Private tuition

Welcome to my private tuition page.

Private tuition

Tuition is available to all. I teach all styles and techniques from beginner to advanced. Including... Rock, Funk, Jazz, Latin, sight reading, Double bass drumming, Rudiments, Linear drumming etc...

Notice to parents

I encourage parents to accompany their children in the lessons. I have a comfortable sofa in my studio for you.
I have had a full CRB check. You are welcome to see documentation.


I use Trinity Guildhall school of music and drama and Rock School examinations grades 1-8 which have proved to be very popular with both students and parents. I also have an exceptional pass rate, all at a very high standard!


I use the latest Roland electronic drums in a purpose built studio with sampling facilities, play alongs and recording equipment.
