Hi, I’m Nick, a professional drummer based in London, UK.
Playing drums is the best thing in the world, and whether it’s recording for artists, or teaching people how to play, I’m grateful to have the opportunity to make a living out it.
As a session drummer I’ve toured the UK and Europe, playing from small venues to big festivals. However, my focus is recording drums for artists all over the world, be it from my London studio, or working in world-renowned studios such as Abbey Road, A.I.R Studios and others.
Similarly, I’m an experienced drum teacher and passionate about helping drummers achieve their goals. Published by Hudson Music, Modern Drummer, and Drummer magazines, I also constantly add new educational content on my blog, YouTube channel, and Instagram profile.
