Testimonials and References

"After just 5 minutes with Billy I knew I’d found brilliant tutor. By the end of that first session I was reading music and playing along to several tracks. Not only is Billy extremely professional with a warm and approachable personality, he understands the motivations of his students and tailors his teaching around their needs.
Billy instinctively knows when to emphasise the technical aspects of playing and when to stand back and let me trust my musical ear and just go for it. He generously shares his knowledge and skills (it’s a joy to watch and learn from his demonstrations) and his focus is always on learning. Every session he encourages me to push myself further and I always leave feeling inspired and energised.
If you want to learn how to play the drums I highly recommend Billy; you will not be disappointed." J - South London
