I offer private drum tuition on a one-to-one basis in Walton-On-Thames, Surrey, UK.


Lessons take place in a sound proof room which is free from outside noise. The teaching room is acoustically treated and is equipped with a professional level Yamaha drum kit, Mackie P.A system and a large mirror which allows me to monitor the students technique/posture while still communicating with them. The drum kit is kept well maintained with drum heads replaced regularly.

  1. Hey there

    I’ve recently moved to the area, live on the seven hills road, and looking for drum lessons. Ideally Tuesday day time but can do also do Tuesday evening and day times Tueday Wednesday Thursday.

  2. I used to come down about 4/5 years ago and I was too young to learn properly.I am interested in starting up again now that I’m ready to be taught and use it at school. I was wondering if you free taster lessons as I’m still not 100%

  3. Hi Dave,
    I was given your name by Kelly, Frankie and Alfie’s mum.
    I am assuming I have the right Dave as I can’t open the contact
    she texted me so found your website.
    My daughter Millie is a friend of Frankie’s and she would like
    to have a couple of lessons to try out playing drums.
    She plays piano and was about to start working towards grade 4 but has decided she doesn’t want to do that anymore. I would love her to have some lessons to try it out and go from there. We live in Wimbledon but I am happy to obviously come to you. My mob no is 07740 619440. Many thanks Sam Wyatt (millie’s mum)

  4. Hello David,

    I have a four year old daughter who has shown some interest in drumming. I would like to sign her up for some lessons to see if I can nurture the interest. Please could you get back to me in your availability and if you could give her some tuition.

    Thank you.
