About Me

Kelvin Williams BEd

I offer professional private drumming tuition out of my studio based in Meysey Hampton (8 mins from Cirencester / 4 mins from Fairford) and peripatetic teaching in primary and secondary schools.

Each lesson is tailored to your individual needs and goals and believe learning should be fun for all ages.  I give my students a solid foundation in drumming giving them access to styles such as Rock, Pop, R&B, Funk, Jazz, Reggae, Ska, Latin, Metal & Grunge and many more. Free Introductory Lesson!

My 24 years drumming experience playing with original and cover bands and a 13 year career in primary school teaching, BEd qualified, has given me the ability to break down information in a clear and easy to understand way and make drumming accessible to everyone.

We have a growing library of learning resources and backing tracks for students to play along to making practice and learning so much more inspiring.

I teach the popular and well respected RockSchool syllabus from Debut grade to grade 8 or students can learn just for fun!

Lesson Information

Drumming Lessons For Adults (All ages)

Everyone Can Learn The Drums!  Everyone is different and therefore requires a personal flexible approach.  We use our years of experience to create the perfect progression of learning for You.  This includes focusing on music styles you enjoy and learning your favourite pieces, all incorporated in a personalised learning programme design to get you where you want to be at your pace.

Drumming Lessons For Children (6 years and up)

We believe learning the Drums should be FUN and that its al about motivation!  We engage students and keep learning relevant to them by teaching current modern songs and pieces that they know & love.  All pieces work hand in hand with the grade systems we teach and reinforce all technical elements required.  Our students are enthusiastic and eager to learn new pieces, they want to play at home and want to show off their skills to their friend.

Online Resources

Our online resources includes numerous backing tacks for students to play along to.  As well as helping to develop timing and expression this makes practice a thing of pleasure rather than a chore.

Drum Grades

They assess progressive mastery on a musical instrument from Entry Level (Debut) up to Grade 8. Through reinforcing knowledge across all sections of the exam, they help candidates consolidate their learning and develop their skills in a more stimulating and enjoyable way.
