WHAT I LOVE ABOUT DRUMS IS THAT YOU’RE THE DRIVING FORCE OF THE BAND, AND YOU GET TO PLAY ALL KINDS OF
GENRES, FINDING THE RIGHT GROOVE TO COLLECTIVELY ACHIEVE THE SOUND THE BAND IS AIMING FOR. I’VE BEEN PLAYING
FOR 30 YEARS, STARTING WITH INDIE AND 60S INSPIRED ROCK, THROUGH TO ACID JAZZ, FUNK, BLUES, FOLK, REGGAE,
LATIN, POP, POST-PUNK, PSYCHEDELIA, KRAUTROCK, SHOEGAZE AND MORE. I LOVE PLAYING LIVE AND HAVE TOURED
INTERNATIONALLY, BUT ALSO LOVE THE ACHIEVEMENT OF RECORDING AND HAVE PLAYED ON RELEASES ON RECORD LABELS
SUCH AS LAST GANG RECORDS, LOST ROOM RECORDINGS, GREENSLEEVES AND OTHER SMALL INDIE LABELS.
MY INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC WAS PLAYING OTHER INSTRUMENTS IN A CLASSICAL CONTEXT, THEN BRIEFLY STARTED
PERCUSSION LESSONS WHICH ENABLED ME TO PLAY IN THE ESSEX YOUTH ORCHESTRA. WHEN THE PERCUSSION TEACHER LEFT
AND A KIT TEACHER REPLACED HIM, I KNEW IT WAS FOR ME. I ALSO HAVE AN HND IN PRODUCTION AND A BA (HONS)
IN MUSIC FOR MEDIA.
I LOVE SHARING MY PASSION FOR DRUMS AND WANT STUDENTS TO EXPERIENCE THE SAME ENJOYMENT I DO, LEARNING AND
PLAYING IN BANDS.
