My lessons are individually catered to each student based on their own aims and requirements. Whether you want to work on grades, improve your technique, learn to play in a band or simply have fun I’m here to help. Drums are a fantastic instrument which regardless of your reasons for learning will always be a fun and exciting experience.

Using a careful mix of theory and practical components I aim to deliver lessons that are time efficient and informative whilst remaining relaxed and unpressured. I have studied tuition and have learnt various ways of approaching teaching to help meet the individual needs of each student from total beginners to professional musicians and everything in between. All ages are also welcome.

Testimonials and References

"Tommy is a superb teacher and his lessons are fun, engaging and practical. My son, Shishir is so excited every week for his lesson and we feel very fortunate to have found Tommy! He always makes the effort to tailor the lesson to my son’s skills while also challenging and motivating him to improve. Thanks for all the effort! I would highly recommend Tommy’s drum teaching." - Janaki V, 10th August 2021

"Fantastic tutor! Would recommend to everyone no matter what level of experience you are. Tommy is a reliable, approachable and patient drum tutor who has really motivated me to improve in a short amount of time! I started off a complete beginner not able to do a paradiddle and without a drum kit of my own and now get to play grade 2 and 3 level songs and also ones I asked to learn by the Black Keys and Guns N’ Roses. He has a personalised approach so whether you want to just enjoy drumming a particular song or are aiming towards an exam he’s flexible and will work with your objectives for drumming. He’s also really good at teaching the music theory side which I’d previously never really got and had switched off for when learning other instruments but Tommy manages to make it interesting!" - Claire C, 12th March 2021

"Tommy has been teaching my 15 year old son drum lessons by video during the lockdown and he has been a fantastic, responsive and helpful teacher. More than a teacher, he is becoming a real friend. We can't recommend him highly enough." - Ian C, 30th April 2020

"Tommy has been a fantastic tutor for my son. He's knowledgeable, enthusiastic and has been brilliant at inspiring confidence as he's taught. My son is autistic and Tommy has been great at adapting to this, having a structure to his tuition that allows him to work with where my son is at and what he's enjoyed. My son has thrived in lessons and enjoys playing. We couldn't ask for any more." - Caroline Haley, 17th January 2020
