About Agust Sveinsson

I have been a professional drummer for over 25 years and have in that time been involved in numerous projects covering all styles of music ranging from pop and rock to big band and everything in between. For the last few years I have been mainly involved in musical theatre and have worked on some of the biggest shows in the UK both on tour and in the west end of London. I have a BA Hons degree in music & sound recording from Salford University where I took private lessons with one of UK’s most renowned drum teachers, Dave Hassell. I am also a dedicated teacher and teach at a private school as well as privately in my studio.

My teaching experience spans over 20 years and I have experience in teaching all ages and skill levels. Whether you are a beginner or just want to expand your current ability I will be able to give you the skills you need to really progress with your playing. It doesn't matter if you're 8 or 80 years old, a total beginner or an experienced player, I can design a teaching program that suits you as an individual and a player, addressing the areas that you want to improve on. Pop, Rock, Jazz, funk, Big Band, Latin, Ballroom dancing, musical theatre, and more, every style is covered.

With over 20 years experience as a professional player in all styles of music and having being taught myself by one of UK's most renowned drum teacher Dave Hassell you can rest assured that I can take your playing ability to a new level that's both practical and fun. I am CRB checked and I teach on top of the range equipment at my purpose built studio in St Neots, Cambridgeshire which includes a Yamaha Recording Custom, a DW Collectors Series and a Roland TD30 electronic kit. I have facilities to both record and video your playing for a more advanced learning experience and of course just for fun. Please check out my website for more information.
