About Omar Qureshi

Omar is an experienced drummer and musician with over 18 years playing experience.  He played drums in various Birmingham bands during 2003-05 and a number of North-West bands between 2005-08. During this time he studied and was awarded a BA (hons) Music practice from the University of Central Lancashire with a specialism and focus on percussion and popular composition. Omar teaches many drum styles and techniques and prepares students for the rigours of 'live' performance through preparing them for grade exams. He teaches from both 'Rockschool' and 'Trinity Guildhall' boards (on request). The teaching studio houses a 'real-feel' electronic drum kit which is used for teaching. Also, Omar uses music recording equipment to facilitate recording, playback and improvisation. The studio also contains a piano and various guitars which Omar uses to accompany students and get them used to playing with other musicians as well as improvising, time keeping, following notated parts and appraising.
Omar gained a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in 2011 and currently teaches music at a large inner-city Birmingham school where he also leads on music curriculum development. He is trained in the 'Kodaly' methodology of music teaching and uses some of these methods in his teaching.
