OUR TEACHERS

EMMA MILNE

Founder and teacher at Milne Drum Tuition 

Hi drummers! I have been lucky enough to work in primary and secondary schools across Swindon, teaching group sessions and tutoring 1:1. I teach students of all ages and abilities and believe that confidence comes first when learning something new. I will always aim to create a fun, positive learning environment and whether you’re looking for structured learning plans or you just want to play for fun, the lesson will always be suited to you.

 As well as being passionate about my instrument, I am hugely passionate about teaching too. I offers a balance of practical and theory in lessons and enjoys teaching students how to read and write music. I immerse myself in to developing knowledge of different learning styles and I am constantly improving my ability on the drum kit; absorbing as many different types of music as possible. I always place an emphasis on the importance of time keeping, feel and groove as those are some of our most important jobs!

Emma teaches intermediate to advanced drummers  of all ages at the studio Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 4.45pm and online on Friday from 4:15pm
