About Bruce Treasure

I’ve been drumming since 1981 and teaching drum kit professionally in schools and privately since 1992. My practical drumming experience ranges from gigs to tours, shows and concerts, recording and exams. I've played many styles from punk, rock, jazz, and Latin to classical timpani. (I also play and teach guitar professionally).

I believe learning drums should be as much about ‘fun’, as it is a worthwhile skill. For this reason, the bulk of my teaching material comes from drum patterns or beats which are easily accessible to a learner without much prior knowledge. I find patterns great for developing co-ordination (of all limbs!) and musically as each one relates to a style. This, along with some essential technique, music theory and accompanying instruction, will produce a student good enough to be joining a band, or getting competitive with exams. Obviously with some practice though!
I have a large folio of studies and songs, collected over the years, which can take a student from preliminary to intermediate level. I use guitar where ever possible to play along with the student drummer.
I live in Warminster Wiltshire where I have a teaching room but can travel. I can teach both individually or groups. I charge a variable rate to reflect the need of the learner, which is usually decided after an introductory lesson.

Certificates and qualifications:

Grade 8 distinction in drum kit and Certificate in teaching from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.

A recent CRB certificate and musician’s union membership.
