I'm Alex, a graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music. I specialise in playing solo percussion (marimba, vibraphone and un-pitched) but I am also experienced in orchestral percussion, drum kit and Latin percussion.

I have been teaching music for several years, both privately, through local music services and as a freelance workshop facilitator. I believe that learning percussion should be fun and enjoyable for all ages. Percussion is the perfect instrument to study if you want to learn about all styles of music, not only from our culture, but from cultures from around the world. This can be especially useful for school children, as lessons can be structured to match the cultures that they are learning about in curriculum lessons.
Being a percussionist, rather than solely a drum kit player, I can offer students tuition across all styles of music and all types of percussion instruments; from rock drum kit to classical marimba, orchestral snare drum to African djembes!
