About Chris

Drum Teacher Cheltenham

I am a full time Cheltenham based drum teacher.  I teach drum lessons on a one to one privately in a popular studio just out of the town centre, and I teach in several schools throughout Cheltenham.

I believe lessons should be fun and work hard to tailor each lesson to the individual student, their musical tastes and needs.

I’ve been playing drums for 13 years. I play in 3 bands and have loads of live playing and recording experience in different styles. I’m a big rock music fan but also enjoy playing different styles of hip hop and classic pop. My performance experience has given me a very practical approach to my teaching allowing me to breakdown music theory and explain it in an easy to understand way.  This also helps me to encourage and support students to get into performing and playing in bands.

I can teach a variety of genres including rock, pop, funk, and punk, and I am happy to help students prepare for graded exams from both Rockschool and Trinity.

I have a deep understanding of music theory and technique and can break this information down easily so that students young and old can understand and benefit.

I am a passionate teacher who loves his job and gets great pleasure from students achieving their goals and enjoying the journey.  I love teaching and inspiring people to play music!
