Testimonials

Richard made my drumming lesson experience excellent and very engaging. I’ve had previous teachers, but I’ve never had this much fun while learning until studied under Richard. His ability to make learning enjoyable and engaging truly made all the difference. Not only was he incredibly helpful at giving me good tips about technique and rhythm, but his approach made every lesson a pleasant experience. You can tell that he’s got a genuine desire to help you become better and the experience that he brings to the lessons is truly invaluable. To anyone starting out or wanting to improve in any discipline within music, I would recommend Richard as your teacher any day of the week!
