Enjoy approaching a diverse range of subject matter; everything from learning your favourite songs, the rudiments and improvising rhythms to sight reading notation, playing in time, ensemble preparation and good technique / co-ordination.
Every lesson I give out useful worksheets that focus on essential drumming patterns and concepts, furthermore, I have a vast library of acclaimed drum books to study with students.
If you want to take graded exams I teach all of the major syllabuses including Trinity Guildhall, RockSchool, Drumsense and Trinity Rock & Pop.
