Man playing the drums

Our Lessons

I teach drummers of all ages and abilities, covering a huge array of different drum and percussion instruments.

Should it take your fancy we can cover any of:

  • Drum Kit (all styles: Rock, Jazz, Latin, Big Band, Funk, Punk, Reggae, Hip Hop, Breakbeats, Drum 'n' Bass, Dubstep, Metal)
  • Congas, Bongos & Timbales (+ assorted afro-cuban instruments)

  • Bodhran (Irish Drum, Reels, Jigs, Hornpipes)
  • Tar (Frame Drums)
  • Percussion
  • Brazilian Percussion (Surdo, Tamborim, Pandeiro, Reco-Reco, Ago Go Bells)

I have built up vast resources over my many years of playing and teaching. I like to help drummers/percussionist to develop their chosen style of music and enable them to experience other styles of playing if they are interested as I believe versatility is important for any style of player. I have taught many students over the years, some of my pupils past & present include:

  • Arya Goggin - Skindred
