What I Do
My name is Andy Jennings and I’m a drum teacher from York.
I offer expert drum kit tuition and workshops to schools, privately in my home studio, and corporately to businesses in the York area. Lessons are designed to focus on what the individual needs and cover a wide range of musical genres; from rock bands to orchestras and everything in between. Complete beginners to advanced, players of all ages at a pace to suit.
I teach at a number of primary and secondary schools across the city
Lessons take place in a fully equipped studio space at my home in Stamford Bridge
I offer a variety of drumming workshops for team building events to businesses in the area
I’ve played in venues from Murrayfield to Shepherds Bush Empire to Leeds and Reading Festivals, supporting artists such as Bryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Paulo Nutini and Elbow. I also have TV and radio experience and have played live sessions on Radio 1 (Maida Vale Studios), Radio 2, XFM London and XFM Manchester
These instrumental qualifications are recognised by colleges/universities and introduce students to a variety of different ‘popular’ styles of music. Don’t be put off by the ‘Rock’ in Rock School as it’s a syllabus that covers a wide range of genres and provides a great introduction on how to play them. I have entered students for over 250 exams to date and am pleased to boast an exceptional pass rate.
