“Dillon was fortunate enough to study drums with Jack between the ages of eight and eleven, and went from being a keen student with some knowledge of the instrument and styles to achieving a high merit in his Rockschool grade 8 by the age of ten. This followed having achieved a distinction in all of his previous grades with Jack.
“As a former private music teacher myself I could see immediately that Jack had the right credentials; not only is he an excellent professional musician with a high level of experience as a drummer, percussionist and composer but also has those essential communication skills that transform a musician into a valuable educator. Jack was encouraging, friendly and supportive to Dillon, especially at those challenging times when a new technique or method was introduced and was highly methodical in his approach. Every lesson was prepared in advance and prior consideration had been given to ensuring that the lesson time was used as effectively as possible. I was impressed by Jack’s level of organisation and prior notice was always provided on those few occasions when lessons needed to be reorganised.
“Jack is a proficient and versatile teacher who is able to teach to all ages and abilities and I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a drum teacher.”
