Steve (Tutor in Leeds)
Information about Steve
I run Hand-drumming Drum Circles.
It's teaching without teaching: students "play" with - and on - their drums, so that "learning to drum" doesn't become a problem.
I love to awaken the sense of rhythm and fun in people who think that they haven't got either.
Availability: I have regular term-time classes on Monday and Wednesday afternoons, and Thursday evenings. Outside that, I'm generally available.
Willing to travel: 30 miles
Experience: Hand-drummer since 1993; teacher since 1996; facilitator since 2001.
I've been a full-time Drum Circle Facilitator since 2005, and have brought rhythm and fun to everyone from Cubs to Corporations; schools to special needs; mental health to adult ed.
I've been the drum teacher of choice at every one of the twice-yearly Days of Dance in Saltaire near Bradford for the past five years.
I have run the hand-drum classes at North Yorkshire County Council's 3-day "Culture Shock" youth event for several years.
I have run the weekly Hand-drumming class at Leeds' Swarthmore Education Centre since 2005
