Welcome...

Hi, welcome to the site.

As a professional musician  I have had a career both as a session/touring performer covering all styles of music, and performing and writing with artists whose credits include Amy Winehouse, Craig David, James Brown BB King, Will Young and many others. This has included several TV and radio broadcasts.

As an educator I have held several teaching posts teaching students from 5-50, amateur to professional, and new students are always welcome.

Realise your potential not only as a drummer but also as a musician.

Please explore the site which gives you the chance to download some tunes.

Check out the New publications for the rhythm section of tomorrow.

There are tracks and sheet music for

Drummers -  Bass players - Guitarists

Each title comes complete with notated score and digitally mastered audio track, plus versions with and without your chosen instrument.

As well as continuing to perform both nationally and internationally I am also principal drum kit tutor at Huddersfield University and a lecturer in Popular music, focusing on ensemble playing and band studies.
