ONE TO ONE
I take my students on a journey where they get explore the history of music through rhythm.
They will learn the most essential tools a drummer needs covering:
Whether you’re a complete beginner or have years of experience behind the kit I will custom build the lessons to fit your needs.
We always start the lessons with a drum solo, which has been a transformative experience for many students truly connecting with the drums to find your own unique voice and form of self-expression. We will also play your favourite songs and have a lot of fun!
When I’m in London you can book a lesson with me in my studio in Central London.
You can also book and online lessons with me via Skype.
