private drum lessons.
Hello and welcome! I've been playing drums for over 20 years and have a deep level of skills and knowledge to show you. I'm based in Weybridge, Surrey and can travel to you, so you can learn from the comfort of your own home.
For the most effective learning experience, I'll bring my own, small drum kit which sets up in 5 minutes and means we can be on separate kits. I offer either 30, 45 or 60 min lessons and you can check my prices here.
Feel free to get in touch and we can discuss a teaching plan that suits you.

Hear from my happy students.
Yann has been my teacher for years and I couldn't say enough good things about him. He has a way of drawing out the best of me and gets me doing things I never thought I could.
Thanks Yann for being an awesome teacher and mentor. I've grown so much as a drummer since working with you and as you say 'it never ends, it just gets more fun.'
I always look forward to lessons with Yann. He creates a light atmosphere where I can easily express myself without feeling self conscious. It's never a dull moment when you put Yann and drums in the same room.
