private drum lessons

I have over 30 years experience as a professional drummer and teacher. I teach all levels so if you are just starting out or fancy brushing up on some skills then get in touch.

Drum Lessons

Based in my log cabin at home in South Lincolnshire is my teaching/recording studio. The studio is soundproofed and fully equipped for teaching and the recording of live acoustic drums.

Teaching takes place in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and accommodates all styles and levels. Lessons generally take place in 30 or 60 minute weekly sessions, I am however flexible if needed. Performances can be recorded which is always recommended as it helps the student hear exactly how they sound and also the ability to track their progress.

I am also able to offer lessons online and my personal opinion is that the future of teaching will be a combination of face to face lessons and online lessons.

I teach electronic drums, sampling, midi etc, skills which are a necessity for any drummer in the music industry today.

I have a full DBS check and provide the relevant paperwork if required.

Please feel free to get in contact with me and arrange to pop round for a chat and a free, no obligation, first lesson.

Flexible Teaching

Lessons are tailored to suit each pupil. Every student will have different ability, requirements, musical tastes etc and I structure lessons to suit. I am able to teach the Rockschool and Trinity London exam boards which have proved very popular among students


Rockschool is the leading grade system for drums, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards etc.

"RSL was founded on an ethos to provide innovative, contemporary qualifications for music and the arts."

Rockschool now has a fantastic online learning platform called, "RSL Learning Platform."  It features state of the art technology via the Zoom platform to delivery a fantastic online learning experience.

Trinity Syllabus

Trinity College London is one of the most established music exam boards providing graded music exams.

Their Rock & Pop exams feature real songs covering all styles in music, providing the necessary skills needed to succeed in learning drums.
