Looking for band members for a new project

I’m working on a new Rock covers band playing a mix of well known rock covers and that cool but retro sound;

Current songs on my list are

  • Bartholomew- Silent comedy
  • Entrance song- The Black Angels
  • Consoler of the lonely- The raconteurs
  • Joker and the Theif- Wolfmother
  • Electric man- Rival sons
  • Keep on Swinging- Rival songs
  • Out of the black- Royal blood
  • Lights out- Royal blood

The list is obviously just a starting point but hopefully gives you an idea of intended direction.

Singers, guitarists, and keyboard players get in touch- matt@seymourdrums.com and lets get this awesome band going.

 

Proud day

Hi everyone. It’s impossible for me not to blurt out to the world how proud I am as a drum teacher right now. We have just received the pinnacle of academic achievement I have ever seen in my 14 years of teaching.    For some years now I have been teaching a young lad called Charlie Westbrook.  He is the perfect example of what can be achieved with the right level of commitment, enthusiasm and love for music.  So anyway, this young man just took his Grade 8 in Drumkit (Trinity Guildhall syllabus) and received a result of a pass of 99%!!   Knowing how tough the marking and scrutiny is under Trinity Guildhall and the requirements at this level and versatility required compared to rock syllabus’, this is an incredible achievement.  And it doesn’t stop there. He’s hungry for more.

NEW DEAL TO HELP WITH COSTS CREATES VERY AFFORDABLE TUITION

We have a new deal available (which is unique to us), which allows you to save lots of money.

Basically you can book your lessons and learn in a pair instead of one to one, and split the fee between you paying only £10 each (half the normal fee).

Of course this means your learning time will be split between two but you can actually learn a lot by observing each other and learning together.   You will still each receive the same material each.   You may bring and book in with a friend or let us assign a student.

RULES APPLY!     You may find to begin with you are having a lesson one to one to begin with depending upon demand.  During those periods you can remain on the £10 rate.   If the other student drops out a new one will be assigned as available.   If you decide at some point to move to One to One lessons, you will need to book in separately and pay the normal £20 rate.     Lessons should normally be paid for in a block of 4 in advance (unless I agree to weekly terms).  Lessons are generally weekly.  Cancelled agreed lesson dates should be paid for in full.  If for some reason I am unable to provide a lesson in a particular week (which is rare), I will refund that week in full.

Please turn up on time- Not half an hour early or half and hour late. We have quite a tight schedule and its not fair to interrupt other peoples lessons.

To book call or email.

We look forward to you joining the fun.

Great Gig at The Grapes

We had a great gig.   Fist gig for us where we had to squeeze up a bit.  Amazing how you can work these things though.  Bit of a slow start but picked up quite a decent audience as the night went on. I’m really pleased to see how the material is going down.  Seem to be picking up a good rep and also gaining new followers all the time.

We all felt a bit more relaxed I think too. Started to gel more as a band.  The whole process is much easier now we have an established set so we are taking our time adding new material and continuing to tighten up on what we have.

Next stop Great stukeley near Huntingdon.
