Hello and thanks for stopping by my Drum Tutor’s page!

My name is Mark Hale & I am a freelance Drummer based in Leytonstone.

I have been working professionally for the past right years and have a wide range of playing experiences from Function bands (Top 40 covers at weddings/ corporate events), Musicals/ Pantomime/ Theatre productions, Cruise Ships & currently running a successful Jazz residency in Bedford.

My own teaching experience started at the age of 16 and since then I’ve been giving lessons on and off over the course of my career.

I have a passion for music and that’s the basis that all my Teaching is structured around;
Musicality and learning to play songs as well as focusing on the Technical aspects that will crop up through different pieces of music.

For the more advanced students we can delve deeper into the areas of Drumming that are important to a working professional: Being able to read Charts, Stylistic Awareness, and a continuation into developing Technique, strengthening your sense of time & rhythm.

For this wanting to go through the graded systems then I encourage either the Trinity Courses or Rock school exam board.

If you’re interested in having lessons please do not hesitate to get in touch! I teach at Audio Underground rehearsal studios in Leyton :).
