I’ve been playing drums for over 13 years now and teaching for 6.
I offer drum tuition to a wide age range of students and even teach keyboards to a few.
I have so far a 100% success rate with passing Rockschool Examinations and also have experience teaching Trinity/Guildhall.
In our lessons we can cover a wide range of style from Pop-Jazz, Afro-Cuban to Rock, and everything in between. I also teach tailored lessons for those of you who are not interested in the grades, I tend to cover rudiments, techinque, odd time, styles, sight-reading and what ever you’re interested in learning.

Look forward to meeting you.
