Hello my name is Mark and I offer 1 to 1 drum lessons for all ages and abilities.
I teach drums from my purpose built state of the art studio in Helmshore, Lancashire.
I believe every student has a different musical background, strengths and weaknesses, and most importantly – different musical goals and aspirations. It is my job to shape the concepts and materials covered in private drum lessons to achieve these milestones. First I assess the skill level of the student and then work out a schedule based on the initial consultation. As a result, Each student will receive a bespoke lesson structure as I find this to be the best way of achieving great results for the individual.
I teach at a fixed location (studio)
Full professional drum kit, All resources available, state of the art studio.
Experience and Qualifications
I have played drums for most of my life and for the last 15 years have worked extensively as a professional musician. Having studied with first class tutors such as the late great Ed Thigpen, Dave Hassell, Brian Frasier-Moore, Steve White and Donavan Hepburn, I’ve equipped myself with the knowledge and experience necessary to be an outstanding musical and reading musician. I am at home with both acoustic and electronic drums/triggers. I started Rossendale Drum Lessons to give me the opportunity to pass on my experience to the next generation.
My professional achievements to date include performing and recording with the likes of Kyla Brox , Gloria Gaynor, The Osmonds, Susan Boyle, Lucien Barbarin, Phil Manzanera, Jive Aces and Future Funk Squad, to name a few.
Testimonials and References
Nick Serpell - If you want to learn to play the drums there is no better teacher than Mark. As a professional drummer himself he is well qualified to teach you, whether you are an experienced drummer but need to cure some bad habits, have been playing for a bit and want to develop, or are a complete newcomer. He is experienced in a number of musical genres so whatever your particular interest, Mark can help you become a better drummer
I found Mark to be knowledgeable, patient and really keen that his students get the most out of their music, whether playing just as a hobby, or looking to do some more serious work. He is also a really nice, approachable and genuine man.
Sally Goulding - Our 10 year son has been going to Mark for drum lessons for the last couple of months. From the beginning Mark has always been extremely helpful tailoring his first lesson as a "drum experience" because it was a birthday gift. Our son hates extra curricular classes but one lesson with Mark and he was hooked. Marks easygoing nature and wealth of knowledge and experience gave our son a new passion for drums which he has quickly become absorbed into with the help of Marks friendly, welcoming, calm and encouraging approach as a teacher. Our son loves going to his lessons and counts down the days until his next one. Mark was also an incredible source of knowledge and expertise when we came to buy a drum kit and he gave us an abundance of essential advice to make sure we got the right items. We have learnt a lot from him too! I have and will continue to recommend Mark to anyone thinking of starting the drums whatever their age.
