“I’ve had lessons with Stuart for many years. He’s brought drums alive for me with relaxed yet challenging lessons. We take a flexible approach of working on a wide variety of styles and techniques depending on what we want to do any given day. A lovely guy who makes you feel you are achieving and progressing”

Keith (Headmaster)

“Stuart worked as a peripatetic drum tutor for many years within the department where I was Director of Music. He is completely professional and reliable and was a valuable member of our team. His lessons were always well planned and expertly delivered. Most importantly he builds good relationships with his pupils, with very obvious mutual respect. Stuart is extremely talented and combines his lessons with ambitious, yet attainable, targets and a sense of fun. All the pupils he taught made excellent progress and loved their lessons with him. I would highly commend him as a teacher….lucky pupils who get the chance to be taught by Stuart!”

Emma (Director of Music)

“Stuart is not only a very proficient drummer (which of course you would expect in a drum tutor) but – equally important – is an excellent teacher. He will frequently use different teaching techniques, adapting to the situation. He is also very empathetic to the needs of the pupil”

Malcolm (ICT professional)

“Two of my children, both girls, have loved their lessons with Stuart.  A patient, enthusiastic and kind teacher”

Rhona (parent)

“Stuart is a great drum and percussion tutor who worked for me for a number of years in that capacity. Professional, engaging and an excellent musician, I can highly recommend him to anyone who wants drums lessons.”

Marcus (Musical Director)

“Stuart is a really good drum teacher and my 11-year-old has been making great progress thanks to Stuart. Lessons over Zoom work surprisingly well. Highly recommended!”

Ed (parent)

“Stuart is a really great drum teacher. I started having lessons online (thanks to Covid); I was unsure about how online lessons would play out, but Stuart made the virtual lessons really straightforward and when I moved on to electric drums he was very helpful in getting them to play through my PC. Stuart is very good at explaining the sheet music I am working on; he is clearly a proficient drummer but also well adept with tech for the 21st Century and a great teacher!”
