Notes:

Congratulations! If you’ve made it to this page then you are thinking about taking drum lessons. I commend you on a fine choice!

Drum lessons will improve your coordination, rhythm, musicality and confidence. Whether you have professional aspirations or you simply want to try something new and have some fun, I will tailor your lessons to suit you as an individual.

If you are interested in official drum qualifications such as Trinity Guildhall or RockSchool, I teach all Grades from 1 to 8.

Grips – holding your sticks
Foot technique – stomping on the pedals
