What our students say

  • "Mike is a great teacher, fully understanding of what I want to achieve and adapting the lessons to suit my pace (yet always challenging). Every lesson is very rewarding at just the right levels and keeps me developing at a nice pace. Mike is also just a really nice guy, making the lessons an absolute pleasure!"

    Jim Walker - 5 Year Student

  • "Mike is a great teacher. I’m an intermediate player and I have started teaching students, so I wanted some lessons myself to help keep me progressing and advancing to being a better player.
    Mike is a nice genuine friendly guy, and he does his job well. I would recommend his lessons to drummers of all abilities!"

    JB Drums - Educator

  • "Mike is an excellent drum instructor. He’s got the patience of a saint! I was a 65 year old who had never sat at a set of drums before but always wanted to learn. I’m sure he’s found me hard work but he kept at it and I’m getting there. Highly recommended him."

    Phil H - 2 year student

  • "I've been having lessons with Mike for 5 years now. Having no prior experience with drumming Mike has been really patient in teaching me over the years. He's very easy to get along with and always makes the lessons fun. Highly recommended 👍"

    Aimee B - 5 Year Student

  • "I did a two day intensive session with Mike. He quickly understands your situation, pitches his exercises perfectly, plus he is patient and thorough. The intensive days are very well planned and his original materials complement his abilities as a natural teacher. Highly recommended!"

    Andrew H - 2 day intensive course

  • "I had a five day intensive drumming course with Mike and was incredibly impressed with his skills as a teacher. Within a very short time he knew exactly where my many weaknesses and few strengths lay. I learned an incredible amount during the week, Absolutely first class."

    Lexy Anderson - 5 Day Course

  • "I've been learning with Mike for about 4 years now. He's a great, patient teacher and a dead nice guy. Highly recommend!!"
