Official Covid-19 Response

I am really happy and excited to have resumed face to face teaching, however I appreciate that there are many people who are still shielding and have vulnerable members of their households. I have also seen that many students really enjoy the convenience of studying from their own home and not being limited in their choice of tutor by logistics and travel distance.


With this in mind I am going to be continuing to provide online lessons alongside my face-to-face tuition on an ongoing basis. 


Please see the instructions below with regard to booking any online lessons.  If you have any questions regarding this process, or booking a face-to-face lesson, please get in touch and I will be happy to assist you.


Let’s turn this time of uncertainty into one of creativity!


Whether you are focussed on full kit playing, technique & rudiments, learning theory or studying towards exams and performances; this time of self isolation doesn’t mean these things need to come to a stand still. 


You don't need a full drum kit to benefit from online lessons.  Access to a good quality practice pad can enable us to work through a vast array of exercises and systems to ensure constant progress and development in your playing.


To book an online lesson, please follow these steps:


1. All online lessons will be provided through a Skype video call. Sign up for a free Skype account following this link: Get Skype


2. To maximise lesson efficiency, please check your internet connection speed prior to booking your lesson. This can be done by following this link: Internet Speed Test. To achieve a successful video connection the optimum internet speed is 25Mbps (megabits per second) and above. It is entirely up to you if you would like to proceed with a lower internet speed.


3. You will then be required to pay for this lesson booking through PayPal. If you don’t have a Paypal account, sign up for a free account by following this link: Create a Paypal Account


Please find below direct links to booking your choice of 1 hour or 30 minute lessons - you will have full visibility of all available lessons so you can choose the most convenient session for you.
