Both teachers have their own personal studios,which are based at the shop and teach on a one to one basis , with the option of taking 30min, hour or even longer lessons to suit your personal needs.

The aim is to not only offer tutoring towards grades in Guildhall/Trinity and Rockschool (if that is what the you want), but also to help the Pro and Semi Pro drummer achieve sometimes short term/immediate help in overcoming obstacles within their own playing. Many very competent Pro players actually book for short term 'Booster' lessons or even one off lessons. So whatever standard you are and whatever your short term and long term goals are , our drum tutors can help you acheive them initially ascertaining a pupils aims and objectives and then tailor the lessons with a program to suit
