Testimonials

  • "I would have no hesitation in recommending Terry as a drum tutor. In just over 5 years Terry has tutored me from a complete novice to a grade 8 drummer. His lessons provide a good balance of technique and performance skills across a wide variety of genres. His patient approach helps when difficulties in techniques or pieces occur. Terry’s lessons are well structured and always provide a piece of revision material after the lesson. A first class tutor!" Josh, East Lothian, Scotland

  • "Pleased to let you know AB got a merit in his grade 8. He got 82 just 3 marks off a distinction. Thanks again for getting him this far in such a short time!!"
    JB, Moffat, Scotland

  • "Terry tailored the lessons specifically for me to target areas where I would see an immediate improvement. The band now say that they can tell when I've been for a lesson because my playing is significantly more imaginative and exciting."
