  • Percussion
  • Brazilian Percussion (Surdo, Tamborim, Pandeiro, Reco Reco, Ago Go Bells)

I have built up vast resources over my many years of playing and teaching. I like to help drummers/percussionist to develop their chosen style of music and enable them to experience other styles of playing if they are interested as I believe versatility is important for any style of player. I have taught many students over the years, some of my pupils past & present include:

  • Arya Goggin - Skindred
