Sam Barnes

Since discovering the drums at the age of 10 I quickly became obsessed with music. I began my musical journey taking drum lessons at school & forming bands with friends, before eventually studying for my degree in Professional Musicianship at BIMM.

I now have over 15 years of studio recording & international touring experience as well as radio play on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6Music, Kerrang!, Planet Rock & more. Associated acts include: Lazybones, Chalk Hands, Howls, Ditz, & Harker.

Whether you're brand new to the drums, need to brush up on your technique, or want to gain more confidence as a performer, I will work with you to help you reach your drumming goals in a relaxed & fun environment. I specialise in teaching Rock / Pop / Punk & Metal so if you like things fast & loud then you've come to the right place!

I offer the majority of my drum lessons from the professional rehearsal facilities of PA Studios in Portslade, just outside of central Brighton. I also teach from other great locations including Brighton Electric, Small Pond & Under The Bridge. Drummers of all ages & abilities welcome!
