Instruments: Drums, Guitar


Personal Message

Passing on my passion and enthusiasm for drums is fundamental to my teaching. I believe having a teacher who is current, passionate and encouraging is a recipe for success.

All of my lessons are tailor-made to each individual to make sure each student takes all they possibly could from that particular lesson in order to reach their full potential. I believe dedication is key to learning any instrument but above all, it is about having fun.


"I booked Max onto the drumming lessons with Chris, as when listening to music, Max would always pretend to play the drums. Max has a habit of going through phases with his hobbies, but he has stuck with the drum lessons and is keen to progress. The lesson times are great, and Chris always replies to text messages with any questions I have about the lessons in a timely manner. Setting up and enrolling him was really simple too. Chris has a great passion and enthusiasm for music which has rubbed off on Max. In summary, easy setup, great communication, great teacher, easy direct debit payment, and would definitely recommend to any parent wanting their child to learn a musical instrument" - Martyn Holt

"Adam loves his drum lessons at Werrington. Chris is a great teacher and Adam recently took his Grade 2 exam and achieved a distinction, all this after only one year's tuition. The lessons during school time are so convenient and the monthly payments make them easier to afford. Thank you for giving us this much wanted service" - Loraine Kirk

"Chris is an excellent drum teacher who encourages and inspires my son. We are very pleased with the progress he has made in such a short space of time. Chris offers a professional service, is great with communications, very fair and provides an excellent and informative report on all aspects of progress that we are very impressed by" - Fiona Kutschera

"For anyone considering drum lessons, I would thoroughly recommend Chris. My son really looks forward to his tuition each week and is making great progress. He makes lessons fun and is also a font of knowledge, when queried, for us non-drumming parents!" - Cat Geary
