“If you do what you always did, you’ll get what you always got.”
– Henry Ford
Here you’ll find information on all of the work I do, from my drum lessons, education initiatives and publications, to working as a session drummer from my recording studio in Acton, London (UK). At the core of it, I really enjoy helping drummers develop as players and collaborating with artists in realising their songs or projects.
So with regards to education, I write articles published by Modern Drummer (US), Drummer (UK), and on my blog. In addition to this, I have also written a book called Concepts, which is published by Hudson Music in Europe, and produce online drum lessons on YouTube to support it.
When it comes to sessions, I like to work closely with artists to nail the sound and feel they’re after in order to foster good and long-term working relationships. It’s a lot of fun, and very fulfilling work!
Be it teaching, or working on a session, students and artists alike benefit from my many years of experience, having toured across the UK and Europe, worked with and recorded for many artists and producers in well-known studios including Abbey Road, AIR studios, Eve Studios, 123 Productions to name a few.
Furthermore, and well done if you’re still reading this, I have a bit of an entrepreneurial streak in me, and so occasionally I like to bring my ideas into fruition. For instance, in 2014 I developed and launched the world’s first pillowcase practice pad CHOPZzz™, a well-received product which has sold worldwide. And finally, given that I play multiple instruments, I also compose and produce my own music and videos for fun as well as commercial purposes.
I hope you find what you’re after here, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
