Hi, I have been playing drums for as long as I can remember, and at the age of 7 decided to give the art of Pipe Band snare drumming a go, and was the first formal drumming lessons that I received. This introduced me to rudiments and playing traditional grip.

I presently still play in a pipe band having worked my way to the top level (grade 1) with Strathclyde Police Pipe Band. I have played there for 14 years under the leadership and guidance of world renowned snare drummer Eric Ward.

During my early teens I played with various rock bands one in particular which became fairly successful and winning many battle of the bands competitions which was a valuable experience for me at a young age on how to perform, rehearse, and record in studios. This gave me a good grounding to move on and become semi-professional in function bands with whom I still play with today.

Over the years some performing highlights have included supporting the proclaimers at Stirling Castle, T in the Park Festival (5 times), playing for the Queen at the Royal Variety Command Performance, with the Pipe Band in Moscow’s Red Square alongside the late Pavarotti, performed as opening act in the Royal Concert Hall Glasgow at the twice held Scottish Drum days.

After being involved in part time and voluntary tutoring for nearly 20 years, I decided to take up professional drum teaching in 2008. Working from my purpose built music room at home I teach on a one to one basis on two acoustic kits (sonor & mapex orion). I teach from age 8 upwards and enjoy teaching whether it be for fun or more advanced purposes. Seeing the progression of my pupils is very rewarding.

I have chosen the Drumsense teaching program as I believe you need to add structure to your lessons and this is obviously a very successful tried and tested teaching method which is held in high regard.
