My Lessons

Drum Lessons That Cannot Be Beaten

I have taught students of all ages and abilities, using the industry-leading Guildhall School of Arts and Drama and Rockschool drum books. I also encourage my students to develop their own musical knowledge by learning by ear.

I can work through the basics with beginners and challenge experienced students. My considerable live and studio experience mean that I can take students through a song from start to finish.


£17 per 1/2 hour
£25 per hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

My Experience as a Teacher

With years of teaching and playing experience behind me, I can give budding drummers all of the advice and know-how to make them succeed. Whether they are looking to gain grades or want to jam with their friends, I can get them started on their musical journey.

I have honed my teaching experience over a number of years as a professional musician, gaining a BA (Hons) from the Academy of Contemporary Music in teaching. I have added to this with further qualifications in music technology, giving my students access to not only first-class drums lessons but the skills to record their music.

I can work with different styles, giving beginner students in Guildford the opportunity to play the songs that they want to. I can also give intermediate and advanced student the tools they need to take their drumming to the next level.

More About My Lessons

I have years of live experience, along with hours of studio time and production work. If you want to take your drumming further, you have come to the right place. My time at the Academy of Contemporary Music and my years of teaching, performing and recording mean that I can raise the bar for intermediate students and have advanced pupils shooting for the stars.

I can read and notate music and can expand the wider musical knowledge of all of my students. My experience in live music means that I can help my students source the correct equipment, set it up correctly and even how to make it sound great onstage!

My musical experience does not just stop at the drums either - I can play the keyboard, guitar, bass guitar and more to give students an unparalleled look at the world of music.

I can help you to

I have played at some of the best live venues that London and the south-east of England have to offer. I have drummed in bands such as Arivmia and Dirty Rose, so if you want to make a splash on stage then I can offer a helping hand. I have also worked at some major venues in a variety of technical roles, along with recording experience at major studio spaces. I want to pass on my knowledge and know-how to give my drum lessons an edge.
