Testimonials and References

I have been having lessons with Piers on and off since about 2005 ish. Teaching in a relaxed environment with a encouraging style, Piers helped me correct many bad habits and poor technique which I didn't even realise I had. Learning everything from basic rudiments and technique to complex patterns and independence. I have since become a well rounded drummer in a band of my own. One thing I thoroughly enjoy and why I return for a lesson often, is that there is always something to learn and room for development. I cannot recommend Piers highly enough - Dan Facey.

My son has been having drum tuition from Piers for about a year now. We don't live locally to him, so all the lessons have been conducted online over video call, and Piers is an excellent tutor. He obviously has a lot of knowledge and experience, and is fluent in many different styles of drumming, but he is also really fun to spend time with and really puts my son at ease. My son was an absolute beginner when he started lessons, and he has progressed really well. He thoroughly enjoys his lessons (not something I felt about music lessons when I was a lad!), and looks forward to his lesson each week. It feels like a genuine privilege to have someone of Piers' calibre providing tuition for us, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Mark Woolnough
