I teach a wide range of different people from all walks of life.

Below are a few of the comments that I have received:


“I’ve had lessons with Stuart for many years. He’s brought drums alive for me with relaxed yet challenging lessons. We take a flexible approach of working on a wide variety of styles and techniques depending on what we want to do any given day. A lovely guy who makes you feel you are achieving and progressing.” Keith (Headmaster)

“Stuart worked as a peripatetic drum tutor for many years within the department where I was Director of Music. He is completely professional and reliable and was a valuable member of our team. His lessons were always well planned and expertly delivered. Most importantly he builds good relationships with his pupils, with very obvious mutual respect. Stuart is extremely talented and combines his lessons with ambitious, yet attainable, targets and a sense of fun. All the pupils he taught made excellent progress and loved their lessons with him. I would highly commend him as a teacher….lucky pupils who get the chance to be taught by Stuart!” Emma (Director of Music)

“Stuart is not only a very proficient drummer (which of course you would expect in a drum tutor) but – equally important – is an excellent teacher. He will frequently use different teaching techniques, adapting to the situation. He is also very empathetic to the needs of the pupil.” Malcolm (IBM professional)

Stu is an incredibly talented and extremely professional Drum Tutor, the best in Norwich by far!! He’s been instructing me for several years now, and I can honestly say that he has continued to push and develop me more than I’d have imagined. And to add to that, he’s one of the nicest blokes you’ll ever meet, he’s awesome and will really help you whatever age or ability level!!” Dave (Cross fit Coach and Gym Owner)

“Stuart has been great teaching my son drums. We’re working on drum grades and he keeps it really fun which to me is the most important part of playing an instrument, enjoying it! Thanks Stuart.” Kieran (Sound engineer and Parent)

“Fantastic tuition. Great for working through the grades or just enjoying drumming and/or percussion. Highly recommend for fun and enjoyable lessons.” Diana (Parent)

“Been a student of Stuart for many years. He always makes the lessons interesting and enjoyable. Mixes different approaches to teaching so sessions are really varied and mixed. Not phased at all when I come in and say I heard X on the radio, can we work out how to play it? Then builds a lesson around it on the spot. In his own right he is an awesome drummer and a top bloke.” Jeremy (IT Professional)

“Stuart teaches drums to two of my children. They both love their lessons with him and are progressing brilliantly.” Davina (Parent)

“Both of our children really enjoy their lessons with Stuart and are progressing well. Lessons are fun and our children are enthusiastic about both lessons and home practice.” Carlotta (Parent)

“Two of my children, both girls, have loved their lessons with Stuart.  A patient, enthusiastic and kind teacher.”  Rhona Long (parent)
