This week's featured tutor ... 

Richard Crossley (UK)

Richard Crossley


My name is Richard Crossley, I’m a musician based in Salford & Manchester.

I have been passionately playing drums for the past 15 years.

Since graduating with a BA (hons) in Contemporary Popular Music in 2007 I have been involved in various musical projects.

My greatest achievements gained so far are, gigging Wembley Stadium for NFL football, having the privilege of playing on live radio sessions and having air play on BBC South Radio, Absolute Radio, XFM and BBC 6Music.

I have also played on various recording sessions at studios such as 811 sound studios (Cowfold), Tracks Studios (Gosport) Lumen studios (Brighton) and Vamp recording studios (Reading).

I currently play in a self lead Jazz trio, a big band called ‘The New Lights Big Band’ and a Rockabilly Band called ‘Rockabilly Fever’.

I have experience in teaching students of all ages and can teach all rhythms and styles such as Jazz, Swing, Rock, Afro Cuban, Samba, Brushes sight reading & snare drum.

Whilst using the Drumsense syllabus and teaching concepts, I can also take students through grades 1-8 using Rock School and Trinity College graded course material.

My Approach to Teaching

I believe that no individual student is the same, meaning I approach every student I teach with the view to understand their individual needs, aspirations, strengths and weaknesses in order to create an individual path of development.

I take an understanding and enthusiastic approach to each individual I teach and aim to expose my students to as much new music and grooves as possible to help them succeed and be inspired throughout their musical studies!

I am MU registered & DBS checked, an up to date certificate can be presented on request

If you are interested in studying with me please call me on the provided mobile number or email address.
