Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My teaching style is very flexible & hands on. My goal is to make beautiful music and I do this by taking technical exercises and giving them musical meaning. This means I focus on the ideas of time, vocabulary & dynamic playings, but within this still teaching essential technical exercises in order to create a well-rounded musician.

Teaching since:

I have a Bachelors of Music degree for Professional Music (drum set performance & music production) from Berklee College of Music . Whilst at Berklee I studied under some of the top modern drummers including Dave Dicenso (Josh Groban, Hiromi), James Murphy (Blue Man Group) & Terri Lyne Carrington (Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Esperanza Spalding).

I am a producer & drummer with a diverse musical background ranging from traditional jazz (voted Young Scottish Jazz Musican of the Year 2012) to modern pop music. My performance experience spans internationally performing on stages in USA, Finland, UK, France & Estonia. As well as performing I'm also skilled in using Ableton & Pro Tools to both produce music and use these DAW's as live performance tool's.

Initially, my son didn't want to change drum teachers but we lucked out by finding Ross. Ross stepped right in and literally has taken my son to the next level of drumming seamlessly. Ross has a great balance of challenging and encouraging his students and I highly recommend him as a drum teacher.

Wow! For someone who was completely new to drums and understanding rhythm , Ross was absolutely perfect for what I needed. His attention to detail shows just how knowledgable he is of his craft, and makes hard matters easy to understand! (even a 6 year old could understand him)

His professionalism strives even through online classes, because he's so keen on making sure you understand the context.

Would HIGHLY recommend!
