Learn The Music You Love

My lessons are always built around my students and I would much prefer it if we learned in a direction that you would like to learn in.

I like to make sure we learn music from the bands and artists that you love as well as making sure you gain a solid understanding of music and theory to back up your playing ability.


£24 per hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

My Experience as a Teacher

After graduating with a Music Performance Diploma from the Academy of Music & Sound in 2014, I set up my own drum school in Cumbernauld called Gary G Drums. Since then I’ve been teaching drum lessons Monday to Thursday during the evening every week.

I’ve been learning drums and session drumming for over 17 years with various pop, rock and metal bands to singer/songwriter artists, ceilidh and wedding/functions bands.

From my first gig at 13 years old to touring the world opening for my favourite bands I’ve also appeared live on TV & YouTube, filming numerous music videos and playing festivals such as SXSW Austin Texas, MIDI Fest Schenzen China, MUSIC MATTERS Singapore, BELLADRUM, CELTIC CONNECTIONS & XPO NORTH Scotland, THE GREAT ESCAPE Festival England & many more.

Lessons Focus

All Genres

I can teach a wide range of genres including Pop, Rock, Funk, Metal, Reggae, Blues, R&B, Hip Hop & Country

More About My Lessons

I can teach everything you need to know from beginner to advanced, grade 1 to grade 8 and all ages and abilities are welcome. When you book a drum lesson with me, I’ll create a custom lesson plan using the RockSchool & Trinity Graded Exam Syllabus complimented with my own material.

Whether it’s aiming to play your favourite songs, help with school or college exams, mastering the rudiments, understanding music theory or simply just learning to play for fun, let me help you achieve your drumming goals!

I can also facilitate online drum lessons through Zoom or Skype calls if you prefer! I have limited slots but will always try to fit you in.
