YOUR LESSONS, YOUR JOURNEY
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced player, I build a lesson plan unique to you, always taking into account your goals and aspirations .
BUILDING GOOD FOUNDATIONS
At the core of my approach is teaching the fundamental building blocks of technique.
Developing the correct method and mechanics is the key to getting results in any area of studies.
The aim is to make learning fun, build confidence and develop musicianship.
My studio is set up to maximise the learning process.
I use technology in the form of slow down software as well as audio play back and recording.
Such approach is very useful in identifying strengths and weaknesses so that students of all abilities can hear and see the true picture of their playing.
This lesson environment has proved many times to be valuable for experienced students preparing for an important gig or recording session.
Videos can also be produced for YouTube drum covers.
Over the last two decades, I have developed a vast resource of studies and corresponding audio material in all the major contemporary styles of drumming.
This library includes hundreds of great transcriptions of songs and instrumental music.
If Pop, Classic or modern Rock, Funk, RnB, Hip Hop, Blues, Jazz, Brazilian or Afro Cuban drumming is your thing, I have it covered!
THE LANGUAGE OF MUSIC
Reading music and drum notation in particular is much easier than some people think.
It is an important aspect of learning an instrument and a very valuable asset when playing with other musicians.
It is only a means to an end however. The ultimate goal is to let it flow and enjoy making music.

"David has been massively helpful in improving my drumming and identifying patterns in my playing and issues with my technique I had never thought of before. In the space of a year I have made huge improvements with my coordination, time keeping and overall sound.
David has also helped reinvigorate my passion for the drums. Could not recommend highly enough.”
"David has a fantastic ability to breakdown technique, demonstrate and teach you what you need to pick things up quickly... The breadth of his musical knowledge is impressive... I have been surprised by how he has enabled me to capture the feel of different musical styles whilst improving my technique all the time.
"I started as a complete beginner and feel very lucky to have found David as a teacher. My lessons are structured around exactly what I want to get out of them and I've been making progress steadily while really enjoying it..."
