Tuition/Education Testimonials

"WHEN I CAME TO SAM IN AROUND 2004, I WAS A 15 YEAR OLD WHO HAD PREVIOUSLY GIVEN UP LEARNING DRUMS AT SCHOOL AS I HAD LOST INTEREST.

HE IMMEDIATELY ESTABLISHED WHAT MY GOALS WERE, WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC I WANTED TO PLAY, AND CREATED TAILORED LESSONS TO SUIT ME. HE INSPIRED ME BY SHOWING ME HOW TO PLAY MUSIC FROM MY FAVOURITE BANDS LIKE LED ZEPPELIN, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE AND FOO FIGHTERS. I LEARNED HOW THE MUSIC I LOVED WAS ROOTED IN RUDIMENTS AND HOW TO LINK MUSICAL THEORY TO MUSICAL EXPRESSION AND I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL FOR THAT.

 

SINCE STUDYING WITH SAM I HAVE BEEN ON MY OWN MUSICAL JOURNEY, PLAYING IN INDIE BANDS IN SCOTLAND AND MOST RECENTLY PLAYING IN PUNK BANDS 'JAMES AND THE VAN DER BEEKS’ AND '7UPPERCUTS’ IN VIETNAM. I HAVE TOURED AROUND SOUTH-EAST ASIA AND AM STILL PLAYING MANY OF THE GROOVES I LEARNED BACK IN THE PERTH PRACTICE ROOM WITH SAM. I WOULD RECOMMEND ANY ASPIRING DRUMMER TO TAKE LESSONS FROM SAM AS HE IS A PROFESSIONAL, MODERN AND INSPIRATIONAL TEACHER, AND THE MAIN REASON I AM STILL DRUMMING TODAY.

CALLUM ROLLO - DRUMMER FOR "JAMES & THE VAN DER BEEKS" & "7UPPERCUTS"
