Having been a self tough drummer I can honestly say that starting to take lessons with John was one of the best musical decisions I have ever made!!!!

R McKoy, Head of Music

John has a very kind and caring nature with his students, and his passion for drumming is contagious - all of his students have developed a love for playing and practising the instrument. 

Linder Winder

It's great to learn from someone who is clearly a very talented drummer, and also a patient and encouraging teacher.
