our Drum Tutors

Here at The Groove Hub our aim is to make learning to play the drums a fun experience, tailored to each individual student's needs. We believe this starts with tutors who are passionate about teaching and want to see our students achieve their drumming goals.

You can meet the tutors at our Manchester studio below and find out who you'll be studying with!


My name is Grace Chilcott, I’m a Manchester based drummer & drum educator (fully DBS checked) and owner of The Groove Hub.


I’ve played drums for over 17 years and in that time I’ve studied with some of the most respected drummers in the world, including Mike Johnston, Craig Blundell & Steve White.


As a player I have toured the UK and Europe extensively, including gigs at The Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall and I’ve also made multiple radio & TV appearances.


With over 10 years’ teaching experience, I’m always keen to help drummers reach their goals. Whether you are a beginner just picking up a pair of sticks for the first time, or an advanced player looking for help to push your playing to the next level, don’t hesitate to get in touch to see how I can help you with your drumming.

Watch / Listen

It's always good to know if your teacher can play before taking lessons!

You can check out some of my playing on the feed below, or visit my Instagram page directly to listen to some drumming clips.

What our students & parents say:

“Grace is the most amazing teacher! I have been with her for almost 2 years now and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Starting as a complete beginner with no confidence in ever learning a musical instrument, she brought back my confidence and I feel like I am improving with every single lesson.

I always look forward to my next lesson!”
