About Chris

Drum Teacher Cheltenham

Hello Drummers! I am a Cheltenham based drum tutor, offering 1 on 1 lessons at my teaching studio or online or at home. I also teach in schools across Cheltenham. Teaching skill levels from beginner to advanced, for ages 6 and above!

I have been drumming for over 14years, and as well as being a grade 8 rock school qualified drummer I have completed 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, from the fun and inspiration created from learning an instrument which should be tailored to each individual, to express themselves and focus on what they themselves want to be learning. This will provide each person with the drive and excitement in developing the knowledge and skills in techniques within their instrument and from this, reach their targets and experience the benefits from learning music.

I am certified for academic tutoring for grading and exam preparation through Rockschool RSL contemporary arts syllabus. I am more than happy to teach any preferred grading syllabus if preferred. I focus on techniques and styles including: Rock, Pop, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Classical, Blues, RnB, Punk, Metal, EDM and more… I am fully DBS checked, and also a member of the Musicians Union with public liability insurance.

An experienced musician, I have performed around the UK as a band member, session drummer (live and studio), dep musician, audio engineer and producer. Working with professional artists and bands such as Sapphire Blues, Watercolours, Stelphy, Kocky, Sean Walker at various Studios including Invada Studios, Factory Studios, Rockfeld Studios, Skeme Studios, Future-works Neve Studios, BCU Studios, and more… Performing shows around numerous UK venues and festivals such as The Louisiana, The Exchange, Mothers Ruin, The Victoria Dalston, Frog-fest, Underground Festival, Lakefest Official, Broad-stone festival, 2000 Trees festival and more.
