As a professional musician, I have been teaching drumming for over 15 years. And have taught many students from the ages of 6 plus. I cover the basics of drumming and build from there. Students reach goals not just quicker but also have more understanding. This helps them to become creative in their own right and expand on subjects covered in lessons.
I have over 50 private lessons running over mainly evenings and weekends. I also teach in schools during the day. The lessons I provide covers the students needs. I have acted as an assesor for my students helping them to receive their Bronze, Silver and Gold DofE awards.

“John is an incredibly effective drum teacher who knows how to get the best out of his students. In the ten years I attended JPF drum tuition, John helped me gain a strong technical foundation, which allowed me to progress quickly and be able to deal with any situation thrown at me. He is also proficient in many different genres of music, from Latin to Rock and doesn't only teach you how to play a beat but also teaches the subtle nuances that make the beat authentic. John always knows which approach to use to motivate his students and the results speak for themselves.” - Evangelo
"I have been playing drums for 30 years and have been going to John for some time now. He is an amazing teacher who gave me confidence to carry on and taught me things I did not even know about. He is an inspiration and now I play in a blues band. As well as being my mentor he is a good friend, and anyone wanting to learn could not find a better tutor" - Alan
