Experience and Qualifications

I have experience teaching drummers of almost all ages and skill levels, helping them to develop key musicianship skills, a great passion for their instrument and further their career prospects through performance experiences and Rockschool/Trinity examinations. Through my tutoring, my students have achieved a 100% exam pass rate, more than 80% of which were Merit or Distinction level. I have mainly worked in secondary and primary schools teaching drum students and leading school Percussion Groups. I currently work at 3 local Primary school in Leeds, where I teach drum kit lessons, percussion groups and a multi-instrument orchestra.

I personally began learning Drums at the age of 11 and throughout my drumming career, I have earned certificates in Rockschool Drums Grades 1, 3, 6 and 8 - all at Distinction level. Most recently, I earned my Rockschool Music Performance Diploma.

I have performed professionally at various functions in multiple bands all over the UK and supported bands such as Ocean Colour Scene and Maximo Park at venues such as Millennium Square and Leeds & Reading Festival.
