He is persistently looking to improve my knowledge and skill within drumming whilst being a great, positive guy. I would recommend him to anyone looking to start or continue learning how to drum." - Izaac

Teaching Bio:

Hi, my name is Steve and I am a professional drum teacher based here in Bristol helping students of all ages and abilities develop their drumming ability. I am extremely passionate about music, having played piano from the age of 5, drums from age 9, guitar from age 14 and bass guitar from age 19. I began gigging as a drummer around the age of 15, and was hooked straight away! I knew then all I wanted to do was play and teach drums professionally, which I've been doing now for the last 10 years.

  • Many teachers start with a year of marching drum patterns on the snare drum alone – I guarantee you will be playing a full drum beat and drum roll round the kit by the end of your 1st lesson!
  • Beginners to advanced all catered for.
  • Have worked with children as young as 4 as well as retired adults!
  • Parents welcome to sit in on 1st lesson
  • Learn on proper acoustic drums, not electric kits as many teachers use!
  • Grades or no grades – your choice!
  • Musician’s Union registered, fully insured

I also teach all abilities so whether you are new to drums and keen to have a go or experienced in the field of percussion and wanting to improve technique or versatility, I can help you to reach your full drumming potentical. My lessons are friendly and engaging, helping my pupils to learn at their own pace - to book your first lesson or simply find out more about my drum tuition in Bristol don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing me at info@drumlessonsbristol.com.

Testimonials:

"Having never hit a drum before in my life, I found Steve's approach to teaching really easy to follow. After only a few lessons he had me reading the music and playing around the whole drum kit. After every lesson you feel like you have achieved something new. He also has the patience of a saint so it doesn't matter how many times you need him to go over something, It's not a problem. I would have no problem recommending him to anyone who wants to learn the drums." - Russ

"Steve has always pushed Shaughan to achieve his best. He has been with Steve nearly 3 years now and still thoroughly enjoys it." - Parent of Pupil (aged 11)

"My son began his drum kit coaching with Steve four years ago. He is a enthusiastic coach with fantastic rapport with my son. He has progressively taken him through Rock School Drum kit exams with excellent results, and is this year preparing him for Grade 6 Drum Kit exams. Under Steve's guidance my son won his school's Battle of the Bands Music competition. I have no reservations in recommending his enthusiastic style of teaching. He has been flexible in accommodating us through our varied schedules." - Parent of Pupil (aged 13)

Joe has been teaching my son drums for over six months now, he is very easy going and works my sons pace. Joe's love of teaching is certainly contagious and this shows in heaps as my son comes out of each lesson saying 'That was awesome!' and you can't get better than that! - Sally Stevens
