I am an experienced drum and guitar teacher, having worked with students from all backgrounds, demographics and ability levels, both individually and in group sessions. I have delivered lessons both privately and within formal educational settings such as The University of Sunderland and numerous Secondary Schools. In my work for organisations such as Groundworks and Catch 22, I have lead workshops and group drumming activities.


Lessons are available in a professionally equipped practice room or within the student’s home. All ages and abilities welcome.
