Hey! I'm Stu, a drummer from the UK. After years playing in local bands and a few years in a Pantera tribute (I was 'Skinny Paul'...), I now spend my weekends playing in a wedding/function band called Eccentric Pony, to happy couples across the UK.

For the last 10+ years, I've been working as a full-time drum tutor and now run my own tutoring service, 'Beyond the Beat', from my home studio and personalized online classes. It was a few years into the journey that I realized that my calling is to help people achieve what they need to become the drummer that THEY want to be.

  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    At outdoor festival performances with the Pantera tribute band, having the entire crowd screaming after nailing 'Primal Concrete Sledge' for the first time - I'm left handed but play right handed so adapting the pattern to fit my style was tricky!
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    Knowing that what I do is being well-received by a thirsty audience who enjoy the same things for the same reasons as myself. Showcasing the ideas that I use to develop my own understanding of this wonderful instrument we play.
  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    Vic Firth have always stood out to me as not only the number 1 drumstick company in the world whose products and quality control are simply outstanding, but as a resource for drummers who want want access to world-class educational material.
