"I had always been a fan of Andrew’s before meeting him for my first lesson. His teaching provides the support and encouragement that every keen musician needs to succeed. Andrew is a great all round musician and a very inspiring teacher!” - Lewis Searle

Kylie Minogue (for 7 years)
Massive Attack (for 10 years)
& many more….
you can be confident that the principles I use will actually work for you.
“I remember walking away from my first lesson with Andrew feeling like I'd almost re-learned the drums, despite having played for 15 years, with various teachers and a music degree. His commitment to teaching is fantastic, Andrew's lessons influenced me in so many ways, but mostly how to fall back in love with playing the drums” - Sian Monoghan

“My son started having lessons with Andrew at the age of 7 and was inspired from day one with an enthusiasm for the drums that persists to this day. With Andrew’s professionalism and personable demeanour, you have the hallmarks of an exceptional teacher who is passionate about the progress of others. If you as a parent want your child to be taught by the best, Andrew is certainly in that class. Highly recommended.” - Dean Fearon
