My Mission

All Genres and Styles Catered For

I teach a wide range of genres anywhere from funk to rock music and everything else in-between. I have an all around strong passion for all things music and I believe this is reflected in my teaching. No matter what playing level you are currently at, and no matter what music you enjoy, together we will study and work through the songs you love to not only help you improve technique but to allow you to play songs you've always dreamed of.

I take pride in always taking the time to get to know you as an individual, to learn what your musical goals are and what styles or artists you enjoy the most. From there I will also tailor my lesson plans to suit you. I understand we all want and enjoy different things about music so I will always make sure we are working towards your specific musical goals at all times.

My Lessons

Lessons suitable for all Ages and Abilities

I teach all students no matter what age starting from ages 6+. I find it's never really too early or too late to start learning an instrument and I enjoy working with students from all walks of life. For my younger students I tend to recommend shorter sessions to help maintain their attention span and keep them focused.

My lessons also cater for students of any skill set or ability level. So even if you have never played a drum kit before, or if you have been playing for years and you are just looking to take things to the next level, my lessons are suited to all students. Both Beginners and Advanced students are welcome!


£20 per half hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

My teaching experience allows me to offer varied lessons that are suited to any player. No matter what your skill set is, or what style of music you enjoy to listen to, together we can get you to that next level.

Introduction to Drums, Basic Rhythms

My Experience as a Teacher

Not only have I taught the drums for many years now but alongside this I have also been playing and performing in many different bands since a very young age. This real world experience has proven invaluable. It has allowed me to grow massively as an all round performer and I'm ready to pass these skills to my students.

Together we will always take every lesson as it comes to ensure that you are learning at a comfortable pace. Applying too much pressure to students can be counter productive so we will always be moving at a speed your happy with and I am here to give you all the support you will need to overcome the challenges of playing drums.

The most important thing in order to see progress is for me to ensure that you enjoy your lessons. I will always make sure that the sessions are as relaxed and enjoyable as possible all the while still being highly informative. I tend to find students learn and retain information best being in a familiar and comfortable environment.

More About My Lessons

I am a fully qualified drum teacher and I currently hold 2 grade 8 exam passes at distinction level. I have also graduated with a 2:1 Bmus in Performance & Production from LCCM. Here I learnt such a wide span of knowledge and skills on my drum kit and on music theory in general. I am now ready to pass these skills on to my students!

As well as my educational experience I also have a vast amount of gigging and real word performing experience. I have performed in many Original bands all of which have gone on to release it's own music. These skills have allowed me to not only be a better drummer but a better musician in general.

My current band is actively writing, recording and releasing material and we currently have an EP released already online. I hope to help my students not only improve at their instrument but to allow them to grow as a musician developing a better overall understanding of what it takes to be a performing musician.
