When I’m not touring I teach drums from both Edinburgh (Music Base in Leith) & Glasgow (Southside), along with Skype lessons for those further afield.
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.
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 (from pop, rock and funk to reggae, latin and jazz) & 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 24 years experience playing drums and over 14 years experience teaching in both the UK & Canada. I’ve toured the world 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.
