Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons are currently charges at £15 per hour and £23.50 per hour for all students.

I am a mobile drum teacher, so will travel to you to provide drum lessons in the comfort of your own home. I can also offer drum lessons at my dedicated teaching studio in Stamford Bridge, York. Please get in touch for more details.

I am able to offer lessons on either an acoustic or an electronic kit. Due to the size of this equipment, it is advisable that students are a minimum age of 8 years old. I am happy to provide tuition to younger students if they own a kit that is suitable for their age group. Remember you are never too old to learn, my recent students include a budding 72-year-old rock star.

Ultimately there is nothing quite like the connection between you and an acoustic drum kit. The natural wood and finish of the kits are quite simply breathtaking and the sound they create is just pure pleasure. Every kit has its own sound due to the different quality of woods and manufacture. Remember the sound levels on an acoustic kit are not easily controlled therefore it is extremely important to protect your ears to avoid long term damage.

In a learning environment, the feel and response of the Roland V Drums – TD12 replicates an acoustic drum kit, with the added bonus of controlling noise levels. Built-in programs will develop the timing and technique of the individual. As it is less offensive in a home environment you can stay friendly with your local neighbour which is always a bonus. And remember it is also kinder to your own ears, which is an important factor, particularly for younger students.
