Hello and thanks for visiting my Music Teachers page. Please find all teaching info below. If you're interested in my playing experience click on 'Biography' above.

Drum tuition for people of all ages and abilities. Learners with special educational needs are welcomed and all aspects and styles of drumming are covered.

Lessons are individually tailored for the student to help them achieve their musical goals. Students can expect to approach subject matter involving song repertoire, rudiments, improvisation, grooves, rhythms, sight-reading notation, playing in time, technique and ensemble preparation. I have a library of acclaimed drum books to use in lessons and I often print out useful worksheets that focus on essential drum patterns and concepts for students. Furthermore, I implement modern music technology into lessons with apps, software and media where appropriate.

I teach all of the grade exam syllabuses including Trinity Guildhall, Rock and Pop, Drumsense and RockSchool; grades 1-8 and beyond. I have achieved a 100% pass+ success rate with all the candidates I have entered into exams.

Lessons are available at Absolute Music's fully equipped drum studio in Bournemouth:
or they can be arranged at your own home in Bournemouth and Poole areas.

I am a member of the Musicians Union, I have public liability insurance and an up to date DBS / Enhanced CRB check certificate.
