Music Tuition - Drum Tutor - Ash Russell


It was when I was six years old that I began drumming.  Since then I have played with numerous bands covering a wide range of genres, from orchestral to reggae to hard rock. 

At age 14 I sat my Grade 8 Trinity Guildhall exam, the same year I started teaching part-time. I have been teaching full-time as an itinerant drum tutor at a number of schools around Hamilton for the past four years, doing a range of styles and genres. 

I have had a number of successful students come out of my teaching, something which makes me proud to be a drum teacher. 

This will be my fourth year teaching at Fairfield Intermediate - a school I thoroughly enjoy being at.
