I am a world leading expert on solving drummers injury problems and indeed achieved the accolade in 2016 of becoming the first and only non-medical member of BAPAM's (British Association for Performing Arts Medicine) training team for drumming related issues.
Unlike so many other so-called 'experts' who offer advice on certain elements of the problems that can be encountered by drummers (e.g. posture or kit ergonomics), I have - through over 25 years of study, experimenting and application (not to mention over 40 years of playing) - developed a unique, holistic approach. This is the ONLY responsible way to tackle such issues, as no one drummer is the same.
I see many people offering solutions that are simply not fit-for-purpose. For instance, go on YouTube and you will find 'experts' on Alexander technique trying to 'shoe-horn' this method on to drummers. Don't get me wrong, Alexander technique is great, but it was never conceived for anything remotely relating to what drummers do. In any case, as I mentioned above, looking at one aspect of a drummer's playing in question is not the answer.
Also - and this is vital - seeking impersonal advice online is potentially dangerous; no self-respecting practitioner can try to offer a solution without engaging with you in-person. AVOID anyone who claims they can!
So, should you find yourself in the unfortunate position of needing help in this area, please get in touch and I will devise a personal plan for you.
To give you an idea how this all works, there is a fixed fee based upon 2-3 sessions. The initial assessment is key and must be conducted one-to-one, preferably in-person but can be done via Skype or FaceTime. This can take up to 2 hours, but follow-up sessions - whether in-person or online - are typically 45 minutes to 1 hour. If more than 3 sessions are required, additional charges will apply.
YouTube, Skype and FaceTime are brands owned by Google Inc., Microsoft Corporation and Apple Inc., respectively.
