Personal Description:

Growing up in rural Devon I found an early passion for music and soon became obsessed with it; this soon became a deep fascination in drums. throughout school I was always playing and formed many good friends through musical clubs/bands by the end I had achieved my Trinity Guildhall Grade 8. I then moved to Exeter College where I continued to pursue music, simultaneously achieving my Trinity Guildhall ATCL level Diploma and ABRSM Grade 5 general music theory. I then went on to apply to one of the UK's Leading music conservatoires - Leeds College of Music and was offered an unconditional offer. ​Since graduating I Have been working professionally within the music industry tutoring, performing in bands and working as a session musician.

​Drumming has always and will always be a huge part of my life, I am committed to trying to share my passion for music and drumming with as many people as possible. I urge anyone who has never picked up an instrument to give it a go, it is a fantastic outlet for creativity, focus and leads to lots of social interactions with likeminded people. If you are looking for a new hobby or way to meet new people, drumming is a great place to start.

Tutoring Experience:

I am currently a fully self employed drum tutor teaching 20+ students privately over zoom and in person. Ages and abilities ranging from 5 to 65 - Absolute begginer to Grade 8.

I also teach in a dedicated music school and exam centre based in Rotherham.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are individually catered to each student based on their own aims and requirements. Whether you want to work on grades, improve your technique, learn to play in a band or simply have fun I’m here to help. Drums are a fantastic instrument which regardless of your reasons for learning will always be a fun and exciting experience.

Using a careful mix of theory and practical components I aim to deliver lessons that are time efficient and informative whilst remaining relaxed and unpressured. I have studied tuition and have learnt various ways of approaching teaching to help meet the individual needs of each student from total beginners to professional musicians and everything in between. All ages are also welcome.
