Hello & thanks for stopping by my Drum Tutor’s page!

My name is Mark Hale & I am a freelance Drummer based in Bedfordshire.
I have been working professionally for six years and have a wide range of playing experiences from Function bands (Top 40 covers at weddings & corporate gigs), Musicals/ Pantomime/ Theatre productions, Cruise Ships and I am currently running a successful weekly Jazz gig in Bedford.

I have studied with some of the country’s best teachers including Pete Riley (Guthrie Govan) whilst I was at Sixth Form college before completing the Degree Course at The Academy Of Contemporary Music, graduating with a BA (Hons) Degree in Music Performance.
Recent Teachers have included: Dave Hassell, Steve Brown & Enzo Zirilli.

My own teaching experience started at the age of 16 & I am currently teach privately in Bedford, teaching for the Drum Den in Harpenden & Alex’s Music Lessons also situated in Harpenden.

I have a passion for music and that’s the basis that all my Teaching is structured around: Musicality, learning to play songs, and focusing on the Technical aspects that will crop up through different pieces of music.

For the more advanced students I will delve deeper into the areas of Drumming that are important to a working professional: Being able to read Charts, Stylistic Awareness, and a continuation into developing Technique & strengthening your sense of time & rhythm.

I have experience of teaching the Graded systems either the Trinity Course or Rock school if the student wishes to complete the grades.

If you’re interested in having lessons at my house or in the comfort of your own home please do not hesitate to get in touch! I am offering a free 30 minute trial to anybody who would like to get a taster of my Teaching & approach to playing the Drums!

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions & I look forward to hearing from you soon,
