Chris started playing drums in 1980 and has played in various bands and also orchestras across the UK and Europe. He has been a private drum tutor since 2007 and has taught many students across the age and ability range.
Since 2012, Chris has been an associate lecturer with the Music Department at the University of Plymouth. The main focus has been the structuring and preparation of examined recitals. Previous students have achieved Grade 8 with distinction and have also taken rockschool diplomas.
Whilst many students enjoy working through rockschool grade exams, some students just play for fun.
