The Beat Goes On

In the early 2000s, I spent a year teaching drums at Hardenhuish School in Wiltshire. This was an intense and often painful experience, due to the tiny room and harsh acoustics. So, I vowed that were I to teach drums again, I would do so on my own terms.

A few years later, I set myself up with an electronic kit and began teaching from my own studio. This was a far better arrangement, and the results were very good. A couple of years ago, I decided to focus my attention on composing and performing, so stepped back from teaching once again.

Not, however, before seeing my last student (see above) gain a distinction at Grade 8.
