“Grace is the most fantastic teacher. She has taken time to understand our son's musical interests and passions, often adapting the lessons to incorporate and capture these whilst also managing to give him a strong foundation in reading notation, theory. Grace communicates new musical ideas and techniques with ease, always ensuring our son understands. He looks forward to his lessons each week and comes out of every session buzzing to get home and practice. Grace is an excellent teacher and fantastic musician, and we feel fortunate to have found her! I cannot recommend her highly enough!”

“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. She is patient and has a way with words when explaining theory and techniques. The lessons are tailored to my ability and music interests and she always finds creative ways to help me improve. I always look forward to my next lesson!”

“I have had lessons at The Groove Hub for a couple of years and always look forward to them and thoroughly enjoy them and intend to have them for the foreseeable future. Grace is a brilliant teacher and blends the lessons with current work and additional exercises that fit in perfectly going forward. The lessons are so well constructed that you know she has been preparing them in advance and so she is spending much more time on you than just the hour you are with her. Drumming is a great hobby and with Grace's tuition I see improvement every week and that in itself is so satisfying. I recommend "The Groove Hub" for anyone interested in drumming from complete beginner to people aspiring to be professional as I know the facilities and Grace's teaching will get you to achieve your goals.”

"Harry had been playing drums for some time but was making little progress. Thankfully, Grace offered to tutor Harry and within a short space of time Harry has made great progress. Grace has excellent communication skills and has natural teaching ability. Her planning, recording and instructions for lessons are always meticulous and methodical. Above all Grace’s passion for music has made lessons fun and creative for Harry."

"Before coming to Grace for lessons Max had lost confidence in his ability to learn to play the drums. He had given up. Since starting with Grace he has been relaxed and enjoys playing the drums. He has gained confidence and likes her methods of teaching. If he does not understand something he feels able to ask Grace to explain it again."
Parent of Student
"I've been having lessons off Grace since April after buying an electronic drum kit during lock down. Before my first lesson, my coordination was next to none existent and my drumming technique was best described as an enthusiastic animal from the Muppets. However I can now hold a steady rhythm and play recognisable beats.
Grace has a relaxed instruction technique and is willing to give examples of how it should be played so that you can hear it in your mind and has a range of different methods to draw out of you the right beats I am very pleased with my progress and look forward to the weekly sessions where I am pushed towards more complex playing patterns."

"Grace is a very professional, polite young lady. She helped our son Tomas gain the confidence he needed to complete his grade 3 exam. He enjoyed her lessons and we noticed the difference in his playing and attitude in the months she spent with him. Tomas went on to gain his grade 3 Rockschool. Without those few months of lessons with Grace, the outcome may have been very different."

"Grace worked with me to prepare me for my grade 3 exam. In this time she has helped with my confidence and also my chosen pieces. She is very professional in her teaching role and she made me feel relaxed and confident. I went on to gain my grade 3 in Rockschool syllabus."
"Grace is an inspirational drummer and teacher. She always explains clearly what I need to do and tells me when I’m playing well. I really enjoy her lessons and wouldn’t have got through my exams without her."
