Best known for his work with Johnny Clegg, Robert Plant, Annie Lennox, Peter Gabriel and Alistair Andrews, drum master Barry van Zyl is offering lessons at the Paul Bothner Music Plumstead Superstore. His training includes drumset and more generalized rhythm lessons, for guitars and other instruments. With 20 years of international touring experience and a honours degree from the Musicians Institute, Hollywood, California, Barry is most definitely an awesome instructor.

This program is focused on the drumset, but is also available for any musician wanting a better grasp of rhythm to improve their timing and unlock their groove potential. The syllabus has been developed over the past ten years, and is a powerful tool to get results fast. No reading of notation necessary and no specific playing ability required. This is for professionals and enthusiasts. It works for all levels. Materials include a packaged syllabus and mp3 material which was produced and mixed for this programme.

  • His teaching is for any style or level.
  • This is not only drummers. For example a guitarist whom wants to work on rhythmic understanding/reading/groove playing would benefit.
  • He focuses on a defined syllabus aimed towards a student’s choice of musical direction.
  • He’s offering one-on-one lessons and lessons to small groups of two to three students.
