The Wesley Buildings, redruth

ash|jam|drum originally started at Trevada Music, Camborne in which the business built its foundation. Unfortunetly due to the recent Coronavirus Pandemic the shop took quite a hit like many other retailers resulting in a change of premises. Luckily ash|jam|drum has found a great new home in The Wesley Buildings, Redruth.

Built in 1865 the Wesley Buildings are a real historic part of Redruth town located at the top of fore street. The building is now used for many different social clubs bringing the community together.


Lessons are completely bespoke to the individual. I have always been a big believer that one mould doesn’t fit all so the first few sessions are designed to find the best route for efficient learning.

Here are a few areas which are covered in the lessons:

  • Techinique
  • Rudiments
  • Sightreading
  • Graded Studies (Trinity Guildhall & Rock school)
  • All Genres covered from Pop to Jazz
  • Independence
  • Musicianship
  • How to structure efficient practice routines


The drum room offers two side by side kits making the lessons as interactive as possible. Students will be able to take advantage of a state of the art Roland TD50K2 while in lesson.


The drum lessons cost £11.50 for a 30 minute session or £23.00 for a 60 minute session. Lesson rates do increase annually from September to meet inflation. You can either pay cash in hand weekly, bank transfer or set up a standing order.


If you are unable to attend due to other comittments please allow 24 hours notice before your lesson is booked otherwise I will have to charge for the lesson slot.

If your cancelation is because of an emergency or illness I will let you off as I’m such a nice guy!

Online lessons

I can also teach online lessons with either Skype, Zoom or FaceTime so if you would prefer that due to your location or the fact that you can’t come in one week we can transfer across easily.
