The Power of Practice
The drums are like any other instrument with a set of fundamental principles that form a vocabulary: the building blocks of the language of drums. However, in order to communicate fluently through rhythm, you first have to give it time and patience learning through practice.
To avoid wasted time and expedite your fluency I will personalise a practice routine that focuses on your knowledge and technique for you to go home and practice. It is a two way street after all.

Robert graduated from Leeds College of Music in 2010 with a 1st Class Honours degree in Popular Music. He has since toured internationally playing with various ensembles. Robert has been teaching drums for over 20 years.

Based on years of teaching experience, you get the most from 40 minute sessions. We efficiently cover what you have learned since the previous lesson, refine technique and learn new material. It is also best for leaving wanting more!
Nothing. Your first lesson is free and Robert will provide all of the material including the drum sticks for this first lesson. After the first lesson he will provide you with information on what you will need going forward.
“I wouldn’t necessarily think of it as homework but an opportunity to carve out some space in the day to learn a form of personal expression that is purely for yourself and no other. By the time you’ve completed your 10th lesson you will most likely need, rather than want to practice!” – Robert
At the early stage of learning the drums the simple answer to this question is no – you do not need a drum kit to begin learning the drums. Pillows, pots and pans (to your neighbours’ dismay), the floor, bits of wood: these are all useful tools to begin your learning journey. At some point however, once the bug bites you may consider investing in a kit, at which point Robert will be able to advise you on the best options.
Lessons are conducted in person at Robert’s studio in the Walthamstow/Leyton area or remotely via video link.
