I started playing the drums at the age of 13 and since then have played and recorded with a very wide spectrum of musicians, covering everything from punk, through prog-rock and metal to drum 'n' bass and jazz. Before I took lessons I felt that I had "hit a brick wall" with my playing - I couldn't work out how to play what I wanted. I studied under Paul Cleaver for a number of years and through lots of study and practice of the rudiments and techniques and mentoring from Paul, I was able to understand how to play what I was hearing in my "mind's ear". Consequently I became a much more expressive, versatile and therefore sought-after drummer. I firmly believe that taking lessons from a good tutor is vital in becoming the musician you want to be and more!
Earlier this year I joined the Drumsense roster of tutors. Drumsense is a worldwide-proven learning programme which is structured, logical and also fun. I also hope that I can act as a mentor to my students and pass on some of my experience and tips that aren't necessarily included in the books.
I teach in the Bridgwater and Taunton areas. If you have your own kit I can travel to you, I can also give lessons at my home on my Yamaha DTX530 electronic kit or at a local rehearsal studio (for a small extra charge) on my Yamaha Maple Custom acoustic kit.
My teaching rates are extremely competative and, as an introductory special to my new students, I am offering a FREE evaluation session!
