Prefer to watch drumming rather than read about it?

Simon Greenhill (Daddy Funk Drums) has been playing drums since the age of 11, and has made teaching drums a profession since 1993. Find out more in the drumming mini-documentary below...

...and if you prefer to read about drumming rather than watching it...

Daddy Funk takes inspiration from all genres, but the drummers he was most inspired by in his early playing career are Buddy Rich, John Bonham, Stuart Copeland, Neil Peart, Steve Jansen, Peter Erskine and Omar Hakim.

Playing as a professional touring musician in three bands (Inner Rhythym, Funkabubble and Bird Tribe) for many years honed his skills. The decision to become a drumming tutor came in 1993, and was a natural extension of the passion and excitement he felt for the instrument. Daddy Funk Drums was born.

Daddy Funk Drums uses a full bespoke custom-built Orange County Drum & Percussion (OCDP) set as his main teaching kit for both face-to-face and online drum tuition. He has been endorsed as a drum educator by Yamaha Drums, Zildjian Cymbals (both 2005), Trueline Sticks (2006), Istanbul Agop Cymbals and Los Cabos Drumsticks (both 2015).
