Mark has been teaching my son for the past 3 years, and I have only great things to say. Mark’s approach has allowed him to not only improve technically, but to also enjoy drumming more as he learns. It has resulted in him getting an offer for an arts college based on his drumming ability.

I have worked alongside Mark at several Northamptonshire schools for quite a few years. I'm a guitar teacher and myself and Mark have done a lot of assemblies together over the years and the one thing I have noticed is that all of Marks students are very confident and perform extremely well at whatever level they are studying at. I have also noticed that Mark has a lot of patience and just a great teaching style. He also has a lot of higher-level students and can cater to any drummer from beginner to post grade 8 diploma level. Mark also works as an Examiner and Travels the world Examining music students of different musical disciplines and needs a multifaceted knowledge of music. I would say if you are interested in learning from an excellent drum teacher and all nice guy give Mark a call, you won't be disappointed.

Although I haven’t been there before because I’m not local and its too far from me. But I do believe Mark could do well along with his school and his students. Guaranteed!!! He has been adjudicating in a local competition in Malaysia here for many years. He is great! -Jesse (from Malaysia) 🇲🇾
