The Northern Beaches Drum School is excellent and I thoroughly recommend them. Phil (the owner) has built up a good group of teachers. My son has been having lessons with Pete for several years now and has also had lessons with other teachers when Pete was away, and I can say they all teach to a very high standard. In our experience, Pete is great at adapting to each student's musical style and interests. Plus he pays attention to details and instils this attitude in his students. We can tell the instruction is working because not only does my son enjoy his lessons, but he is also building up his skills and getting great results in exams.
