Testimonials and References

Graham is fantastic and we feel so lucky to have found him! Since starting his drumming lessons with Graham, our shy seven year old son has grown in confidence and the difference is remarkable! We are so proud of the progress he is making with both his drumming and his school work due to Graham's positive influence. Graham teaches with great enthusiasm and patience, taking into consideration our son's musical interests as well as introducing him to new ones. His passion for drumming shines through, which makes his lessons fun and engaging and we would recommend him to anyone looking to learn!

'My 5 year old son started drum lessons with Graham in November 2018, and absolutely loves it! Graham is a fantastic teacher – he’s able to communicate with Corey in an effective way, ensuring that Corey can understand not just the fun, practical part of the lessons, but also the theory. He’s patient, funny, and adapts the lessons where necessary to ensure that Corey can get as much out of them as possible. Highly recommended.
Thank you, S

Can’t recommend Graham enough. A really lovely, kind and natural vibe and way with my son who is 10 years old. He clearly loves the drums and this comes through so clearly while he teaches my son with loads of options of styles and sheets and exercises to work from . My son is freely hooked . I would give Graham a 10/10 for his reliability and teaching skills. E.F.

My son harry has been having weekly lessons by Graham for a few months now and he has progressed way beyond what i expected.
Harry enjoys the lessons so much and he can't wait to see Graham each week because he is fun and easy going but really professional too, also very committed and I think this is why Harry has progressed so much, he loves going! Cheers Graham

My 7 year old son Daniel has been taught by Graham for some time now. Graham shows great skill and patience in maintaining Daniels interest, and he has already made impressive progress given he started from scratch. He is now on track towards his first exam and we look forward to Graham’s continued support.

To quote Daniel ; “He’s not good.. he’s amazing!”

Graham is a great drum teacher, my son had changed instrument several times and had taken basic drum lessons at school. However with Grahams lessons my son has become more dedicated and learnt so much more. He attends half an hour weekly sessions which are well prepared and organised. Graham is very considerate and generous with his time, never once have we felt rushed or limited to the time. He is very friendly and personable and always explains the lesson and practice requirements fully. He incorporates the whole family to support my son choosing the same music his brother is learning on the guitar so they can practice at home together. Graham makes the lessons fun and engaging and keeps my son positive when the frustration hits.
Graham is a very dedicated music
