I am a highly qualified teacher having gained a Diploma in music performance. I’ve also gained around 5 years of teaching experience. I perform live regularly with function bands & touring acts & have been doing so on a weekly basis since 2014.

I have a simple approach to teaching drums to all of my students. That is to make sure you enjoy your lessons. If you want to learn your graded exams or just want to learn the music you love I would be more than happy to help you achieve those goals. I have helped many students see rapid progress through learning the music they love with close attention to technique and making sure we learn all the relevant theory and exercises.

Beginner students are more than welcome. I have experience in teaching both beginners and more advanced players. Regardless of your level of playing, we will make a lesson course that best suits your needs. I also teach learners from ages 7+ as well as adults.

Lessons & Costs

My main focus as explained before is the importance of making the lessons as enjoyable as possible. However, I like to make sure we have a good solid grounding in theory as well as paying attention to technique because all areas are important to become a great drummer. I have years of experience in teaching and playing live that I will draw upon to help you reach the level you are aiming for.

Students of all playing abilities are welcome to take lessons with me. I have a lot of experience in teaching beginners as well as more advanced players who may have a specific aspect of their playing they wish to improve. Every lesson I teach is approached with patience and attention to detail to ensure the progress that every student wants.

My lesson rates start at £15+ for lessons taught at my studio in Cumbernauld. for more information please send me an email at [email protected]


“My 11 year old boy attends drum lessons with Gary. He is extremely shy but thanks to Gary’s patience, my son can now read music and is learning to play the drums confidently. Wouldn’t go to any other drum teacher. Highly recommend” – Susan Leonard

Location of Lessons

I currently teach the majority of my lessons from my drum studio on Grayshill Rd, Cumbernauld, Glasgow, G68 9HQ. This is a great place to learn to play as it is a relaxed and calm environment. I also have all the necessary equipment for the lessons to take place here. The studio is accessible by public transport. Take the X3 from Cumbernauld and get off on Westfield Rd, from there I am only a short walk. I also have a studio located in Clydebank & if you would rather take lessons there, just send me an email for more details. I can also visit you for lessons so this is another option if that works for you.

You can see where I am located on the map below. My full address will be disclosed upon booking your first lesson with me.
