Lessons take place in my drum studio in Sheffield city centre. My studio is fully equipped with two acoustic kits, electronic kit with P.A system featuring playback facility.

Some of my students have gone on to play with bands like Amy Winehouse, Moloko, Will Young, Mark Ronson, Calvin Harris, Craine, Milburn, Area 15, Reverend and The Makers, Human League, Level 42.

I frequently visit many schools hence I have regular CRB checks.
