TOM S

Drums

The Gatwick School and privately in and around Worthing

I have been playing for 30 years.  Encouraged by my father to take on anything and everything, I have been a part of many types of ensemble, in many styles.  From Big Bands, Orchestras, Brass Bands, to Rock bands, Tribute Bands and pit orchestras. I have toured Europe and the US and have also recorded an album which had its release at The Royal Albert Hall. I currently play regularly with the Saviours Of Soul, a nine piece soul band and various orchestras including the Sussex Symphony and Burgess Hill Symphony orchestras.  I have been teaching since 2006 in Secondary, private, primary and SEN schools and 2020-21 I taught curriculum music at KS3. I feel enjoyment is paramount when learning an instrument and my teaching approach reflects this  but the devout technician in me ensures that strong progress is made whatever the age, experience or style of music you are into. Grades, Rock, Jazz, Latin, Classical, all styles covered.
