My Experience as a Teacher

I’m Craig have over 35 years’ experience of performing on both acoustic and electronic drums (live and in studios) in the entertainments industry. I learnt my profession from meeting some of the best session drummers in the world, observing them perform at drum clinics and master classes. I also had the pleasure of attending a ‘Rhythm Drum Camp’ At Bath Spa University College.

For many years of living and breathing music has been my life. Attending numerous Leeds College Of Music developments courses, along with hundreds of gigs and live events, for clients such as Jamie Oliver, and The Marriott Group I have also headlined at Matthews Street Festival in Liverpool.

I will use my playing and performing experience to make sure you get the most out of your playing and that we learn in a direction that you want to learn in.

More About My Lessons

I offer a student-focused teaching approach. Introducing a drum programme that relates to your individual learning curve, this helps you develop at your own pace in a relaxed studio environment or from the comfort of your own home.

As the fundamental techniques for drumming are the same across the genres, I can offer lessons in any style of music you like, making learning to play interesting and enjoyable.

I will guarantee you rapid results by developing your overall drumming skills. My past and present students have a long list of achievements, which range from drumming qualifications, further education at music colleges and playing in a live band. Get in touch to book your first lesson now!
