About James Ashdown

James is a professional freelance drummer and drum tutor living in Southampton, and has been working in the industry for little over 6 years now. He enjoys a busy gigging schedule and has been teaching privately and at colleges for the past 3 years. James graduated from the University of Southampton in 2009 with a BA Music (hons) and again in 2011 with a Masters degree in Music Composition with Distinction.

I welcome people of all ages and abilities, from the complete beginner to advanced players. I tailor lessons to each students needs, and encourage pupils to bring along musical material that they have a specific interest in learning. Having fun whilst drumming is a key aspect of music making so I always welcome students who want to learn their favourite songs and music. I can also cover the following skills in my lessons:

Drum kit independence
Styles - Rock/Pop/Funk/Latin/Jazz and more.
Groove & feel
Sight reading & kit notation
Guildhall drum kit grades 1-8

I charge £14 for 30 mins and £25 for 60 mins and all of my lessons are 1-to-1, held in my drum room at home, or I can travel to you. I am willing to travel to many of the surrounding areas of Southampton, but distance dependent there may be a small additional fee for my travel, but don't hesitate to get in touch to enquire!

Please note! At least 24 hours notice is required for cancellations to avoid being charged for the lesson.
