My name is Andy Franklin and I offer pupil- driven and dynamic lessons in my purpose built studio in Chelmsford. Whether you’re new to the drums or you’re looking to improve your technique- you can gain professional tuition that is rooted in over 30 years of experience. ALF Studios is dedicated to you achieving through quality teaching, that is why pupils have accomplished distinctions at various grade levels in a fun environment.
I've been playing for around 14 years and having lessons on and off with Andy for around 8 now. He's a great bloke and really cares about your progression.
Thanks to him I have recently passed my grade 4 with distinction and now working on my grade 6 which he's helping a lot with!
Would recommend Andy to anyone who wants to start drumming or just want to improve their technique. Liam Mabbatt student (Now Grade 7 student)
At 44 years old I finally picked up some sticks and had my first lesson with Andy. His enthusiasm and passion shine through when he teaches and he is very patient and makes what appear to be small suggestions about how you play that make a big difference to how you move round the drum kit. Great teacher and I thoroughly recommend having lessons with him.....It's never too late to start drumming . Chris Skinner student
Andy is a fantastic teacher with the loveliest temperament and manner for teaching my rather fidgety little drummer boy! He always knows how to steer the lesson and keep Freddie entertained and engaged throughout. Freddie has just passed his Debut drums exam with a high merit and it’s all credit to Andy. I can’t recommend him highly enough! Sarah Lindsey ( Now Grade 1 Student)
Great lessons! I'm a drummer of 15 years mostly self-taught experience and Andy is really helping me develop even further! :)
