My lessons give you the essential skills required to be a drummer or percussionist in a band or ensemble.

A band is only as good as their drummer, so using my years of performing experience, I will pass on my knowledge to help you be the best musician you can be.

I use Rockschool grades within my teaching syllabus as I believe they are one of the ways to motivate students towards regular goals. They are a great introduction to reading music, timekeeping skills and musical genres. I teach from Grades 1- 8 and also up to Diploma level.

My aim is to support and encourage each student to achieve his or her potential and individual ambitions. This could be anything from taking a grade exam, learning a set of songs so that a student is able to be confident playing in a band, to studying to gain a place at University.
