About

About

I’m Alfie, a drummer based in Leeds UK. Aside from creative work, I teach drums from my home via Zoom. With over 10 years of experience learning and gigging, I’ve gained the necessary knowledge to get you progressing on the drums.

My Zoom learning setup is enhanced with multiple cameras and microphones alongside industry-standard streaming technology that replicates the experience of being in the same room together.

Open to all ages, my teaching revolves around a bespoke progression plan for every student. For beginners, we may start by introducing the basics of rhythm with a focus on getting you grooving on the kit. If you’ve had lessons before or already completed grades, we can begin to tailor your learning by using resources from the worlds finest drummers. For advanced drummers, I urge you to check out my videos on Hybrid Drumming. If it interests you, we can incorporate this technology within your drum lessons to bring your live performances to the next level.

Within your initial free 20 consultation session, together we can form this plan based on how you learn, your goals and what you enjoy most!
