Russ is an accomplished drummer, with a wealth of experience which he brings to his teaching. Patient, focused and enthusiastic he has taught our son Angus for over 6 years. From technique and discipline to the sheer joy of playing music, Russ is not only a great teacher but has become a great role model to Angus. Highly recommended!!!

My son has been having lessons for a couple of years now. Russ’ patience and encouragement have seen my sons love of drumming increase rapidly. Can not recommend enough.

Helen Honeybee

I’ve been playing drums for (ahem) a few years but wanted to explore some new ideas and have a closer look at technique.
I was a bit apprehensive about taking lessons at first, mainly because I have been playing for years and felt it was maybe ‘too late’ to study but I needn’t have worried.
Russ is a very friendly guy and works from a great little studio. He listened to what I wanted from him as a teacher and helped identify and correct my bad habits and help to develop my technique.
I would highly recommend Drumheadz, wether you’re a beginner or an old dog trying to learn new tricks!

Gary Smith

I’ve been having lessons for a while and it’s been brilliant! Russ is always willing to let me learn the styles I’m interested in and we’ve gone from punk, to 60s music to pop! I’ve really grown in confidence and would definitely recommend these lessons no matter what your level!

My 10 years old started taking lessons about 2 years ago. Russ is great with him, very motivating and has an incredible knowledge of drumming. I would highly recommend his lessons to anyone at any age.
