Methodology

I'm a qualified language teacher, and I bring that perspective to my drum lessons - I know how to put myself in the students' shoes and make lessons fun and engaging, while gradually building up the student's confidence and core skills. I like to base my lessons as much as possible on the student's own interests.

Experience

I've been playing drums for over 20 years, and have performed all over the world - London, Glasgow, Shanghai. I was drummer/backing vocalist for Emma Pollock on her tour of China. I'm competent in all styles, but especially rock and pop. I'm a qualified, experienced teacher.

I have worked with Danny in China and the U.K and every time has been a pleasant experience. He has played drums on my recent projects and is a constant professional. He has a wealth of drumming knowledge and experience and is able to play a wide range of styles.

I think Danny would be a great drum tutor and I know his students will benefit from him greatly.

Danny has a decade of teaching experience, and over two decades of performing experience - and was trained at the UKs premier drum academy. So he really knows his stuff, and can play multiple styles - but he’s also a super nice guy, and a creative and patient teacher. Recommend!
