My masterclasses can focus on everything from tuning, technical exercises, time signatures, grooves, fills, independence to playing to a click. I specialise in incorporating electronics & sampling into drumming so I love giving lessons on how to introduce & master hybrid drumming.
When I’m home from tour long enough to unpack my sticks, I occasionally teach one on one. If we’re not in the same place at the same time then I give Skype lessons.
Whether you’re a complete beginner, an experienced drummer looking to improve your chops or perhaps you’re in need of a mentor to help turn your passion into your career, I teach all ages & abilities. The only thing I ask is that you’re dedicated!
Learn drums one on one with exciting lessons completely tailored to your needs.
- Be guided through the technical aspects of playing in many different styles & learn rudiments, improvisation and soloing.
- Work your way through the Rock School Graded exams and earn yourself certificates & UCAS points in the process.
- Get to grips with incorporating electronics into your playing; using a Roland SPDSX, creating & triggering samples, explore a hybrid set-up & how it can add to your playing.
- Learn how to write drum parts, perform live & take your drumming to the next level.
I have 27 years experience playing drums and over 16 years experience teaching. I’ve toured the world multiple times with various bands & learned from some of the most renowned drummers. My students have a 100% pass rate for London Trinity Rock School Graded exams.
I’m fully disclosed (disclosure scotland), I’ve completed an honours degree in ‘Popular Music’ and I’ve written a drum tuition book ‘Comic Book Guide to Drumming’. I’m also experienced in teaching students with learning difficulties.
