I will always plan my lesson around the students ability and learning style. This is a very important fundamental to me. I offer tuition for beginners and intermediate players. I am able to teach grades and songbooks and well as standard lessons which include vital content for drummers. I offer 30 minute and 1 hour slots. I will always base my lessons around my students, depending on how much they wish to cover during their lesson. I always ensure to transcribe what has been taught in my lessons, as well as covering drum theory and how to read and write on a musical stave. Making the students learning experience easier and more beneficial.
I have been self taught for over 10 years, specialising in Rock/Pop drumming, as well as having strong knowledge in many other genres. I have been teaching for just under a year, having just graduated from the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford. I currently work at Realistic Rock in Epsom, teaching a variety of different ages and abilities. I offer private and group lessons. I have lots of live performance and recording experience which has helped shape me to become the drummer I am today. I have also received drum tuition from the likes of Eddy Thrower (Lower Than Atlantis, Busted) and Jack Wrench (Arcane Roots).
There will be an extra £4 charge for those requiring travel for tuition. Many thanks

Currently, I teach a range of students aged 4-20. Tuition options include private lessons, Trinity Rock & Pop grades, live performance and group workshops, and band coaching for students aged 4-17. I teach my students through playing games, reading sheet music, presenting examples with clear explanation, helping develop their ear training and visual learning skills. We also run live music events around Epsom, which involve our students. I also have an enhanced level DBS clearance.
