I currently teach drum kit and percussion at Sacred Hearts Roman Catholic School in Camberwell, covering Contemporary Pop and Rock, Jazz, Classical, African Percussion, Samba and Steel Pans.

I teach private drum kit and guitar lessons for Forte Arts (, West London Music Tutors ( and I am a Young Music Mentor with Ark Schools (

I also work for Big Foot Arts Education as a Freelance Music Facilitator, teaching music for PPA cover in primary schools throughout London.

I have been playing drum kit and percussion for 17 years and graduated from Drumtech Drum and Percussion School in 2008, where I studied performance, drum technique, stylistic awareness, sight reading, music theory and music technology and guitar and bass as second instruments.

I have performance experience in a wide variety of styles, such as Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop, Funk, Reggae, Latin, Metal and Classical and have performed at venues such as Ronnie Scott's, The 100 Club, Bush Hall, Scala and Earl's Court.

I also worked at Tech Music School for two and a half years as an Academic Administrator so I have strong organisational and administration skills and a good working knowledge of music education. I still occasionally do session work for Tech Music School playing drums in performance workshops.

I have a DBS certificate and public liability insurance.
