With over 20 years teaching experience and having been taught by some of the leading drum educators in the world I am proud to be able to offer drum lessons to all ages and abilities in Aberdeen in a purpose built music school. As well as teaching around schools in Aberdeen I offer my wealth of teaching knowledge and playing experience to students here at McBain Music School. Having performed, toured, and recorded throughout the country I have helped students of all ages and abilities progress on the drums. Whether you want to go through graded exams, get help with school exams, or just learn for fun then I help you achieve your goals.
McBain Music School provides professional drum lessons in an enviroment that gives each student the chance to progress and achieve their musical goals in the most effective way.
There is so much material out there it can be confusing for students to know what to study and how to utilise learning resources in a way that will progress their playing skills.
