Peter Student

"Jonathan has been a constant source of excellent teaching, support and general musicianship for the drummer in our family over many years now. I would highly recommend him to anyone starting out or for anyone looking for technical improvement in a supportive, professional but fun-orientated environment."

Clare Consultant

Jono is a brilliant teacher. Not only is he highly skilled, he is also amazingly enthusiastic and encouraging. Jono seems to be able to bring out the best in each student. We have been so pleased to have our son learn from him for the last 3 years. We can’t recommend Jono highly enough.

Jennifer and Richard

I have had great support from my teacher, if I was to give one example it would be the level of interaction that the beat provides to students, 1 on 1 taylor made tuition where they can provide lessons from different angles and soon learn to adapt to a students needs & wants.
