Say hi to Will, one of our Drum tutors here at Dronfield Music Tuition.

Will is a musician originally from Manchester, but now working in and around Sheffield as a performer and educator since completing his Music and Philosophy degree at The University of Sheffield in 2019.

Will has over 10 years of playing experience behind the drum kit, in which time he has been lucky enough to be a part of performance, composition and recording projects both in Sheffield and across the UK. Most notably this has included appearances at: Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival, London’s Pleasance Theatre, The International Music Festival in Brno, Y Not Festival, The Leadmill, Sheffield Jazz and Jazz at The Lescar.

Though Will enjoys playing many different styles of music as a session player with different artists around the city, his primary focus is jazz and contemporary performance. As someone who remains thoroughly focused on developing his own ability, Will is always engaging with new ideas and approaches to both playing drums and improving musicianship. This helps him to gather a very well-rounded understanding of drum performance, allowing his lessons to be tailored solely around the student and their goals. Will is a patient, friendly and enthusiastic individual that recognises that while no student is the same, every student has the potential to become a great drummer.

A little bit more about Will:

  • Favourite songs: Anything that swings!
  • Can’t live without: Coffee and good food!
  • Break-time snack: Malt loaf!
  • Fun fact about Will:  Will’s hair used to be long enough to reach my hips!
