About the Principal



Charlie Wildman

My twin boys (aged 9) have private guitar and drum lessons with Dan. They have never been so inspired and excited about learning anything. Dan is a great role model and is able to keep their learning fun, progressive and linked in with modern music which is inspiring for the kids. I can t recommend him enough - great value for money!

Jackie Hoare

Dan has proved to be a fantastic drum teacher for our 15 year old who is working towards taking his grade 8 Rockschool exam.  He uses a very comprehensive and encouraging teaching style and has built a good rapport with our son.  We find Dan reliable and all communications with him have been clear and positive.

My two children aged 9 and 13 have been receiving weekly guitar lessons from Dan Adcock of the Southern Drum School for the last year.  Dan is always friendly and enthusiastic.  He makes every lesson fun so the children look forward to seeing him every week.  He has an excellent knowledge of music throughout the decades from today’s modern chart hits to the golden oldies of the 70s and 80s. He is very approachable and easy to get along with and has built a good rapport with my children.

Donna Paterson

Calumn has been having drums lessons for a few months now and he is absolutely loving Dan teaching him. Dan is full of passion and enthusiasm which Calumn thrives from. Calumn is now wanting to take GSCE and I'm sure Dan will make sure he pass with flying colours.
Dan is a trustworthy and polite gentleman. He never wastes time, when he arrives he's focused and dedicated to teaching Calumn.
