Fantastic news about Rochdale!!

Voltalab Studios is the new location for lessons. The venue is absolutely perfect and the people are wonderful. There is a wonderful Yamaha kit too.

I'm seriously happy about this, I hope that you are too!

Rochdale update. The venue I was using in Whitworth is in the middle of a huge refurbishment. I can come to you if you'd like me to but it looks like I'll have a venue by the end of the month

Rick has been teaching my son for almost two years now and the progress he has made has been incredible. Rick is an accomplished drummer and teacher. His lessons are always engaging, purposeful and most importantly fun! My son has a passion for drumming because of Rick and loves coming to his lessons. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone who is thinking of learning the drums.

My step son is sixteen and has been coming to Rick for tuition for about seven months now and we couldn't be happier with the lessons. Rick is very knowledgeable about the subject and has the experiences and talent to really help a student to thrive musically. Rick is incredibly friendly and creates a calm, positive atmosphere for the session where my step son feels secure, at ease and can confidently be himself. The music is selected to compliment my step sons ability, yet also challenges him to push himself. The music varies each week in style and age so every session is fun, different and interesting. Rick has always gone above and beyond our expectations and each week sends extra practice home so that he has the option to develop outside of the lessons.

Rick is an excellent (dude), musician, teacher and mentor, he is patient, good humored and has a flexible, easy going approach. He can adapt his teaching style to different ways of learning to suit the student and I would highly recommend him to anyone of any age wanting to learn this most challenging and exciting of instruments! Thanks Rick for your shared passion for music, your patience and dedication! (brother of the stick :)

Fun Drum lessons

I’m an experienced international festival standard drummer, having played in California, Chicago, New Orleans, France, Sweden, Denmark, Portugal and Spain, as well as at some of the biggest UK Blues and Tribute Festivals. 

I work as a freelance session drummer with international acts visiting the UK.   When we aren’t in lockdown, I tour with The Lol Goodman band all over the UK at prestigious Clubs and Festivals. I also gig with Jessica and the Ragged Company, who play Country and Americana. We play at major Country festivals across the UK and at the clubs on that circuit.   

 I’d really like to share the things I have learned over 42 years of gigging.
