I'm a gigging function and recording session drummer in London, but in my spare time, I offer fun beginners and kids drum lessons in the relaxed environment of your own home. I'm a proud father of 39 years old and have over 25-years of experience behind the kit.

Childrenís drum lessons can be both exciting and rewarding for the student, teacher and parents alike. The lessons can start from the age of 8 but I am happy to teach a younger child if the passion and willingness to learn is evident - I've found though, that a half hour to 45 minute lesson is enough for a 6-year old's patience!

Teaching youngsters how to play the drums builds a good musical foundation and limb independence. It has also been proven that children develop motor strength and control, speech and communication, social skills, emotional expression, and cognition through drumming as well.

The lessons are structured and follow a progression which helps keep children motivated and inspired.

I also offer beginnerís lessons to people of all ages - Want to learn to play the drums but don't know where to start?

The classes will not only give you the tools to play beats and fills on your drum set, but also provide you with an in-depth knowledge of drum tuning, drum notation and rudiments.

At present, I am a mobile teacher, which means I travel to your home and teach on your drum set, electronic drum set or practice pad. I will show you effective ways to practise and improve without a drum set as well.

Although I am able to provide intermediate and advance lessons, I feel that the latter can be provided by accredited courses or at no cost using the wealth of educational videos and lessons available on-line and on YouTube.

Please call or email me on [email protected] for further information. My rates exclude travel expenses.
