Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach complete beginners?

Of course, I have taken many students from scratch right through to comfortably playing with bands or just to their favourite tunes at home!

Do you teach children?

Yes, from the age of 8. Music, Drums especially, can be very therapeutic for youngsters and great way to express themselves. I set homework so there is always something to practice ready for the next lesson and that goes for you adults too!

Where are you based?

I teach all my drum lessons in Bristol at Music A.P.E. Studios, Unit 16c, Merton Road, Bristol, BS7 8TL. Boasting fantastic drumming equipment Music A.P.E is a great studio conveniently situated just off the busy Gloucester Road. Click on the map below to find me. The studio is fully equipped with both acoustic and electronic drum kits.

Bristol Drum Teacher
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
