Want to learn to play the drums? Already play but looking to improve? Come and have drum lessons with me at my studio in Cambridge! It's a brilliant facility in which to learn and have fun, and a great location near Cambridge Airport. The studio has two drum kits, acoustic and electronic, side by side, a professional PA system, a nice comfy sofa, ear defenders for parents/partners and tea and coffee for everyone! Here students are able to have their lessons on top-quality professional equipment, and have their drumming recorded in an authentic recording studio environment.


I've had many years of experience as a drum teacher, and teach all ages from five upwards (oldest to date is 75, but would love for that record to be broken!) I teach all levels from beginner to advanced. You can read student testimonials here. I also have full CRB certification, Child Protection and First Aid Training, and Public Liability Insurance.


I'm available for drum lessons 10:00am-8:00pm Monday-Friday, and 9:00am-2:00pm on Saturdays.

Learning the drums and becoming a musician is a wonderful experience that lets people express themselves, make friends and develop a skill that will change their life forever. It really doesn't matter if you haven't done any music before, we can start right from the beginning and go at your pace.

Grade Exams
You can learn and progress through the Trinity or Trinity Rock and Pop Grades. You'll start at Grade 1, a nice simple introduction to the basics of drumming, and finish at Grade 8, a top-level tour of advanced techniques and eclectic musical styles. From Grade 6 upwards, sixth-form students and their parents will be interested to know that UCAS points are awarded, giving students an added advantage when applying to enter university or college.

Learn to play in a band

If Grade exams aren't your thing, you can learn drum technique alongside song structure, learning the tunes of the bands and artists you love, with a view to joining a band and playing with other musicians
