too quickly

A quick amendment: In the UK there are a few 'Grading' systems that a student can go through, usually Grades 1 - 8 which give them a fairly solid range of skills to build on. The two main ones are...

When a student gets too good too quickly

Hi everyone,

I've been teaching this guy (16 years old) for about a year now (I'm a drum teacher from the north of England) and he came to me as a precocious metal-head - you know the sort: likes...

Re: Have you ever met a famous drummer?

It may or may not have been one of those guys. I suppose he's strayed very far from the green grass of home though... ;)

Re: Jazz Solo Help

Have a strong sense of the pulse and make sure you are comfortable with that and know where the one is - always. Then let your technique sing. For me it's technique plus knowledge through listening -...

Re: Have you ever met a famous drummer?

Met one 'name' who shall remain nameless but who certainly played in a 'high voltage' band. He told me the difference between me and him was that I loved drumming but remained, comparitively, an...

Re: Best jazz albums(with great jazz drumming)?

Question & Answer - Pat Metheny. Roy Haynes modern yet classic. Very influential for me. Plus a million others.
