    Richard Wainwright

    “I began playing drums at the age of 13 and I have studied a diverse range of genres and techniques on my way to achieving my Grade 8 with Distinction. Beyond Grade 8 I have continued to study music and further develop as a player, taking inspiration from a large array of drummers like Benny Greb and Matt Garstka in the process. I have also played at world-famous venues across the U.K such as London KOKO, The Garage and The Electric Ballroom as the drummer for Indie Rock band ‘The Repeat Offenders’ – extending my knowledge and experience beyond the grading syllabus. My aim as a teacher is to pass on my knowledge, experience and passion for the drums to the next generation of musicians.”
