From as young as I can remember, I found myself hitting pots and pans creating rhythms wherever and whenever I could. At age 9 I finally sat down in front of my first drum kit. I was always looking for inspiration and trying to imitate my favourite drummers, from Buddy Rich to Travis Barker. By age 12, I was gigging up and down the country.
I have over 10 years’ teaching experience in private, mainstream and special needs schools and operate my own private teaching practice. I use my primary teacher training skills to bring the best out of my students, tailoring to suit their needs and encouraging a love of music and performing.
I'm a freelance bass player with over 20 years of experience playing with bands around the UK, performing live and studio sessions for original artists and writing, recording and performing my own original material.
I adore many different styles of music from Motown/Funk/Soul/Rock to World Music and everything in between. Groove and feel are essential parts of my playing and teaching
