About Me

About

After graduating with a Music Performance Diploma from the Academy of Music & Sound in 2014, I set up my own drum school in Cumbernauld. Since then I’ve been teaching drum lessons Monday to Thursday during the evening every week.

I’ve been learning drums and session drumming for over 17 years with various pop, rock and metal bands to singer/songwriter artists, ceilidh and wedding/functions bands.

From my first gig at 13 years old to touring the world opening for my favourite bands I’ve also appeared live on TV & YouTube, filming numerous music videos and playing festivals such as:

  • SXSW Austin Texas,
  • MIDI Fest Schenzen China,
  • MUSIC MATTERS Singapore,
  • BELLADRUM, CELTIC CONNECTIONS & XPO NORTH Scotland, THE GREAT ESCAPE Festival England,
  • INDIE WEEK Ireland.

I can teach everything you need to know from beginner to advanced, grade 1 to grade 8 and all ages and abilities are welcome. When you book a drum lesson with me, I’ll create a custom lesson plan using the RockSchool & Trinity Graded Exam Syllabus complimented with my own material.

Whether it’s aiming to play your favourite songs, help with school or college exams, mastering the rudiments, understanding music theory or simply just learning to play for fun, let me help you achieve your drumming goals!

I can also facilitate online drum lessons through Zoom or Skype calls if you prefer!

There’s limited availability so get in touch and I’ll do my best to accommodate you.
