Drumming Jim's Drum Tuition

I have always enjoyed rhythm from an early age. Initially tapping along to music in the car, air drumming to Bon Jovi songs and watching great drummers perform, I realised that drums were the instrument for me. My parents bought me my first drum kit when I was 10 and I was soon to learn that drums would be a lifelong passion. Since then I have had private one to one tuition for 8 years, progressing forward in all areas of my drumming development such as reading music, learning new styles and improving on my feel and sound, as well as taking graded Guildhall examinations.

I had joined my schools wind, jazz and rock band as well as performing in a marching band and setting up my own group with friends. I played a vast amount of gigs and concerts in all these bands playing in front of audiences of up to 2000 people. I have also had the experience of playing and performing with the Royal Marines and Army bands.
