About Emily

Drum Teacher Cheltenham

I am a full time Cheltenham drumming teacher based in the centre of Cheltenham.  I teach drum lessons one to one privately in my home studio and peripatetic teaching in 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 am a grade 8 drummer playing the drums for 17 years with hundreds of hours teaching experience (I also play piano grade 7 and have music theory grade 5).

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

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 have played in a number of different bands over the past 15 years including “The Boogaloos” (motown to ska to rock and soul) and an originals all female punk band called “Fight Rosa Fight”!  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 am a passionate teacher who loves her job and gets great pleasure from students achieving their goals and enjoying the journey!  I’m all about fun lessons based on the music you love!
