I initially studied pipe band drumming to learn all the rudiments needed before studying the full drum kit. I first played with local pop bands in central Scotland and then left the country to play the drums in Jersey, Isle of Wight, Spain, and England.
I went on to become a Session Drummer in England working for the Beverley Agency and played in a variety of venues all over England. I returned to Scotland and enhanced my drumming experience by studying various other types of drum music under the guidance of Andy White from the BBC. I then studied how to read drum music under the guidance of the percussionist with the Scottish Symphony Orchestra.I still play with various bands when asked but now mostly teach.
