About

Ian is personally recommended as a drum tutor by the legendary Steve White, drummer for Paul Weller, Style Council and The Family Silver. He studied with the country's premier teacher, Bob Armstrong and has been hugely influenced by the legendary Dave Weckl, teaching his methods for more than thirty years. His live playing experience has ranged from many years in studio sessions, touring bands, theatres, clinics and a host of venues including the London Borough O2's, the famous Cavern in Liverpool, York Opera House and many more. Based in Ampthill, Bedfordshire, he now focuses on teaching and clinics, following his passion for helping other drummers progress and succeed.
