Rhythm Magazine’s 4 star review of How to Teach Drums (Dec 2013 Issue), recommends anyone seriously thinking of getting into teaching to get a copy of the book and keep in it within reach.
I can’t tell you how pleased I am. Firstly, it’s great to feature in the pages of a magazine I’ve been reading since I was a kid, but most excitingly because respected drum teacher Colin Woolway (Founder of “Drumsense“) basically says that I’ve achieved exactly what I hoped to do when I started writing the book!
Here’s the review in full (reproduced from Rhythm Magazine’s December 2013 issue, page 20):
HOW TO TEACH DRUMS
A ‘kit-side’ companion for the budding teacher
“Claire Brock’s useful guide for drum tutors contains some really valuable advice and embraces not only lesson planning but contemporary aspects of teaching such as Skype teaching, website building and YouTube videos.
Claire delivers her wisdom in a user friendly manner, devoid of jargon, her tips on advertising and things like Public Liability are just the kind of advice an aspiring teacher could use, and she even has tips on dress sense, which if you’ve never taught in a school before, you might not have thought of. Anyone thinking seriously of getting into teaching should get a copy and keep it within reach. (CW)”
Thanks to Rhythm and Colin.
