Personal Description:

Retired police officer, now professional musician, composer, conductor and teacher, and musical instrument repairer.

Tutoring Experience:

Brass and percussion teaching both private and in schools, including Wider Opportunities whole class brass sessions.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is based on what the pupil actually needs and often what the pupil/parent wants. No two students are the same, so no two lessons are identical either, we all have strong points and weak points that need addressing individually!

If you wish to learn a particular style, or selection of songs, then thats what we will do. I can guide you through the things you wish to learn and introduce you to techniques and ideas that will further your performance and creativity within that genre.

On the other hand if your an intermediate drummer, or beginner who would just like a rounded education on playing drums, we can study many different genres, many different techniques and ideas and you can quickly develop your own voice on the drum kit!

For the more advanced players I focus a lot on techniques and exercises that will push the player to be the best they can. Making the drums and sticks work for them rather than forcing every stroke in the case of drumming, and breath control,lip flexibility, tone and style in the case of brass players.
