I am a young and enthusiastic drum teacher who has been teaching and leading workshops for about 4 years. I have had an excellent musical education, recently graduating from Birmingham Conservatoire. I think that technique is very important in drumming but so is having fun and loving music. I currently teach for Herts and Staffs Music services as well as privately and I have experience in working with children with moderate learning difficulties. I am happy to teach grades.

I charge the Musicians Union rate of £28 per hour for one-to-one lessons.

Travel expenses are negotiable depending on where you live and if I have other students within the same area.
