Note about our Teacher and founder, Matt Seymour;
Matt was taught by the well respected drummer Paul Francis after nearly a decade of being self taught, and took lessons for another ten years. In this time Matt also received other lessons from well known drummers such as Jim Chapin (famous for the Moeller Technique), and the late Chuck Silverman who taught in Universities in the states and was a well respected player and educator in Latin and Funk studies. Matt studied for his grades under the old Guildhall system. Matt has been dedicated to learning and sharing information on drums his whole life and in this pursuit has spent countless hours practising, watching videos, attending drum shows and clinics with international drumming stars and now runs several facebook pages and websites.
