One of the most exciting gifts I ever received as a child was music. Whether this was in the form of a record or a music lesson from my father, it always had me excited and made my Christmas or birthday.
This year I have put together some gift packages to help the budding drummer in you life get serious about the instrument. Whether he or she is a beginner or advanced player, I will be there to help out. Lessons can take place at my Home studio in Finedon or in Kettering depending on your location.
I have listed some gift options for you to consider below:

One Hour Lesson Voucher, 1 Pair of Vicfirth Sticks, Practice Pad, Stick Control £95
This package will get you started without the purchase of a drum kit. As a kid, I would start playing patterns on anything around the house. Having a pad changed the way I thought about playing and gave me a chance to sit with my father and enjoy time together working on music. Included in this package is a pair of 5A Vicfirth Sticks, Vicfirth 6″ Pad, A copy of Stick Control and a one hour lesson voucher.
A few words about stick control
George Lawrence Stone’s Stick Control is the original classic, often called the bible of drumming. In 1993, Modern Drummer magazine named it first in the top 25 drumming books of all-time. In the words of the author, this is the ideal book for improving “control, speed, flexibility, touch, rhythm, lightness, delicacy, power, endurance, preciseness of execution, and muscular coordination,” with extra attention given to the development of the weak hand. This indispensable book for drummers of all types includes hundreds of basic to advanced rhythms and moves through categories of single-beat combinations, triplets, short roll combinations, flam beats, flam triplets and dotted notes, and short roll progressions.
If you purchase this package, I will work through this book giving you a insight to how it can make you more musical around the drum kit. Hand technique can help you produce idea’s even if you are a beginner.
One hour Voucher, 1 pair of Sticks, 6″ Practice pad £85
