Quality Tuition

Chris learning his Grade 8 pieces

Tuition is conducted in a friendly manner, structured around the individual's needs with the initial aim of creating a solid foundation. All aspects of drumming are covered, including different genres (e.g., rock, jazz, blues, reggae, latin, classical), rudiments, technique, musicianship, playing to music, reading music, theory, and much more!


Ravi learning his Grade 4 pieces

I teach from home, in my fully equipped music room using my own hybrid electric/acoustic drum kit. They can last 30 or 60 minutes although longer lessons can be arranged. Schools are encouraged to make bookings for lessons, demonstrations and workshops.

Drum Exams

Students have the option of taking Trinity College drum kit and snare drum exams grades 1-8. These qualifications are recognised in accordance with the UCAS tariff system.
