All ages and all levels of experience welcome.
My name is Niko Friesen, I'm a professional musician and drum instructor based in Vancouver, and I'm currently taking on new students. I am available to do home lessons.
I am equally comfortable teaching beginners and active professionals alike, developing technique, theory, reading, stylistic study, improvisational and professional approaches.
$60 an hour.
I studied at the Capilano U Jazz School, taught private lessons at the Pacific Drum Centre for five years, and have maintained a select independent teaching schedule for the past fifteen years.
I've played on well over a hundred records and have toured extensively with a wide range of artists, including: Shawn Hook, Kelly Rowland, Hannah Georgas, Jane Siberry, Marcie Playground, Carly Rae Jepsen, and The Zolas. I've performed many times in the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Vancouver Folk Festival, and various rock, pop, and Country music festivals, including Sun Fest and Squamish Valley Music festival. I've also played in the pit band for three runs of Avenue Q at the Arts Club theatre.
If you have any questions, or to book a lesson, please email.
