Testimonials and References

Our 12 year old son has been having weekly drum lessons with Ben for 5 years now, he loves it and is well on the way to grade 5.

Ben is a fantastic teacher and mentor, offering support in lessons but always ready to offer support and guidance. He’s definitely helped our son grow in confidence.

As Ben has been through the learning process himself he understands the challenges faced and is great at flexing lessons to keep the interest going, for example, adding in different songs and techniques when progress has slowed.

I’d highly recommend Ben to anyone looking to learn to play drums, a brilliant teacher and a great guy.

– Matt Symonds (Parent)

After being taught by Ben for over a year and a half, I can say it was worth every penny as he is patient, helpful, adaptive and overall a kind human being; his technical ability is of a high level which gives him the ability to teach all levels and ages of players.

One example of his adaptive nature was when I came into a lesson with a bizarre groove that I didn't quite understand, so he broke it down piece by piece and scored it for me, which was really helpful and valuable for my understanding of notation as a drummer.

He prepared me for my journey as a music degree student and musician.

– Niall Wilson (Student)

Our son has been with Ben Glover for one-to-one lessons for the past seven years. Starting at six years old, he has been tutored and guided by Ben through Rock School Drum grades up to Grade 8, achieving excellent results throughout and developing great skill in technique and performance.

Our son thoroughly enjoys his lessons, and Ben has become a mentor to him as a musician. A highly experienced musician and a patient, professional and passionate teacher and we continue to be thoroughly impressed with Ben's services.

We would highly recommend him as a music tutor to learners of all ages.
