Single lessons can be booked on an ad hoc basis for:

30min lesson - £23

60min lesson - £34

When arranging single lessons, Simon will try and be as flexible as possible, though the lesson day and time will likely be determined by Simons availability.

A £4 kit hire fee and/or petrol fee will apply to each lesson where necessary



A block of 4 lessons can be arranged at the discounted price of:

4 x 30min lessons - £85

4 x 60min lessons - £125

A block of 4 lessons must be booked as 4 weekly lessons in a period of 4 consecutive weeks. By doing so, you effectively reserve your lesson day and time for this period. No refunds are issued when using this method, however, any cancelled lessons can be rescheduled.

A £16 kit hire fee and/or petrol fee will apply to each 4 lesson block where necessary.



A monthly membership is the most cost-effective and flexible membership option. This membership guarantees you 42 lessons per calendar year for a further discounted rate per lesson, and effectively reserves your lesson slot for the entire calendar year . The prices for monthly memberships are as follows:


30 MIN LESSONS - £70 p/m

(£20 per lesson)


60 MIN LESSONS - £105 p/m

(£30 per lesson)


Your monthly membership takes into consideration any instances where you are unable to have drum lessons throughout the year (holiday, illness, etc). Subsequently, the number of lessons you receive month by month may vary slightly, and it is highly advised that you inform Simon - as soon as possible - of any prior commitments throughout the year, as your direct debit payments will remain the same each month. Throughout the calendar year, Simon will review your lesson count to ensure that you are on track to receive the guarantee of 42 lessons per year. 


If Simon is unavailable to teach a lesson (illness, holiday etc), he will endeavour to arrange a catch-up lesson at your earliest convenience. Catch-up lessons can also be arranged during school holidays at different times/days to usual lesson slots if required.


A direct debit payment will be set up for monthly membership subscriptions, charged on the 1st of each month for that month. In the instance where you wish to cancel your monthly membership subscription, a minimum of 6 weeks notice must be provided.

A £14 kit hire fee and/or petrol fee will apply to each monthly payment where necessary. If a student receives/purchases a drum kit during their monthly membership and Simon no longer needs to provide his own equipment for lessons, the direct debit payment will reduce accordingly for that month, and the kit hire fee waived for the subsequent months to follow.



Online Lessons take place on Zoom and can be booked for:

30min lesson - £17

60min lesson - £25

If government guidelines determine that 1-to-1 lessons cannot take place, online lessons should be arranged in order to continue students' progress - with a view to continuing 1-to-1 lessons when it is safe to do so.

Please ensure you have a good quality network connection for your Zoom Lesson. More tips can be found here
