Gareth Batson



Gareth started drumming at age 8 on his fathers kit and soon found he had a passion for music and rhythm. This resulted in him playing in numerous school bands & theatre productions. Upon leaving school and through many casual jobs, his constant love of music and drumming continued. Because of this, at 23, he decided to make it his full time profession. This was to lead to a 15 year career of studio sessions, touring, gigs & tutoring having played with/for/supported the following: Simply Red, Feeder, Lisa Stansfield, Republica, Aztec Camera, Vex Red, Ross Robinson (producer Slipknot, Korn) Mark Waterman ( producer Elastica, Swervedriver), The Family Cat, Jack Adapter & Last Man Standing (amongst others) along with many other casual gigs with a number of top musicians. More recently Gareth has been pursuing his other love of sport setting up a personal training business with his wife as well as becoming a cycling coach. Gareth can provide outstanding, creative and professional drum tuition from beginner to expert.
