Connected Profiles:


I am a 27-year old drum tutor and session musician based in London. I have been drumming for around 16 years now and have gained a wide range of experience, including 6 years of teaching from running my own company back in the South-West of England, where I lived before moving to London 6 months ago.

I am an enthusiastic and reliable teacher, with a 100% pass rate on London College of Music graded examinations, with just over 100 pupils put through for exams. I used to teach both privately and through several schools across Somerset and built a great reputation amongst parents and teachers. I can also happily teach sight reading if required, as well as working to click/metronome, and a variety of styles and genres depending on the pupil. First and foremost, I consider the pupil’s enjoyment of the lesson to be a crucial factor.

I am an extremely dedicated and passionate working musician, and would love to to pass on my enthusiasm for drumming to any standard of drummer who is wanting to learn.
