Teaching
I offer a flexible teaching approach which is centred around the needs of the student. Having taught in a wide variety of establishments over the past 15 years I have a developed a focused and motivating lesson delivery which allows students to reach their full potential.
I have guided many students through the 'Trinity/Guildhall' examination series and also the 'Rockschool' drum kit examinations. Although I value the worth of these examinations gaining grade 8 in any of the above does not automatically mean you are a good player! Through study of exams however it is possible to learn some of the disciplines necessary to become a successful musician and drummer.
Reading, playing to a click, knowledge of rhythms and styles are areas which can be developed through focused study of this material.
My approach to teaching allows the student to transfer techniques learnt into any style of music. From Jazz cymbal time to heavy rock the student must learn the foundations of drumming in order to approach different genres. 'Knowing' the music is also an essential part of being able to play different styles of music and understanding the footprints of what makes that particular style of music 'tick' is knowledge the modern session/gigging drummer must possess.

Most of my teaching is centred around the Chester area.

Please contact me for further details.

About Me

I am a professional drummer based in the North West. I undertake playing work of any nature from recording sessions in any style to shows in front of large audiences. I have a solid yet subtle playing style and my forte is within the style of Funk and Jazz where my main influence has been 'Tower of Power's' - David Garibaldi.
Chris has the ability to groove within any rhythm section ....
