Here's a video of 15-yr-okd Alfie Connolly playing a great solo at Priory School's Xmas bash musical bash at the Wedgewood Rooms.
He's been a pleasure to teach since he started 2 or 3 years ago, an exceptionally highly motivated player with a bright future ahead of him.


Rick Anderton how many hats have you created playing something like this?


To all my students, past, current, and future, have a very Merry Christmas and Rocking New Year 🎄🎁🎉
May your drumming be double paradiddlyicious in 2022 🥁

How much practising do you do?
Is this too much or is he just another fan of hot curries?

Very good 😎


Nonetheless, love your guitarist 😍


Ma-hoosive thanks to all you good people who've given a "like" to this page, it really has helped generate business at a time when I need it so much!
May I ask those of you who've enjoyed being taught by me or even those of you who've enjoyed my playing in whichever of my bands through the years to tickle the appropriate box in the "Reviews" part of the page, please?
Thank you all, once again!

My shower's too small, dammit!


Fab news!
Judging by gov't guidelines, I can now visit you to teach:
"All childcare and supervised activities are allowed indoors (as well as outdoors) for all children. Parent and child groups can take place indoors (as well as outdoors) for up to 15 people (children under 5 will not be counted in this number)".
Tickle that "message" button for all enquiries, but please be aware that you'd be well-advised to book soon if you're time-restricted as slots are already being taken-up....


Isn't it nice? 😇


No school shouldn’t mean no education…

Online drum lessons are a great way to keep kids learning through lockdown.
I have over 20 years of experience teaching in schools & colleges & can deliver high-quality one-to-one lessons at affordable rates
Give me a shout, always happy to discuss how I can help..
