My Mission

All Genres and Styles Catered For

The lessons I provide are suited to teach a wide range of students no matter what musical background you may have. I am competent and fluent in playing all styles and genres such as Blues, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Funk etc. No matter who your favorite artists are, or what your favorite style is together we can take our sessions in whichever direction you want to go.

My main teaching method is to study and teach you the songs that you love by the artists that you enjoy the most. I take pride in getting to know you on a personal level so that I can tailor our lessons to ensure you're always working through material you enjoy. I find this helps keep students driven and motivated which is very important when learning any instrument.

My Lessons

Lessons Suitable for Students Aged 10+

I have been playing and performing the drums for many years now and in that time I have worked with students of all age groups. I feel learning an instrument is something everyone can do at really any age and I enjoy helping students along on their path to becoming the drummer they have always wanted to be.

Most adult learners tend to take one 60 minute lesson with me each week. This tends to allow for the most consistent development and progress when learning the instrument. For my younger students I tend to recommend 30 minute lessons as this helps keep their attention span and their focus while learning new material.

Prices:


£15 per 1/2 hour
£25 per hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

I tailor my lesson plans to suit the needs of any individual student. No matter whether you have never played drums before, or if you have been playing for years and just want to improve, my lessons cater for both Beginners and Advanced Drum players.

My Experience as a Teacher

I'm a fun, friendly and very professional drum teacher who takes great pride in offering the highest quality drum lessons that I can. I have a large performing and teaching background and I am now in a position to be able to pass these skills on to you! I believe my lessons are kept relaxed but informative, ensuring a comfortable learning environment.

Alongside my teaching I have quite a large amount of real world drum performing experience. I have been fortunate enough to support some relatively big names such as Jessie J and The Hoosiers. Having this real world experience allowed me to not only grow as a drummer myself, but also as an all round musician.

I have trained at BIMM and currently hold a Distinction level qualification from there, from my College and from Grade 5 Rockschool theory. I am currently working as a freelance musician/session performer and with all of this knowledge combined, I believe I am able to provide you with well rounded lessons, to help you become the best drummer you can be.

More About My Lessons

I am a fully qualified and professional Drum teacher who's passion it is to help you grow and develop as a drummer. In my lessons I not only offer practical exercises but also theory exercises too. Learning music theory has heaps of benefits and allows you to not only be a better player, but a better all round musician which will help you with real world music situations.

I will always do my best to ensure I keep the lessons as relaxed and as fun as I possibly can. I find students tend to make better progress and retain more information when learning in a comfortable environment. Some teachers tend to apply too much pressure to their students and I find this to be pretty counter productive.

Since graduating I have gone on to perform on P&O Ferries, P&O Australia and P&O UK which was great experience for me. I had to perform a huge repertoire of material in this time, which kept me on my toes as a performer. I am now happy to share all these things I learnt doing this with you to help you play whatever style or genre you want.

Teacher Tips
Local Music Stores

Here is a list of local music stores for all your musical needs.

Music Shops in Woking

Woking doesn't have a huge selection of local music stores. As we are not too far away from London, I'd recommend a short drive as here you will find a wide range of music shops on offer. It is probably one of the best locations in the UK to buy instruments. You will find everything you need of the highest quality all over the city. Here are just a few you could try.

Drums and Percussion Centre, is located Unit F12-13 The Mayford Centre, Mayford Green, Woking, Surrey, GU22 0PP and is one of the best independent drum based shops in this area.

Drum Shack, is located on 58 Lavender Hill, London SW11 5RQ. This is also a great shop that will cater to all of your drumming needs. They also specialise on vintage and second-hand drum kits.

PMT London, located 35-39 Old Street, Clerkenwell, EC1V 9HX is a great store that you can try for all things music. Here you will be able to find everything you will need for any instrumental, especially drums.
