Mcr Drum Lessons

I have a very friendly and relaxed teaching style, with the emphasis on learning things that will help the student develop, making sure they are enjoying themselves as much as possible. I am very patient with my students and understand that everyone learns at their own speed. I work from my own methods and teachings, initially installing the foundations of excellent technique and building from there, incorporating rudiments, co-ordination, timing and developing your reading and listening skills (song analysis).

No student is ever the same; after we've covered the basics I will cater the lessons more towards your preferences. My lessons are designed to be great fun, but informative at the same time. I encourage all my students to ask plenty of questions however 'odd' they might sound.

A lot of people ask me if they are too old to start learning and my response is always the same, NO WAY!! I have taught students of all ages and it made no difference whatsoever, drums are all about enjoyment!

I teach drum theory at an advanced level and incorporate this into my lesson plans, but my lessons are catered to more of a practical approach towards learning drums.

If you wish to do gradings I put my students in for all grades (1-8) and have a 100% pass rate.

The Studio

Mcr Drum Lessons

I am based just up from Picadilly Gardens in Central Manchester, which makes it ideal for anyone in the North West to reach me. My studio is a sound-proofed large space with all modern equipment. Students have the choice of an acoustic Yamaha or an electric Roland kit. Both kits are high spec and have everything you need to feel comfortable at either one. The studio has free Wi-Fi, is fully air conditioned and even has a fridge with complimentary drinks!


I am proud to be an official education ambassador for Roland Drums. These are great kits to learn on and have many more features tailored specifically to teaching which regular acoustic kits do not, such as metronome, one-touch record and much more.
