“I offer fun drum kit lessons to beginners, intermediates and professionals alike in East Sussex. Whether you’re just starting out on this great instrument or you are well versed and want to look at other areas of your playing, I can help you achieve your potential. All one-on-one lessons are conducted either at my studio in East Sussex or at your house.
