For once in our beautiful country, we can celebrate the delights of warm sunshine. This time of year, I usually disappear to Eastern Europe to see my wife’s family- quite often equipped with a drum pad and sticks. I would typically spend many hours on the patio going through my stick exercises. It goes without saying that we need commitment to do this, but I’m also a firm believer that your surroundings encourage practice and positivity. Most people would agree that a good working environment is a must for us to achieve our goals.

August 15th and 22nd

I will be giving you the chance to enjoy the sunshine at my home. I will be running two classes, each lasting for two hours. I have put together a very comprehensive rudiment session featuring sticking patterns I personally use in my playing. I will also be talking about how these rudiments can be used on the kit- not just as patterns, but as musical phrases and melodic patterns.

The class will cost £30 per person and is open to all students who currently learn with me. There is no minimum or maximum age. In fact, I actively encourage different age groups to work together. I will also provide lunch for all students.

The class will be restricted to five students and you can easily book your place using the PayPal (on the right).
