Whilst my lessons will be catered towards the student's individual needs, I always ensure that every lesson is fun and engaging, no matter what level you are at. We will first have a discussion about any previous musical experience (not to worry if you are just starting!) so that I can gauge your current musical knowledge and cater your lessons accordingly. I will also ask you about your favourite bands and music styles so that I can better-cater your repertoire to this. Along with teaching playing techniques and learning pieces, my lessons will also incorporate Music Theory teachings so that you can better-understand the the sheet music that you will be learning.
Stephen Wilkinson has been performing on drums for over 16 years and has vast gigging and recording experience, specifically in the Metal scene, throughout the majority of this time. I am currently performing with an international touring band and have been involved with Tone Management, touring with Mayhem and performing at festivals including Damnation Festival (UK), Netherlands Death fest (NL) and Brutal Assault (CZ). Prior to this I was heavily involved with the Leeds Metal Scene and national underground scenes including bands such as Repulsive, One Machine, Pteroglyph, Scryre and many more, building a reputation as one of the most proficient Metal drummers in the UK scene.
My other qualifications include ATCL Diplomas on Classical Guitar and Recorders, Grade 8 Alto Saxophone and Grade 5 Music Theory. Along with this, I have vast experience of performing in multiple orchestras and ensembles including the National Youth Guitar Ensemble, Swindon Rock School and the Swindon Jazz Orchestra.

Stephen taught me drums and classic guitar (strange combo I know), for 2 years before he moved north of the border. He always showed great patience and was a brilliant teacher. I still love playing my instruments but miss my weekly lessons with him.
He already teaches regular pupils and is part of a successful band. I have seen his drumming and I personally believe he is one of the most talented musicians I have ever seen.
Stephen is a very dedicated and knowledgable musician, he makes his lessons fun and also has the practical experience of being the current drummer of a well known heavy metal band, so if you need a good instructor you would go a long way to find one better.
