Learn to play the pop hits you love in a 1 to 1 session with me on the drums. I enjoy passing on the knowledge I have learnt over the years and draw upon my own experiences to assist students to fulfil their potential teaching them to achieve their individual aims.

Classes start at ages 5 years and above. You’re never too old to learn.

I'm committed to keep constantly learning and I continue to study with Mike Dolbear. I have also been fortunate to study with world class drummers including James Gadson, Dave Weckl, JR Robinson, Greg Bissonette, Thomas Lang, Billy Ward, Russ Miller, Zoro, Jim Chapin and Johnny Rabb.

I have a very friendly and relaxed teaching style, with the emphasis on learning things that will help the student develop, making sure they are enjoying themselves as much as possible. I am very patient with my students and understand that everyone learns at their own speed. I work from my own methods and teachings, initially installing the foundations of excellent technique and building from there.

I am DBS checked and have full public liability insurance.
