"Sam is a great teacher! He has been amazing in motivating our boy from scratch, and all via Zoom. He is always positive and encouraging and is very methodical and meticulous in teaching new skills. We are impressed with how much our boy has learned in just a few months. I really like listening to him practising, though as a mum I was not keen on drums initially. Sam gave us good advice when we made the commitment to buy an electronic drum kit. Our son looks forward to his time with Sam every week- we could not be happier with our Drum teacher."
