Read more of Chris’ Biography

I started lessons with Chris in 2010, after having tried a few different tutors in the Plymouth area and not quite gelling with any of them. After my first lesson with Chris, I knew that he would be the one to guide me on my journey to becoming a better drummer. His patience and knowledge of music and different styles are second to none, particularly being able to break down complex ideas to make them achievable and fun at the same time. Chris has a knack for making you enthusiastic for the instrument even when you’re having an off day, his incredibly personable approach to the instrument is infectious, and through years of being his pupil i developed my playing to a level that i know I would never have achieved on my own terms. I cannot thank Chris enough for being my teacher, and now ten years down the line I am fortunate to be a professional musician utilising the skills he passed onto me every day. I could not recommend Chris enough, for any age or any ability, he is the best person to guide you, inspire you and push you to being a better drummer, and in my case a more patient individual.
