Private Lessons

Ollie has been teaching pupils young and old for the past 10 years.  Pupis both past and present have become well established drummers themselves all around the world, featuring on stage, television and recordings.

Lessons are made to be fun and engaging which stimulates the pupil to want to become better.  Pupils can study all styles of drumming including rock, funk, jazz, latin and afro Cuban using both tuition books and Ollies own knowledge to create  a stimulating and varied drum lesson.   Private lessons are offered either on a one-to-one hourly or half hourly basis depending on the pupils age and ability and take place either in  Uckfield at UCTC or in Lewes. 

Lesson Information

Private lessons are offered on a one-to-one basis using top of the range equipment.  Regular slots can be arranged depending on availabilty though there is no obligation to do this. 

What do I need to bring?

If you have your own sticks - Great!  If not, dont worry there will some you can use on your first lesson.  After your first lesson you will be required to purchase a tuition book.  A memory stick can also be beneficial. 

Do I need my own drum kit?

No - At first regular practice can be achieved without the need of a drum kit.  After this time a kit or practice kit would aid development.
