I’m Bridgend born and bred and after leaving university I moved to Japan for 4 years to teach English as a foreign language.
Always strive to find a lifestyle and job that you love and are passionate about.

I set up my drumming business in 2002 and went self employed a couple of years later. I work with schools, art providers, hospitals and disabled groups. I usually go to a venue with about 15-30 African drums and run a session for the group, getting them to play the drums together.
I got the idea for this from an apprenticeship I did out in Japan with a master drummer. My business has developed through word of mouth and I work all over Wales and parts of England although I’ve not had any luck yet breaking London!
