Drum Lessons with Oliver Terry

Professional drum lessons / tuition for all ages in Newcastle – Sunderland – Durham – Stockton – Teesside – Yarm – North East.

“At the age of twenty two I had completed my Guildhall grade 8 under tuition from Tommy Graham and wanted to improve further on my instrument. After being accepted at the Brighton Institute of Music, I completed, and passed with merit, a Higher National Diploma in drums / music. I studied under world class player Adam Bushel who has done session work for the likes of Sheryl Crow, Faithless and Celtus. This opened so many new doors and gave me the skills and knowledge that got me where I am today. I have built up a good reputation and I now teach students in the Newcastle and Sunderland and North East area. I am also involved in session work and have played for a very successfully band called ‘The Flytes’ who have toured France, America, and the UK. We played with Gomez and The Bluetones and have sold out stage 2 of the Newcastle O2 Academy.

With the skills and experience I have gained, I have a very high pass rate for students taking Trinity Guildhall grades. This has lead to many students going on to be successful musicians and achieving good music GCSE grades, diplomas or degrees. Many of my students have even gone into full time music teaching in schools and full time work on cruise ships as drummers. This has given me a sense of achievement and I take a great deal of pride and passion in my work.
