My aim as a drum teacher is to pass on the knowledge and experience that I have gained during my 18 year (and counting) drumming career. I am always keen to find out what each student enjoys about music and what they would like to learn from me. Whether it be learning the basics, how to play with other musicians, drum grades, technique, time keeping or just learning how to play your favourite songs, I will tailor the lessons to meet your needs and aspirations.

I have 4 years experience working with adults with learning disabilities and I provide African drum workshops to day centres in Wiltshire. I also provide one-to-one drum lessons to children and adults with a range of disabilities.

Below is some further information about my drum performance career.

Simon has been touring the UK and Europe as a freelance session drummer for the past ten years, performing with various artists at some of Europe’s most prestigious festivals and venues including Brixton Academy, The NIA Birmingham, Glastonbury Festival, Shepherds Bush Empire and The Paradiso, Amsterdam.

He has toured in support of internationally acclaimed bands and artists, Lynyrd Skynyrd, John Fogerty and Wishbone Ash as well as sharing festival bills with the likes of Feeder, BB King and Jimmy Vaughan.

In 2012 and 2013 he was nominated in the Drummer of the Year category at the British Blues Awards following his work with Jon Amor Blues Group and Aynsley Lister. Simon has also recently signed with Ludwig as an official UK endorsee of this legendary drum manufacturer.
