Tutor Profile: Colin Woolway


I'm Colin Woolway, a well known drummer, teacher and author of Drumsense Volumes 1 & 2, which are rapidly becoming the standard books for teaching beginners to play the drum kit. As a professional drummer I toured the world for 20 years, including eight years as Suzi Quatro's drummer, and then I hung up the touring boots to concentrate on teaching.

This resulted in a very busy teaching studio, the aforementioned books, a percussion video and more recently, the Drumsense Teaching Project. I also write an educational column, called Teasers, each month for Rhythm magazine, the only UK-produced drummers' magazine. I have been regularly contributing for four years and Rhythm is just about to publish a selection of my Teasers in one book, which will be sold as a fun, educational aid.

Teaching location: Twickenham
