My name is Deepak and I am might be that ideal tutor you have been looking for! Teaching for me is not just another job, but a huge responsibility and one of my biggest passions. To be able to pass on knowledge in an effective way and to make a change in the student's life is what I intend to do.
I graduated with a dual degree in classical composition and percussion performance from Berklee College of Music, Boston, in December 2012. I am also a computer musician, doing research in music technology (building hardware interfaces and writing audio software, etc.). I had the opportunity to attend the Vic Firth teaching seminar in 2009 with drum set Professor Skip Hadden. I was the drum set instructor at Chetana Music Academy, Thrissur, Kerala, for almost 2 years, where I had the opportunity to work with students of all ages. I also privately tutored a few selected advanced students on drum set, musicianship, composition, etc. Prior to my music studies at Berklee College of Music, I completed an undergraduate level B. Tech degree in engineering physics from one of the most prestigious institutions in India, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.
My teaching methodology favors a hands-on approach and I encourage interaction between the student and myself. I also supplement the experience with ample other resources in the form of audio, video, internet links, worksheets, etc. I try to inspire the students to be critical thinkers and boost their confidence levels thereby preparing them for further challenges they might face later on!
Looking forward to hearing from you.
