My Mission
Customised Drum Lessons

Your lessons will be very customised, so you won’t just learn the basics of drumming, but also how to play your favourite songs, how to develop specific techniques and how to play styles such as rock, pop, funk, metal, jazz and much more.

Everything will be more focused on music than only on exercises, then you’ll find out that since the very first lesson you will be able to play along with a song.

Together we will learn in a way that works for you.

My Lessons
New Method To Learn Drums

Too often learning how to play an instrument means to do exercises by your own: I want to make you play the drums on real songs, such as the backing tracks of your favourite songs, so you can find out how the things we study can be applied on real music and that gives you the chance to enjoy more the practice of this complex instrument.

At the same time I'll take you through your favourite styles to help you to develop specific techniques, always keeping in mind the music must be fun first of all.

Prices:
£28 per hour at my studio
£30 per hour at your home

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

I can help you

I would like to share with you my passion for drumming, not just teaching how to play, but also trying to involve you in the world of drums in all its aspects: I’ll show you videos of great drum performances, I’ll recommend you drummers to follow and some records to listen to improve your background. I can help you also to set up and to tune your drum kit and I’ll provide you all the didactic materials (music sheets, backing tracks and much more); we can focus the lessons on your particular interests (i.e. double pedal technique, how to develop a drum solo).

Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons are currently charged at £30 per hour when learning at your home and £28 per hour when learning at my studio.

I teach many of my lessons from a rehearsal studio based in Edinburgh, it is a great place to learn to play the drums with fantastic equipment. I can also visit you for lessons if this is better.

Yes, I teach students of all ages. Parents are welcome to sit in (and join in!) my drum lessons should they wish to.

If you wish to cancel a lesson there will be no charge as long as you let me know that 48h in advance. If you cancel a lesson with less than 48h hours warning, you will be expected to pay your normal tuition cost.

Yes, that is absolutely no problem at all as long as you can accept that to be able to play the music that you wish we might have to learn aspects of drumming through other songs as a stepping stone. It would be senseless to sit down at the kit and start learning a drum solo by a drumming great before you have a grasp of a simple drum beat - therefore we can certainly create a journey of lessons that enable you to play the music of one artist that draws on a variety of different sources to get you there.
