Here some testimonials from current and past students:

"Chris is a brilliant teacher. Excellent technique and learning skills for kids and adults! He will definitely make you enjoy each session. He perfectly mixes theory and practice and smoothly adapts his sessions depending on your choice of music style and songs. Very pleasant guy, always listening to your questions and specific queries. I was lucky to get such a good teacher!! In two words... "Highly recommended"

"I’ve been playing now for over 30 years and found I was in a rut. I decided to find a good drum tutor to help me progress further. Chris is a professional drummer with a modern approach to teaching. The lessons have proven to be what I have been looking for. A good man with a positive attitude to playing. I feel I’ve been lucky to find him."

"Chris has a proven track record for producing results from his students making sure their technical ability is second to none. He has also proved indispensable when providing parents with tips and tricks from his experience. Even at such a young age he is already in demand for his drum knowledge from high profile drum legends such as Zigaboo Modeliste."                                                                                                                                                  
Cliff Cooper (Founder of Loughton Music Academy) 

"My ten year old son has been learning to play the drums with Chris for over a year. In which time my son has improved tremendously mainly due to Chris’s patience and enthusiasm.  The results have been amazing, my son is motivated and keen to practise during the week and cannot wait for his weekly lesson.  One thing that I really liked about Chris from the minute I met him was his ability to engage with my son, he is friendly and approachable and immediately struck up a conversation. I would thoroughly recommend Chris Purser, he is a fantastic drum teacher!  Within the next couple months my son will be taking his second grading and I know that with the encouragement from Chris and his attention to detail my son will be successful!"                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Kristina Howard 

"Chris is a world class musician and teacher. My 8 year old son has been playing the drums for almost 2 years now and Chris has been his drum instructor from the beginning. Chris has a teacher's heart. Chris is caring and patient. He is also extremely experienced, professional and passionate about what he does. Being young himself, Chris brings a cool and fun approach to lessons. Thanks to Chris, my son has made incredible progress and continues to gain passion and inspiration from him. I highly recommend Chris to drummers of all ages and skill levels."                                                                                                                        
Kristine Pampellonne

"As an adult learner the most important thing for me is to have a fun lesson - Chris makes sure I learn something new every week whilst having a great time.  I look forward to every single lesson!  He's very inspiring."                                                                                                                                                                                          
Susanna Fry 
"Lessons are always very fun with Chris. As an adult learner I was nervous and apprehensive but he made feel very relaxed and I have come on leaps and bounds since my first lesson. I would recommend him to everyone."                                                                                                                                                                        
Mark Hill

"Chris is an extremely patient teacher. My son always looks forward to his lessons with Chris. He is very out going, genuine and has a great rapport with my son."                                                                                                                                                            
Alison Fielding

"Chris has been teaching my son Gabriel for just over a year. The improvement I’ve seen has been amazing. What’s impressive is how he can get him to grasp quite complex techniques by explaining them in a way an eight year old can understand. I would recommend Chris to anyone!!"                                                                                                                                                            
Gianni Carofano

"My son (11) has been studying with Chris for the past year and has been thoroughly enjoying his lessons. Chris is a very approachable and patient person and seems to make the learning process fun and accessible to the younger age group effortlessly"                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Daniel Cramer

"I took up drumming a few months ago with Chris. He is an excellent teacher, the lessons are fun and under his inspirational tuition

I am coming on leaps and bounds. I would recommend Chris to anyone considering taking up the drums or wanting to develop their existing drumming."                                                                                                                                  David Rawlins

"I can't recommend Chris highly enough. He is a fantastic teacher. He has so much patience and is so encouraging. I have never played an instrument before and picked up my first pair of drums sticks at 52. Thank you Chris I am enjoying every minute of my lessons."                                                                                                    Maria Marsh

"I have sat in on my son's lessons with Chris for the last 2 years and observed at first hand his outstanding teaching abilities. The lessons are fun, energetic and feel spontaneous but underpinning this is a well thought out structure. Chris is very patient but also intuitive and is quick to try a different tactic when something isn't working, always maintaining a positive atmosphere. What has impressed me most of all is how he clearly adapts the lessons to the individual student and is keen to get the most out of them - not just following a set of rules or taking a 'one size fits all' approach."                                                                                                         Olly Wakeford
