Drum Lessons

wisdom-teeth-still

From total beginners to advanced students, I offer tailored 1-to-1 lessons in any style of music, with a goal to improve your musicianship, versatility and facility on the drum kit, whatever level that may be. This could include a mix of work on timing/feel, technique, co-ordination/independence, rudiments, composition, theory/odd time signatures, fill ideas etc.

I am also an experienced music producer/engineer so I can offer advice on tone, tuning, setup and recording techniques, as well as how your drumming fits into the music as a whole.

Lessons are available in Richmond and Central London – do get in touch to find out more.

“We are so glad you were recommended to us! Jaden has progressed so much since he joined the school. The part that I like the most is that you start off focusing on the fundamentals of drumming and how that enables you to come up with your own style later on. I truly look forward to the next stage of Jaden’s progress and I have no doubt you will turn him into a great drummer!”
