“I started with Beat Factor Music in 2009 and finished in 2018. Over the course of those years I learnt so much about my instrument, having Rod as a teacher and mentor I learnt so much about drumming and I wouldn’t be the drummer I am now if it wasn’t for Rod” – James Marshall
“Rod is a great music teacher and has so much patience when teaching me how to play drums. He had a great teaching method which incorporated a good balance of both Theory and Practical time during the lessons. His calm and step by step teaching approach was fantastic in helping you to build up confidence behind the kit”. Adam Burruto
We hope to have our Drum group classes outdoors from 23 November, and our one-to one classes in Drum-kit, bass and guitar soon afterwards, once some of the restrictions have been lifted.
