My Mission

High Quality Drum Lessons

I have been playing and teaching the drums for around 13+ years now. In this time I have been fortunate enough to have worked with so many different students from all different types of musical backgrounds. I have been able to work with students of all ages ranging from primary school students all the way through to retirees who are looking to learn a new skill.

I take pride in offering the highest quality drum lessons that I can. I believe I am a friendly and approachable teacher who provides hand on support and guidance when it comes to learning how to play the drums. I will always make sure that are lessons remain as relaxed as possible, all the while still being informative and jam packed full of information and knowledge.

My Lessons

Lessons Suitable for all Students

I believe all people should experience the benefits of playing the drums and I truly believe that it's something that anybody can do with the right training and guidance. The lessons I provide are suitable for students of all ages and I am more than happy to teach just about any style or genre that you can think of. I will always tailor my lessons plans to suit you and your specific individual goals.

Through my years of teaching the drums I accept that adult learners will learn differently to younger students. I will always adapt and adjust my teaching style to make sure that the student remains as engaged in the sessions as possible. Although I try to make all of my lessons fun for everybody, I especially do this when working with younger students. I find this tends to help keep them focused and motivated when it comes to practising in between lessons.

My Experience as a Teacher

I am a passionate drummer and percussionist with over 13 years experience playing live, recording and tutoring. I am also the founder of a drumming company which provides online classes and workshops. At the age of 18, I finished my studies with a Distinction grade from the Academy of Contemporary Music and left with a Diploma in Music Performance, Songwriting, Theory and Music Culture. I also hold qualifications in Production and Music Business.

I feel that my approach to teaching has always been professional, fun and easy-going. I find that students tend to learn and retain information best this way when in a comfortable and relaxed environment. My main goal with my students is to really help them gain a full and solid foundation of the fundamentals of drumming. This will not only help them to improve as practical drummer but will help them expand their knowledge as an all round musician too.

For my more advanced students we would really try and get to grips with where you are at and come up with a solid plan of what level you would like to get to. From here I will base all your future lessons plans on the goals that we have set and I will make sure that all content provided is taking us one step closer to where you want to be. I find this ensures you are always getting the most from each lesson that we have together and moving at a comfortable pace that suits you.

More About My Lessons

I was fortunate enough to be educated at The Academy of Contemporary Music as this provided me with an in-depth and comprehensive experience playing with a wide plethora of musicians through a huge range of genres and styles. I am now in a position where I feel confident and able to both perform and teach in all of these styles such as Contemporary and Classic Rock, Pop, Soul, Funk, RNB, Blues and World Music.

As a teacher I will always do my best to make sure that every student gets a personal and unique experience when taking lessons with me. I will always adapt and tailor the lessons to ensure that you are being rewarded by learning content and material that you specifically enjoy. I often call upon my years of real world performing experience to provide you with thorough and well rounded lessons covering all aspects of playing the drums.

After I had left the Academy, I continued playing up and down the UK with multiple projects and artists. Eventually I started teaching the drums alongside performing it. I also formed and started working with my original band ‘DALI’ who were featured as one of KERRANG! Radio’s Fresh Blood Top Picks in 2020. Today, I continue to develop my craft and professional skills by playing live all over the country, recording in professional studios and teaching my amazing students.
