Drum Teacher │ Sheffield
Tom has been a drum teacher with us since lessons first began here at the Sheffield studio in late 2012. He's taught hundreds of students in that time and has spent numerous hours developing his teaching space into a warm, relaxing and welcoming environment for everyone, from beginners to professionals.
He has a BA in Music Performance and a Masters in Creative Practice and is also studying a course in Music Therapy as well as aspirations to study Sound Therapy. Drums and percussion lessons don't just involve learning styles with Tom; you will also learn how to develop your own style, understand the language of rhythm, and build the confidence to speak that language in whatever styles you enjoy during your drumming lessons.
Tom has worked on tours and festivals as a performer and a drum tech, and acted as ambassador for Hull College of performing arts at the Stax Music Academy where he got to tutor and advise alongside Soul legends such as Kirk Whalum, and whilst there recorded in the legendary Sun studios that launched the Million Dollar Quartet.
Tom's teaching style is approachable, friendly, encouraging and patient, guiding students towards their goals and beyond with constant support.
