About Simon Blake
I am an experienced drummer, session artist and educator of over 10 years. I am a versatile musician, studying both classical and jazz and performing in a wide range of musical settings. 
 
Spending the last 12 years in Cardiff, I studied Orchestral Percussion at Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama after spending a year in America, studying at the School of Worship, Kenosha, USA.  I went on to do an MA in Jazz at RWCMD.  
 
From teaching in schools, privately and lecturing in university, I have seen many of my students go onto careers in music themselves.  
 
As a performer I have played with multiple ensembles whether as a drummer or percussionist, for local artists, worship leaders, jazz/latin ensembles, or classical music ensembles.  
 
I am currently the Drum Module Tutor at Nexus ICA, Coventry. 
 
My primary focus for all students is to have fun and enjoy playing your instrument! As a multi-instrumentalist, I will play bass or piano in our lessons to enhance your musical skills.  
 
Whether your focus is graded exams, school/university assessments, or are simply looking to further your abilities, we will create a plan that works for you using a variety of resources.   Beginners to advanced, all genres/styles covered.
 
Lessons will be held at Nexus Ica, 71 Albany Rd, Coventry CV5 6JR.
 
Lessons are £32/hr  
 
This facility is equipped with a professional drum kit and a PA system. Lessons are on an acoustic drum set.  
 
I am an MU member, and have a current DBS check.
