Drums

Starting at age 14 with weekly lessons, Matt has since toured all over the UK and internationally almost every weekend in successful party/function bands as well as theatre and tribute acts. From an early age Matt showed an interest in the drums. Like many others, his first drum kit consisted of anything that made a sound, from pots and pans to the hard leather of his grandfathers armchair.

Matt has gained a wealth of real-world and practical experience with drumming in almost every situation whether that be in the studio or performing live with a band, and enjoys teaching and sharing his knowledge with aspiring drummers during his weekdays.
