Teacher Info

It’s time to be awesome at the drums!

Whether you’re brand new to the drums, need to brush up on your technique, or want to gain more confidence as a performer, I will work with you to help you reach your drumming goals in a relaxed & fun environment. I specialise in teaching Rock / Pop / Punk & Metal so if you like things fast & loud then you’ve come to the right place!

The great thing about music is that you never stop learning – all of my lessons are bespoke to your needs to make sure that you are getting the best out of your time. Before we start, we will discuss your musical interests & goals, whether that’s mastering some classic grooves, learning your favourite song, or preparing for an audition or exam. ​

I offer all of my drum lessons from my private teaching studio in Portslade, just outside of central Brighton, or online tuition via Zoom so that you can learn from wherever you are based.

My son has made outstanding progress since beginning to have lessons with Sam. He has an excellent relationship with Sam and now never needs to be asked to practise, as he is so keen to master the different things they have covered in his lessons.

Sam has been a great drum teacher! He is very encouraging, positive and his sessions are extremely informative as he does not teach only technique but also how to read music. I really enjoyed learning how to play drums with Sam and I would definitely recommend!!
