 Drums and Percussion

I have been playing drums for nearly 35 years and teaching the Drumsense Program for about 20 years.

Drumming has been my passion since my early teens and passing on ‘the knowledge’ is extremely rewarding. I was one of the first to start teaching this excellent programme and have found it most enjoyable and gives great results.

My drumming career at age 16 and I began playing professionally at 17. I now have many years of playing experience with bands live and in the studio at many venues all around the country.

Lessons are mainly given from a fully equipped studio with 3 kits, stereo and PA. Students can play along to tracks included in the programme or bring along music by their favourite bands. Home tutoring can also be provided. If you wish to study for exams, I also teach all of the Drumsense and Rockschool Grades up to Grade 8 and have a 100% pass rate at Distinction level. All of the major examination boards, Guildhall, Trinity College etc are also covered if required.

All styles including Rock, Jazz, Latin etc are covered in the syllabus. However, should you wish to study a particular aspect, such as double bass drum, Moeller technique etc this can be arranged.

In addition to teaching privately I have also taught in schools and I am fully CRB checked.

Please feel free to contact me for any further information or booking. Im always happy to talk drums!
