Hey I am Luke. I have been drumming for 15+ years including live shows, studio work and teaching. I originally came from a rock background before studying jazz and world music with drummer Adrian Tilbrook, who I have spent over a decade studying with. I spent a lot of years working on my technique and developing my skills in a wide range of styles which has led me to finding my own sound, sitting somewhere between modern jazz and RnB/hip hop with a strong afrobeat influence.
I have spent the last few years studying Djembe and West African percussion with Mark Barfoot and enjoy seeing how those rhythms can be translated to the drum kit.
I strongly believe that a solid technique and a good understanding of a multitude of genres, and the history of those genres, are the necessary foundation for us to begin building our own style and finding our own individual sound as we progress on our musican journey. Every musician has their own feel that they bring to the instrument, shaped not only by the music we absorb, but also by our experiences in life and what we learn away from the instrument. I am very excited to help you develop and apply yours so that whatever the style of music you play, you bring your own unique creativity and feel, allowing you to play any genre you may encounter but also to improvise and create with confidence.
