If your looking for a teacher who will make you do endless exercises from books I'm probably not for you. I want my students to be inspired about playing drums and music. As a drummer the most important things are groove, timing and understanding whatever the style your playing and that's what I focus on.

My teaching method is simple. Together we work out the drummer you want to be, what it's going to take to make that happen and then set achievable goals to make it a reality! If you practice I will give you the tools each week to see huge results! There is no need to be able to read music, all you need is the passion to play!

Drum lessons are priced at £25 per hour. Every student has an initial consultation session for an hour to make sure I'm the right teacher for you, look at your playing and understand what it is you want to achieve. If you sign up as one of my students lessons are paid monthly as a Direct Debit. Lessons are available weeknight evenings from 4pm onwards and all day on Saturday and take place in the Chichester area. Ages 8 to 80.
