PRO Banbury Drum Teacher and Clinician
Welcome to my website! If you want to learn how to play the drums, you've come to the right place. I have the most 5 star reviews of any drum tutor in the Banbury area, they're all genuine too! To see what my current students say about their tuition, click here to view my endorsement page. Scroll to the bottom of the page to read the reviews. You're also welcome to speak with any of my existing students too.
I offer 'private' pro drum lessons, not drum classes, as everyone is an 'individual' in terms of learning new skills. I strongly believe that teaching ‘one on one’ produces ‘by far’ the best results that enable me to adapt and tailor my approach to match each student and their preferred way of learning and processing information. Whether it’s drum lessons for adults
or drum lessons for kids, as a beginner, I always manage to find a way forward that is both
fun and rewarding and not too stressful for each student.
I teach privately at my purpose-built, 'soundproofed' and air-conditioned drum studio located at ePianos Music Academy in Banbury (formerly One Man Band Music Shop in Banbury), St. Johns Priory, Bloxham Primary School and Christopher Rawlins Primary School *I am 'Child Safeguard' certified; click here to view my certificate. I also hold three 'enhanced' DBS/CRB certificates; click here and here to view all three certificates*. For video directions to the studio, click here.

I teach from age 5 upward using varying methods that I have acquired from more than 30 years of classically based education and graduation from The Musicians Institute www.mi.edu in the USA. I teach all aspects of drumming from sight-reading, kit tuning; click track work, equipment maintenance, gigging, sessions and everything else drum related. I also do a lot of improvisational work, playing to all manner of artists.
I have played in many musical set up's from pit orchestra, classical, Jazz, Rock and Fusion mix. I also do studio session work. My teaching style is relaxed, very professional and individually 'tailored' to each student.
