Grades 5 - 8 Rock school Drums

I have a 100% Pass record for students that undertook graded examinations.
Instruments: Drum kit
Genre/Style(s): I have 10+ years experience of teaching, from the beginner hobbyist to the advanced music student for both children and adults.

All my lessons are tailored to individual needs and I aim to provide a fun programme of lessons to increase any player’s confidence and ability.

I have a multi-sensory approach to teaching (Visual, Auditory, Read/write, Kinaesthetic) as I am a Dyslexic musician myself.
I have found this to be successful for students without learning difficulties also.

I am also fully CRB checked.

I am available to cover such topics as:
• All drum grades 1-8 (I have a 100% pass record for every student that entered into an examination)
• Technique/Rudiments
• Audition/Exam preparation
• Playing for fun and learning songs
• Creativity and musicianship
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I am currently a peripatetic drum teacher with MAPAS (Salford Music service), along side having my own teaching practice based from home where I am able to teach face-to-face or online skype lessons.
