About Me


Become the drummer you want to be.

My drum tuition is bespoke to your needs & goals. I am here to help you every step of the way as you gain more confidence as a performer, develop your musical vocabulary, explore new concepts & techniques, build a strong foundation of the basics, prepare for an audition or exam, or learn how to play your favourite songs.

Lessons are delivered in a fun & relaxed environment on professional equipment using a wide variety of resources accessible through an online student portal.

I offer all of my drum lessons from my private teaching studio in 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!!
