Notes:

My formative years as a musician were spent growing up in Stroud where i played in various bands throughout my school and college days. My family were musical, my mother a teacher herself, and i began with classical piano age 6, achieving grade 8 on both piano and drum kit by the start of college. Although i had never planned to study music in further education, i saw no other real option once i had reached that stage in my life.

I studied music at Southampton University, where i was able to tailor the course towards my preference of jazz performance. While studying, i was frequently travelling to gigs around the country with a folk-influenced band of friends from home, Hot Feet. Juggling this with being principle drummer of the Uni big band for 2 years, i relished the musical diversity this brought me. It has enabled me to play at festivals from Montreux Jazz festival to Glastonbury, WOMAD and various others.

I have been teaching drums for 3 years now, and love the challenges it brings in exploration and explanation of rhythm, groove and technique. I have a home studio room where my band rehearse, in there i can set up 2 kits for fully interactive one to one tuition. I may tailor my teaching style to what the student wishes to learn and how advanced they are when they arrive, but generally my philosophy is to keep a healthy balance between technique, grooving/jamming, and listening to relevant music (very important). My hope is that you will develop into a solid, well rounded drummer who other musicians enjoy playing with.
