I have been drumming for over 14years, and am qualified in academic courses including a; Level 3 Extended Diploma in Music Technology, and a Bachelor of Arts (with honours) degree in Music Production.

Teaching music is about revealing musical potential, created by the experiences, and fun, from an individual’s journey of learning. This philosophy of teaching should be tailored to each individual, and how they want to express themselves through their instrument. To truly focus, and enjoy these skills being developed, in technique, mentality and ability. And from this, explore the benefits, playing music has to offer!
