About Jamie

Hello, I'm Jamie, a professional drummer based in Kent with my own studio. I specialise in hard, heavy and occasionally very fast playing and have a range of experience working in professional studios with various bands. Before I got into the rock and metal scene I played jazz for two years in a band that toured the Isle of Wight. I then played metal for a few years and now typically play a lot more jazz, funk and pop as a freelance musician. I love teaching a variety of genres and styles and am more than happy to teach any particular song or beat you might like to learn or work on any specific area of your choosing, be it stamina, footwork or finger technique, for example.

Professionally, I've released an EP with Novacaine Nothing (Noughts & Crosses, 2015), a single with technical-metal band proxxy (Pathological Pursuits, 2018). I also recorded drums for rock band Night Thieves’ debut EP (Battle Cry, 2020). I've also tracked drums for the immensely talented band Immortal Machinery for half of their prestigious album Lieder ohne Worte (Songs Without Words, 2020) and have toured with them extensively throughout Europe. Most recently I wrote and tracked drums with the singer/songwriter Guy Prall (release TBA). You can find plenty of my work on YouTube, Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp... all the usual places.

Alongside my freelance work I'm currently the house drummer for the popular monthly jazz and funk jam night in High Wycombe known as Catch-22 Jams.

AVAILABILITY
All day and evening most days – subject to availability because I gig and record! Please contact me and we can arrange something :)
Most students book weekly or fortnightly sessions but I’m happy to arrange as per your needs.
I play, teach and record in my own professional studio near Tenterden, nine miles from Ashford. And of course I offer virtual lessons too.

EXPERIENCE
I have successfully taught drums privately since 2018 and am happy to provide references. I teach children and adults alike and am Enhanced DBS Verified. My years of experience working professionally as a musician means my lessons extend beyond just playing the instrument and into other important topics such as tuning, recording, rehearsing and writing.

My approach is very practical and personal: what do YOU want to learn? What is it that YOU are trying to achieve? What works best for YOU? I like to get stuck in early on – theory is important, but my immediate focus is on actually playing the drums. That is, after all, why you’re here!

My son was 14 when he started as a complete novice with Jamie. I couldn't have wished for a more patient and inspiring teacher than him. Over the years Jamie has taught my son the skill and passion needed to secure a place at university to study drumming and the confidence to play in his own band. I do not hesitate in recommending him as a tutor

My son (12yrs) had regular drumming lessons with Jamie over a period of at least 8months which my son loved and developed his skills well. Jamie’s style and passion was evident in his teaching and he even helped us set up a drum kit when we got one

I really enjoy learning drums with Jamie, his passion for music and drumming in particular really shines through, he's happy to tailor a curriculum to adapt to what I'd like to learn, he picks up on things like issues with technique that you couldn't possibly get without a teacher in the room with you, and his lessons are great value for money.
