As a professional drummer and drum teacher, I have played in a variety of bands for almost 20 years. I have performed over 500 gigs in the UK, Europe and America, recording demos, EPs and albums along the way. With experience in studio recording and session work, I have played with many different artists.
After completing a diploma in ‘Popular Music’ at Leeds College of Music in 2001, I obtained a degree in ‘Creative Music and Sound Technology’ at Leeds Metropolitan University in 2005.
I have several years’ experience of teaching drum lessons to pupils of all ages. Currently I play drums in a professional function band called ‘The Players’, playing a variety of gigs including large venues for corporate clients.
