  • Studio Indoors
  • Studio Looking In

I'm reluctant to confess that I have been teaching drum kit and percussion for over twenty years now - because it makes me seem older than I feel!

For the last fifteen of these I have been based at The Vale Drum Studio near Cowbridge. The Studio is a dedicated drum-teaching facility boasting both acoustic and electronic kits as well as a wide range of percussion and other learning resources.

The space was adapted in 2020 so that lessons can be covid-secure: most notable is that the studio is split in half by a perspex screen, so that the student can have half the studio to themselves, and I can stay in the other half.

But we still keep lessons fun, friendly, relaxed and productive - the studio is a fabulous environment for people to grow more proficient and confident behind the drums..

I cater for the whole spectrum of ability, from total beginner to gigging professional. Some people learn as a hobby; others wish to gain formal qualifications; some even wish to make careers in music; but everybody learns for fun, and that’s the basis of my teaching style.

Rates are £40 per hour: shorter lessons are available for younger or less experienced students, and are charged pro rata.

I am a member of the Musician’s Union, I have a current CRB Check and Public Liability Insurance, and I display a Student and Teacher Protection Policy at the Studio.
