“John is a fantastic teacher, he makes my 11 year old very comfortable want to play more and John knows his theory too , my son can now basically read music!!! – I personally play guitar and teach and wanted to make sure my son was in good hands and he certainly is, this guy has a passion and a skill for teaching!” – Ste Cross

You will learn drumming techniques that include rock rhythms, fills, sight-reading, rudiments, improvisation, grades and stylistic studies. You’ll soon be drumming along to your favourite music.

“We can highly recommend John’s patient and enthusiastic tuition. Our daughter always enjoyed her lessons. Using contemporary hits and classic tracks John gave her a music education that went beyond learning basic drum techniques.We would often find her rifling through our record collection, recognising songs and playing along to some of our favourites. John always kept us up to date with her progress and provided regular newsletters and was always available to speak to in person or by email.”  Tracey Toddhunter

Lessons are taught on real acoustic drum kits and on a one-to-one basis only. Beware of music schools who teach drums in groups: We have heard many stories about students being plugged into headphones and forgotten about during group drum lessons. At Northwich Drum Studio, your drum lessons are about you and your drumming!

“My son has lessons with John Wallace and loves it! He’s a great teacher and having made the choice not to go in for formal (graded) exams means he’s kept his interest for over 2 years. John has even been well placed to help him prepare for his GCSE Music pieces which has been invaluable”  Sophie Jackson
