I teach the majority of my drum students an hours lesson each week, with a few taking their lessons every other week - it is totally up to you how often you would like to hold our drum lessons.

'My husband and my 11-year-old son share my interest in heavy, thrash and death metal. We decided we wanted a family activity that we could all take part in. We found Tom who had the same musical taste and was willing to teach all three of us. So we've been having weekly drum lessons. We are all developing at different paces and Tom recognises when we need more help and when we are ready to progress. We are all really enjoying our lessons. Highly recommended.'
'Tom has taught our son drums for the last 3 years, during which time his lessons have provided excellent musical knowledge and experience across various types of music. His work has been a major factor in the successful development of our son's musical skills and appreciation, helping him focus on the theory and rudiments as well as developing his listening skills to understand and play along with different styles of songs. I can confidently recommend Tom as a friendly, knowledgeable and reliable music teacher and expert in his field.'
Having achieved Foundation and Bachelor Degrees in Music Performance, and a Master’s Degree with Distinction in Creative Practice, I am qualified and knowledgeable in many facets in the music industry. Along-side teaching, I used to work in the live production industry; as a back-line technician, rigger and drum technician, acquiring more skills and insight for those wishing to pursue any kind of career in music. Not only did my Masters' studies improve my understanding of how we learn music, but it also provided me with valuable information on the human body and brain, and how they react and develop when learning music. This means you don’t just learn the drums, but you get a body and brain work out with every lesson!
Together, we'll work towards your goals, whether they are: to learn to play for a band, learn songs you like or to achieve Grade 8. For beginner students, I believe learning to play the drums must be done from the ground up. It is a craft and a sport, and learning all of the essential tools and techniques to play is vital for future success.
As a drum teacher, I pride myself on my relaxed and friendly teaching style that helps my students develop quickly with speed and confidence. I have been a student myself, so I understand what it is like and I would be delighted to help you on your musical journey to achieving your goals.
I pride myself on creating a tailored lesson plan for my students based around your goals and interests in music, this unique teaching style has been very successful with students learning all the technical skills to play drums whilst playing the music they love.
