I am a passionate and dedicated freelance musician who brings a high level of professionalism and expertise to my work as a drummer and drum tutor.

Originally from Edinburgh, I attended the City of Edinburgh Music School before moving to London where I studied for a BMus in Contemporary Music Performance at the London Centre for Contemporary Music, graduating with a 2:1.

While living in London, I regularly played with different bands on the pub and function circuit, developing expertise in a wide variety of playing styles and developing my skills as a backing vocalist and arranger.

I also gained experience as a drum tutor, teaching children of different ages and abilities in a school setting.

I moved to Bristol in late 2016 and am enjoying working with some of the amazingly gifted musicians that live here. I formed my own Bristol-based band, The Dirty Power Band and also established a weekly jam night at the Llandoger Trow. I also continue with some of my London-based musical commitments.

I have also started teaching here in Bristol and would love to hear from you if you would like a free trial lesson. Find out more about my lessons
