About Me

The biggest drumming school in Manchester and with a roster of over 50 students, I have been playing drums for 17 years and teaching for 10.

A student of UK drumming legend Dave Hassell, I have been privileged to also work as a session musician, train theatre musicians in the art of performance and start a number of my own projects.

Teaching drums is my life; where most teachers teach part time and top up their income in schools I teach solely 1-1 in the studio, making me one of the best private teachers in the North West.

My reach isn't just limited to Manchester, I have students from all over the globe having lessons with me through Skype, and people from all over the country enjoying my drumming courses.


Recent Work

Student Support

With 19 years experience in drums and being trained by the best, I have great knowledge in teaching with a practical approach, and adapting my teaching style for each student. My passion for drumming speaks volumes, and I am available 24/7 for my students with advice or anything else they may need me for.


Drumming therapy

Learning drums also helps for a large number of common health issues; the therapeutic aspects particularly in drums are renowned. I have taught students with high levels of stress, depression, anxiety and students with motor-skill conditions such as cerebral palsy. They have all gone on to stress the benefits of learning drums to help their respective conditions.
