Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely, I have taught loads of beginners over the years. I can help you understand all the basics of drumming, helping you develop into the drummer that you want to be.

I am based in Stamford Bridge in York. I provide an extremely comfortable and professional studio setting - my studio is set up with two drum kits to make teaching more fluid and comfortable, and I offer the chance for you to record your performances so that you can build up a portfolio.

Absolutely, now all my drum lessons available online are via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime. Please get in touch for more information.

I am happy to teach in a student’s home if they prefer to use their own kit. I will travel up to a 20-mile radius from York, however, home tuition may incur an additional charge for petrol and travelling time. I will confirm a price at the time of the enquiry.

Please bring an A4 Folder for music exercises and notation. A new pair of drumsticks will be required for future lessons once the correct weight and style has been identified. You can view what is available at the shops by reading a special article about Drum Shops in York.

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.

As I am fully CRB checked, you can rest assured your child is learning in a safe and secure environment.

Studio tuition costs are £23.50 per hour. 30-minute lessons at a cost of £15.00 may be available by prior arrangement. Home tuition costs are available on request.

Initially, I will assess you to establish your current level of understanding and ability. I will then agree on a drumming development plan with you. The lessons will incorporate all elements that are required to improve your skill sets as a competent and talented drummer. A list of the various disciplines covered is available on the Home Page.

You will be learning on one of the industries top electronic drum kits, a Roland V Drums – TD12. Occasionally, lessons will also be given on a Mapex Pro acoustic kit.

Should you wish to cancel your drum lesson there will be no charge providing you give at least 24 hours notice. If you cancel a lesson with less than 24 hours warning, you will be expected to pay your normal tuition cost.
