I started lessons with Mark around three years ago, having first met him because I needed my snare tuned for a gig. I had heard from a friend that he was the man for the job. Needless to say, after our first encounter, I realized that I had a lot left to learn! I have been playing drums for over ten years, and have had lessons before, but always felt that teachers tended to dictate what I would learn. Mark is always ready to listen and encourage. He has helped me to develop my own musical interests as well as giving expert tuition and advice on all styles of drumming. Mark is an extremely talented musician and a great teacher, and I would be the first to recommend him to any drumming enthusiast looking to learn more, whether beginner or professional!
