I am a Drum Kit player and percussionist with over 20 years of real world experience as a performer and 15 years experience as a teacher.

I have experience teaching a very wide age range, with a particular speciality in engaging younger players. I cover an extensive range of techniques, musical styles and concepts in my lessons, always with direct connection to their importance and relativity to real world musical situations.

I include the use of relavent technology to enhance lessons, recording performances for analysis and supporting progress.

I have extensive knowledge of all musical examination boards and the various graded syllabi - from the contemporary Rockschool and Trinity 'Rock & Pop' grades, through to the 'Classic' Trinity College grades, across all levels.

I employ my knowledge of music theory and the ABRSM music theory grades to support learning at all stages, promoting a holistic approach to music and instrumental learning.

I am CRB/DBS checked and take safeguarding issues very seriously. Through my work in schools with the Herts County Music Service, and in numerous other private schools, I am fully aware of my role and my responsibilities regarding safeguarding.
