Dean’s love of learning and teaching is very apparent and this shows in the rapport that he and Cam have developed. Dean helps Cam understand the ‘why’ as well as the ‘how’ of drumming and this provides a great platform for future development.
Dean encourages Cam to transcribe scores and to compose his own cores. Each of these skills builds a deeper understanding of drumming, beyond just learning to play scores. Dean’s lessons are always fun and a highlight of Cam’s week.”

“We placed 1st in drumming at two competitions over the weekend and 2nd at a very big one in North Berwick, beating the current Scottish, European, and British champions. Couldn’t have done it without you Dean!”

“I recommend Dean as a drumming tutor without hesitation and think very highly of him. He is dedicated, professional, extremely patient and always encouraging. Dean is determined to ensure that his students are taught correctly and are never rushed until he is a happy that they are ready to play in a band.
His method of teaching always amazes me. If one is experiencing some form of difficulty with playing a score Dean writes an exercise which assists in overcoming that difficulty.”
– Janine Collard, DrummingMad student since 2014
