“A band is only as good as its drummer”anon

I have been teaching drums since 1995, and currently teach at Norwich School. I also offer a limited number of drum lessons at the Create Norwich just 1.5 miles from Norwich City Centre.

Lessons are available for all levels of players, from complete beginners to advanced students.

My lessons a give a solid grounding in the essential skills drummers require in bands and groups, particularly timekeeping, reading, technique and improvisation. I teach a wide range of styles, including pop, rock, funk, blues, progressive rock and many more.

For those drummers who aspire to be session players, I teach studio skills such as playing with click tracks and interpretation of guide charts.

I am a big fan of electronic percussion and technology, and can offer advice on integrating electronics into an acoustic setup, and creating /editing samples,

More practical topics are also covered such as drum tuning, equipment maintenance, drum and drumhead selection, and ergonomics.

All pupils are given the option of taking Rockschool drum kit examinations if required.

I am proud that many of my past and present pupils are professional or semi-professional gigging musicians.

Here are just a few of the bands/artists my pupils have played with:

Witchers, Sounds Imperial, Stephen Dale Petit, Moriah, Ultra90s Fresh, Lee Vann, Keep It Secret, Horo Quintet, The Brownies, Counterpoint, 64 Stitches and many more.
