Drum Kit / Piano / Music Theory
I graduated in 2019 from the University of Aberdeen with a first class honours in music education and also recieved the 3rd year and 4th year prizes for both music performance and music education. I am now currently studying a masters in jazz performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with drum kit as my first study. I have also been playing classical piano now for 12 years, and have taught piano for 5 years, as well as playing percussion (marimba, snare and multi set ups) whilst at Aberdeen University.
I have played with a variety of bands with jazz currently being my main focus. I have played part of jazz orchestras, Latin bands, fusion and small jazz quartets, ceilidh band, concert band, rock bands and musical theatre companies.
I am offering lessons in drum kit at any level and in any style at any age. If you would prefer to do exams i.e rock school/trinity/school exams, I am also happy to work through them.
Piano Lessons, I offer ABRSM grades but I am also happy to do anything else.

I am also PVG registered.
PARENT OF EX-STUDENTS
My boys really enjoyed learning piano with Richard. Richard has been very patient and worked alongside two boisterous boys encouraging their piano skills. With my eldest Richard encouraged and developed a love of music, so that my eldest would go off and learn popular songs as well learn to compose his own tunes. As a result of Richard’s tuition my eldest is now studying piano as his first instrument and is attending ACMS full time. It was great to have Richard as an instructor who was flexible, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and clearly passionate about music. I would recommend Richard to others for tuition.
