I'm an experienced professional player and teacher, based in Dursley, Gloucestershire and I take on students of all ages and levels.

I cover every aspect of kit playing - technique, rudiments, reading, grooves and fills in every style, double bass drum, playing with a click and musicality.
I also teach established methods using classic books like Ted Reed's Syncopation and George Lawrence Stone's Stick Control.

Exam tuition is available, but not obligatory. In 10 years of entering students I've never had a failure.
The syllabus I favour is Rock School but if you want to work towards another exam that's no problem.
I enter students right up to grade 8 standard.

For advanced students I offer comprehensive tuition in the Moeller Technique, which I studied for 3 years with Bob Armstrong and ex-student of Bob's, Rick Finlay.

I also teach Latin and African percussion, recording techniques and music technology.

My teaching experience includes 25 years as a private teacher and work as a drum teacher in over a dozen schools.

My playing experience includes work with The Eurythmics, Peters and Lee, Danielle Dax, Bobby Crush, Lyn Paul and Paula Wilcox.

I've studied with the following established drum teachers: Bob Armstrong, Rick Finlay, Drumtech and legendary jazz drummer Clifford Jarvis. I've also studied latin percussion with master percussionist Robin Jones.

I am CRB checked


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.
