Personal Description:

Hello and thanks for visiting my First Tutors page. I'm Tom, an independent drummer / percussionist based in Bournemouth offering drum tuition, session recording, live performance and sound design services.

I have acquired a wealth of industry experience performing and recording around the world in a diverse range of musical ensembles. Highlights include performing with Ben Waters, Bill Wyman (The Rolling Stones), Derek Nash (Jools Holland), Elliott Randall (Steely Dan), Dennis Greaves (Nine Below Zero), The Accolade, Bournemouth Concert Brass, The Dowlands, Lychgate and the Pipes and Drums of the Scots Guards.

Tutoring Experience:

For twenty years I have had the opportunity and privilege to teach drumming and music in a number of schools, colleges and universities. I currently teach at Lytchett Minster School, Poole High School, The Bishop of Winchester Academy, Absolute Music, and the Bournemouth Academy of Modern Music.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer drum tuition to students of all ages and abilities. Learners with special educational needs are welcomed.

In the lessons, a comprehensive range of drumming styles and techniques are practised. Topics studied include rhythm, the rudiments, grooves, fills, tempo, musical notation, repertoire development, improvisation, dynamics, ear training, ensemble preparation and sight-reading. Furthermore, the internationally recognised Trinity Rock and Pop, Trinity Guildhall and RockSchool drum grade syllabuses can be covered if you wish. 100% of my candidates have achieved success in their exams.

Above all we have fun. Lessons are individually tailored to help each learner achieve their desired musical goals and realise their drumming potential.

1-1 lessons can be arranged at your residence in Bournemouth / Poole or at a fully equipped drum studio in Wallisdown, Bournemouth. Alternatively I offer online lessons via FaceTime, Skype and Zoom.
