Testimonials and References

I had my first drum lesson with David in May 2011, his teaching technique is easy to understand, which made lessons lots of fun, and always manages to push you to your limits. I don't think my drumming would be at the level it is now, if it wasn't for his expert tuition. A truly awesome drum teacher.
Steve Mathan

David Richards was my drum tutor for three years and taught me from a complete novice. He was patient with me but also set targets for me to challenge myself. If I was unsure about something he would explain what was required. He made the lessons informative and interesting as well as fun. He was punctual, informative, professional and friendly.
