I have been Drum Teacher since 1988 and have maintained my teaching practice whilst playing professionally in rock, pop, and jazz bands; playing music theatre as a pit musician; doing recording sessions; and writing and recording soundtracks.

I believe my vast experience in a broad range of musical styles has ideally positioned me as a drum  teacher. I place a large emphasis on reading and understanding of music as this knowledge provides a strong foundation on which to build a student’s ability. Reading can open many doors in the future for students that they may not have considered. It also enables students to communicate more effectively in band situations of any genre.

My typical lessons all start with basic rudiments and then progress to playing of basic rock/pop grooves with fills. I do not work from any one particular method book but draw on my vast library to tailor the lessons to the individual student. I also have an extensive collection of my own transcriptions of popular (and obscure) songs from the 1960’s up to the latest chart toppers.

2020 marks my 45th year of playing and also the integration of electronics into the teaching syllabus. This is in the form of Roland pads and pedals and the SPD S sampling pad. This is designed to give students the edge when branching out into the professional world of sessions, recording, and live performance.


Overall I like to believe my lessons are fun and informative and ultimately tailored to suit each individual student’s needs.

(or what my students say about me)
  • Friday afternoons at 6pm til 6.30pm was the time of the week I looked forward to most as a teenager because it meant one thing; my weekly drum lesson. Jeremy was my teacher for several years, and kept me excited and motivated to practice, learn and develop my skills as a drummer. Great drummer, great teacher, great friend

  • I had a number of years of great teaching from Jeremy, both on bodhrán and drums. I found him to be approachable, fun, and most importantly an excellent mentor and master of his craft.
  • I was tutored by Jeremy for six years before I moved to study interstate. Throughout that period of time I never stopped learning. He always had new material to play, new exercises to practice, and was open to learning repertoire I was interested in or that would help with my music commitments outside of the tuition time. Jeremy is a humble and friendly man whom I am very happy to have had as a tutor for all things drumming.
