I have been playing the drums since I was 12 (1989), and teaching since 2000. 

Players of all levels and ages are welcome for lessons.

I vary lessons between technique, rudiments, reading, song-learning, sight reading, composition and grade work.
I teach rudiments and reading as standard to form a solid basis for your playing.

​I am happy to help you work towards any drumming goals you may have, be they playing in a band or working towards grades (up to and including Grade 8), improving your technique or just playing for fun!
Most genres can be catered for.

Lessons take place in my home teaching studio, with both electronic and acoustic drums available to learn and practice on...

I am happy to discuss your requirements - feel free to call or email.

As well as regular drum lessons, I can offer tuition in set up and maintenance of drum kits.
Please ask for further details.
