Official Covid-19 Response

To my wonderful clients and friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I am suspending all face-to-face lessons for the foreseeable future. No one can have predicted our current situation, however, the health and wellbeing of my clients always has, and always will be my first priority.

None of us knows what lies ahead and how long this situation will last so, even though teaching face-to-face is no longer viable, retaining a sense of normality and familiarity during these times can be very reassuring.

That is why I am bringing your music lessons to you.

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 needs to come to a stand still. You don't need a full drum it to benefit from online lessons access to a good quality practice pad can enable us to work through a vast array of exercises and system to ensure constant progress and development in your playing.

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

To all of you who have regular weekly or bi-weekly lessons, these time slots have been saved for you so when things return to normal, we can too.

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 lesson - you will have full visibility of all available lessons so you can choose the most convenient session for you.

It’s a new experience for us all so if you have any questions at all about this process, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We will work it all out together!

I have been established for over 10 years and a day without music is a very strange day indeed…thank you for supporting my business for all these years, and the many more to come.
