About Daniel Smithson

Playing the drums, or more specifically any percussion instrument, is probably the earliest form of music that man created. It’s not difficult to imagine cavemen discovering the tapping and beating of rocks and twigs to create beats. It is this innate quality of rhythm that makes drumming the most accessible and attractive instrument that kids gravitate at an early age. I am a professional drummer and a drum tutor, and I have been teaching for the past 4 years through private lessons and also at three secondary schools. I normally teach through grades 1 to 8, guiding my students’ sight reading and playing along different songs from various genres. My lessons cover everything from basic drum playing and rudimentary techniques, to playing along to the latest tunes from pop, rock, hip-hop and R&B, to advanced lessons such as polyrhythms and odd-time signatures and applications in music known for complex rhythms like jazz, Afro-Caribbean, and progressive-rock. I adapt my lesson according to my student’s needs, always making sure that they leave each session with a sense of confidence and accomplishment. I believe that helping set the expectations of parents and students with drum lessons is really the key to making a productive and worthwhile tutoring experience. I'm always honest and I always think about what's best for my students when considering the length of the programme. Whether it’s your kid’s first time being in front of a drum kit, or you want to be a better player in a band, you can count on me to provide excellent drum lessons that will take your drumming skills to new heights. Please contact me and I look forward to hearing from you.

PAUL A.'s review on May 11, 2020

Daniel is reliable and solid drummer who always goes the extra mile to learn and practice repertoire. He has a meticulous attention to detail that doesn't stop with the music. His organisation skills and willingness to help with whatever it takes to get the job done are what sets him aside from many other great players. Daniel's warm personality and subtle sense of humour make him a joy to work with.

Lorraine E.'s review on May 05, 2020

I would recommend Daniel without any reservation. He has now tutored my 11 year old son, for over 2 years, in drumming.  He has guided us through the examination process and is always available inbetween lessons, to answer any queries or to help ensure that the learning is on track. He is patient and explains things very well, in a plain and simple way for younger children to be able to grasp; he then gets them to explain things back to him so he knows they have fully understood. We have recently had to switch to online tuition with Daniel due to the Covid lockdown; lessons have been just as well taught, interactive, well structured and professional.

Team B.'s review on Jul 03, 2018

(This review was taken via email through Bidvine) Daniel is a skilled drum tutor and works well with children. His explanations are clear and he sets and follows up on homework. He is familiar with a wide range and styles and music. I highly recommend him.Marilyn Johnson Marilyn_smithson@hotmail.com

I have a strong passion for music and drumming. I would like to pass my knowledge onto the younger generations. I enjoy teaching other musicians/ drummers how to read music and the basic understanding of music theory as well as the basic knowledge of the background of the instrument. I have been a d
