Welcome to my site!
If you are interested in learning the drums as a beginner or looking to compliment and develop your existing skills then JR Drumming Tuition can meet your needs. I offer tailored drumming lessons for all levels of ability and top class facilities to support your progress.
The drums are a hugely rewarding instrument to play and study - if you have a passion to be a drummer then I want to help you to achieve your goal!
I am based in Milton Keynes and have 30 years of drumming experience that covers a broad spectrum of live, recording, radio and television situations.
I am also qualified with a degree in music performance for drums and am an active professional drummer who thoroughly enjoys playing different styles of music.
I am part of the alternative pop band The Hallows who have just released their debut album "Of Time and Tides"
We are looking forward to releasing our third single and touring later this year.
We are also very excited to be working with RGS Music who have taken on management duties for the band, it is great to be working with such a driven and professional team!

Here is a little information about the album:
We have been lucky enough to work with the mad genius that is Seb Pecchia - his studio near Bath has recorded many successful artists including:
Rodrigo Y Gabriella, Robert Plant, Bassment Jaxx, Anthony Head, Jimmy Copley, Jeff Beck, Goldfrapp, Pino Palledino, Baby Shambles, Tom Dalgetti, Charlie Jones, Micky Moody, Mick Rogers, Ian Jennings, The Proclaimers, Simple Minds, The Heavy and many more.
This project has spanned many years in terms of song-writing and it has been really exciting to hear everything take shape throughout the recording process.
Please visit our website - www.thehallows.uk - where you can sign up to our mailing list and to be the first to know when other recordings and videos are available!
Education & Other Projects
I studied at Drumtech in London for my degree in music performance and was fortunate to study under the likes of Pete Cater, Tom Meadows (Girls Aloud, Duffy, Kylie Minogue), Paul Elliott, Justin Scott and Nick Twyman.
I have worked with Stantonbury Campus as a music practitioner and have given support to year 10 and 11 BTEC music students in live performance and arranging - this job has been hugely rewarding and has given me the opportunity to coach young musicians of varying ability and experience.
I have worked with Ronan Keating promoting his album "Songs For My Mother" which went to number 1 in the UK charts.
I have also toured with Hafdis Huld promoting her number 1 album "Synchronised Swimmers" in Iceland - you can see some of these performances on my music & media page.
I have been part of many original music projects over the years,and was involved in the recording of the album "Wide Of The Mark" with The Pressure Room. Check out some of the recordings on my Music & Media page. I am excited to say that I am in the process of recording with a brand new band and hope to have some additional material to add to this page in the very near future, so please visit again for future updates!
Odery have been kind enough to provide a brand new kit to the studio for use by my students. Odery are a Brazilian drum manufacturer that specialise in top quality custom drums as well as offering awesome entry level equipment. Please check out their wonderful selection of drums by clicking on this link: Odery Drums Recently I have been involved in supporting the charity "Show Racism The Red Card" and have composed music in conjunction with Sarah Croft that will be used for educational and promotional activities - I am proud to be involved with an organisation that has the aim of eliminating racism in sport and in wider society.
