Debbie Grant (Private Student’s Parent):
“Our 11 year old son recently started learning drums with Thom Mills. We are so impressed with Thom’s dedication and expertise that I wanted to send this feedback. Thom’s lessons are stimulating and fun whilst still including the essentials such as the reading of drum/ percussion music and attention to correct technique.
Thom has been gaining our son’s interest by focusing on music styles relevant to his age group and from there is moving on to other styles.
Thom is happy to travel to our home for the lesson which is a huge bonus for a busy family! This way, we are easily able to exchange feedback with Thom re. progress. I could not recommend Thom more highly!!”
Katy Sayers (Private Student’s Parent):
All lessons are conveniently at home at times to suit us. The teacher is always punctual, and lessons are fun, absorbing and well planned. The teacher is also very flexible in terms of new songs we ask to learn. All round 11/10 !
Adam Bushell (Sheryl Crow, Faithless, Celtus, Rhythm Magazine):
“Thom was a drum student of mine from throughout his years on the Higher Diploma and BA(Hons) course at BIMM. Throughout this time I found him to be an excellent student, both in terms of his attendance and punctuality, but also his work ethic to improve his drumming ability. The recent performances I’ve seen have proved to me the hard work has paid off – he’s playing great!”
As an adult student wanting to learn how to play the drums properly, Thom was a great help. After only a few lessons I had a better understanding of proper playing technique, some of the technical drumming terms and styles.
Thom also encouraged and constantly praised me for my ability and timing/rhythm. I would highly recommend Thom to anybody who wants to start playing and enjoying the drum kit no matter how old they are.
Thom always travelled to my house and always had loads of drumming books/material with him, he is a great tutor and talented drummer. I was very lucky to learn from someone with his expertise.
