Mr Matthew Scales


I've been playing the drums now for over 25 years and I have over 10 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.

I have been using Cubase for many years now, both for personal use at home and within the school environment, I have extensive knowledge of the software. My experience with music production and song composition has seen many of my students successfully pass their GCSE Music exams. I now offer the facilities of my home studio to anyone interested in music production and composition, also to any singers or songwriters who wish to have their material recorded to a professional industry standard onto any digital format including CD. Ideal to send to music companies or just for someone special!

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, and my home studio for Cubase tuition, music recording and production.

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 drums!!
