Mr Matthew Scales


I've been playing the drums now for over 30 years and I have over 15 years experience teaching both privately and within a school environment.

My aim is to teach everything from holding the sticks correctly, how to set up and tune a drum kit (including maintenance), technique, posture, right through to soloing and playing within a band situation.
Instruments: Visiting Drum Tutor
Drum kit
Keyboard / Piano

Genre/Style(s): All styles of drumming covered; rock, jazz, latin, funk, double bass drum, rudiments, musical theory & soloing. Also advice and tuition on equipment, posture, setting up and how to join a band!
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


From a reliable, trustworthy and competent individual I offer my services as a peripatetic tutor to schools, as a local visiting drum tutor within the comfort of your own home.

My experience has given me an extensive insight into live performance in a variety of different venues and situations. This aspect of performance is often overlooked during tuition. I can offer a different and exciting perspective for students learning the drums/percussion.

I am able to teach just for fun or up to advanced drum reading skills and musical theory, working towards GCSE/A-Level music and the Guildhall/Rock School Grade exams if necessary. It is my aim to inspire and encourage talent of all ages.

Remember: Everyone wishes they could play the drums!
