Alongside my professional performance career, I’ve been teaching drums & percussion for over 30 years and have taught hundreds of students in that time – many of them are now professionals in their own right.
My students have played with bands like Van Morrison and The Style Council, they’ve played West End Musicals…they’ve done recordings, TV, radio, films… and they’ve toured the world.
They’ve also become doctors and teachers, run their own businesses, and become great parents.
They’ve been to music college in the UK and the USA. And they’ve carried their love of drums and music with them.

Lessons take place in my purpose-built studio in East Barnet, North London.
It's very easy to get here by car, bike or public transport.
