He also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in contemporary music and is currently studying a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.

Billy teaches all ages and abilities from beginner to intermediate. If you are new to the drums then Billy will take you through the basics and you will be playing the drums within a few weeks. More importantly, Billy will ensure that you enjoy your lessons and come away feeling like you have learned something every session.

Outline of Billy's syllabus:
