My Mission

Fun and Informative Lessons

I am primarily a session drummer who frequently performs live as well as teaches the drums to other students. Having such wide and varied drumming experience has allowed to provide drum lessons that can cater for all students, no matter what stage of your musical journey you are on.

I am a graduate student with tons of experience both performing and teaching the drums. I like to try and use this experience to ensure that the lessons are kept relaxed and fun but also insightful and informative at the same time.

My Lessons

Lessons to Cater for Students of all Ages

Over my years of teaching the drums I have worked with students from all different walks of life and all different age groups. I understand that children and adult learners each learn in a different way and as such I will always adapt and tailor my lessons to suit that specific person.

I have worked both in schools teaching full classes of students and in a private one to one setting. In my time working at Ridgeway School I was able to work with so many students of all ages and abilities, which really helped me grow as a teacher myself and allowed me to expand my own horizons when working with such a wide range of students.


£15 per 1/2 hour

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

My Experience as a Teacher

I have been teaching and playing drums for a while now and have taught and performed in such a wide range of settings. I have been fortunate enough to perform alongside bands such as M.I.A, The XX, Soulwax, Jamie T, Miles Kane, Glasvegas, The Big Pink and many more.

I have graduated with a BA Hons in Music Management and this experience has allowed me to develop a huge repertoire in a wide ranges of styles and genres. My own personal influences cover so many different artists that this has allowed me to grow as an all around musician, and now I'm ready to help you do the same.

I take pride in my lessons and like to try and make sure that they are fun and interesting for you, but I also love what I do. With a real passion for drums and all things music together we can structure a plan and help you become the drummer you've always wanted to be.

More About My Lessons

I like to try and use my experience both as a performer and as a teacher to help you get the most from your lessons. I like to offer a balanced service that covers the practical elements but also the musical theory behind Music and drums too.

No matter what style or genre you like, my lessons will be focused specifically on your musical tastes and your goals as a drummer. Together we will focus on and study through songs that you like by artists that you enjoy. This helps keep motivation and drive when practising!

Above all else, I like to make sure that you enjoy our lessons together and that they remain fun and productive as we go forward. I am friendly and approachable and always happy to talk all things music and help in any way I can, even if you're just looking for a second opinion on a new drum kit.
