Welcome

Hello, and welcome to my website.

I am a mobile drum teacher from Guildford. I offer an innovative and convenient way of learning the drums by having lessons in the comfort of your own home, on a combination of practice pads and a virtually silent (compared to it’s big brother) electronic drum-kit, using headphones.

Most people looking for drumming lessons would normally be required to travel to a studio of some sort, which can be a bit inconvenient at times, or have their own drum-kit. With me, there is no such hassle as I provide all the equipment, expertise and patience needed to learn to play the drums.

I teach foundation to intermediate levels of drumming and cover Guildford and surrounding areas. To ensure I cover your area please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me through the contact page.

About Jason

2014 Repair To Ruin promo shoot.I have been drumming since the age of 8 and have studied music in various schools, colleges and academies. As a professional drummer for over 10 years I have developed a range of techniques and musical styles from different instructors whom I have had the great pleasure of knowing and learning from.

Growing up in the East End of London I have been brought up on a variety of different music genres including: Ska, Rock, Metal, Drum n’ Bass, Hip-Hop, Garage and Pop to name only a few. Having such an eclectic taste in music is what I believe has given me my own unique style behind the kit.

I have had the great fortune of working on some fantastic projects in my time, such as performing for The Prince’s Trust and gigging with my own band ‘Repair to Ruin’. Working alongside some great musicians can be demanding at times but it keeps me on my toes and constantly tests and improves my drumming ability.

Being a drummer is an indispensable role; you are the heartbeat of the band, keeping everyone in time and applying the groove and dynamic feel to the song. It is a role that I take great pride in doing to a high standard.
