I started playing drums over a decade ago when I was lucky enough to have been given a drum kit by some friends.
I was signed up for drum lessons at our local music shop Musicland East, where I now teach, this was when I first came into contact with the drumsense teaching programme from my teacher Geoff Coxon.
From personal experience trust me if you think it might be fun to play the drums, just go for it, it's a great instrument!
I'm happy to help you along that path, I have some good experience in drumming and teaching drums and I've likely made all the mistakes! so I can help you avoid/overcome those too.
All styles/levels and ages are very welcome and all lessons are one to one and completely tailored to you and your learning style in a relaxed and pressure free environment!
So if you want to book a few lessons or even just a trial lesson give me a call anytime,
