I USE 3 SECRETS TO SIMPLIFY THE ART OF DRUMMING FOR BEGINNERS

Hi, I'm Simon! I started playing drums at age 13 as a self-taught hobbyist, my music career unexpectedly kicked off after a cruise ship drumming gig during my travel industry career. Seeking improvement post-contract, I learned from multiple teachers, eventually managing a top British drum store. Moving to L.A. in 2003, I gained diverse TV, theatre, and indie artist production experience. Throughout these adventures, teaching has remained my passion.


In 2016, I founded Drum Ambition to provide a structured, entertaining video curriculum for busy beginner drummers. My modern approach addresses the challenges of today's lifestyles. As a full-time teacher, I understand the hurdles of learning a musical instrument, emphasizing that, with proper guidance and a focus on enjoyment, anyone can learn to play the drums.

1

No playing plateaus

Technical skills are great, but beware of tunnel vision. My comprehensive approach helps build a solid foundation that allows you to finely tune the details over time, without getting lost in them. 

2

Multi-sensory theory

Rather than shying away from notation, I provide 1-on-1 demonstration with real-time notation on screen—so you can focus on playing along while gently learning theory for long-term success.

3

Low commitment

With professional insights, troubleshooting solutions, and realistic goal-setting supporting your bite-sized lessons, Drum Ambition works to get you progressing and having fun in 20 minutes a day... really.
