  • Marc has been teaching my Son Lucas from the age of 6 - to now,  he is in senior school age 11.  Drums have become such a big part of his life, and something he has been able to identify himself against.  Learning the drums with Marc has not only helped him find something he is 'good at' amongst his peer group at school, it's also helped him academically and given him confidence to make the transition to senior school.  Not only is Marc an honest, talented teacher with real attention to detail - he clicks very well with children, becoming something of a mentor for Lucas as well.  He has always had a genuine concern and interest in his overall welfare.

    Cheryl Penman (Mother)

  • "I studied with Marc 9 years. He is such a first class educator and without him I would not be the musician I am today. I still go back for lessons when I feel stuck in my practice routine."

    Matthew Newman, music professional.

  • "Having learnt with Marc for 11 years, he has helped me tremendously in becoming a confident and well-rounded drummer. His wide knowledge of genres and enthusiastic approach to teaching aided me hugely in completing my learning and particularly my school A level performances."

    Matt Khoo, 22.

Sarah studioRoom 1:

The live room is ideal for rhythm section. This room has 60% acoustic treatment enabling us to capture the natural sound of acoustic instruments and the room ambience  separately, blending the two at a later stage to give a sound that is much larger than the actual space.  This room includes a Yamaha p90 piano, a selection of drum Kits and percussion and is also ideal for overdubbing a horn section.

Room 2:

The booth has 100% acoustic treatment and is ideal for vocals, acoustic guitar, or sax. It can also be used to remote a guitar amp so the musicians can all play together but we can maintain separation for mixing.

 Room 3:

The Control room also has 100% acoustic treatment to provide clarity when mixing and is also wired to be used as another booth if necessary.
