One-to-one drum lessons from a professional drummer in central Bath…

I have over 30 years playing experience and 15 years teaching from my private studio here in Widcombe, Bath. As well as teaching and playing, I was Course Director for the annual Rhythmfest summer school for 3 years.

New students can expect to be up and running with simple grooves played along to music and the basics of reading within a couple of lessons.

For more established drummers I can tailor lessons according to need, whether that be focusing on technique, groove development, coordination or any of the many issues you may be struggling with!
