“I’ve had Dan as a teacher for six years now and have never even thought of studying with anyone else. Through this time he’s taught me how to develop my own style as a drummer, shown me solid technique and helped me take my grade 8 exam along the the way. I would always recommend him to anyone wanting to take up drums”.


…”Dan has been teaching me for the last 7 years. He is enthusiastic and friendly. He teaches a wide musical/ style variety, and enables technical improvement. With his support I have progressed through grades 1-8 of Rockschool. He is committed, focused and supportive.”
