I’m a friendly professional drummer offering lessons covering technique (including Moellor), timekeeping, reading and musicality. Students of all abilities welcome, from aged 8 upwards: whether you’ve never picked up a pair of sticks before or you’ve been playing for years and want to improve your technique.
Drawing on over 20 years playing experience, including 15 years of touring and recording professionally in the UK, EU & USA (including regular BBC 6 Music sessions) I teach from a studio in the Northern Quarter, Manchester city centre. I also have a junior drum kit perfect for those growing drummers. I have performed with artists such as Jane Weaver, Kiran Leonard, Lonelady, Irma Vep and many others. I have guested with Damo Suzuki (CAN), Rhys Chatham and have had tours supported by Arts Council England (2018), Jazz North’s Northern Line scheme (2017-2018) and Jazz Services (2013). I have a special interest in improvisation.
