A very big thank you for teaching Ellie this year. Not only has she looked forward to her lessons and really enjoyed them, but her environment with the music department has helped her settle into secondary school. She often practises at lunch times. Thank you for your patience and support.


I practice weekly in the booths at Master Rhythm Studios. There is nowhere else like it in Oxford! Together with my 1 to 1 lessons with Darren, my playing has improved loads!


Darren has taught my son, who's nine, for six months now and my son's drumming has come on in leaps and bounds! Darren's contribution of enthusiasm, knowledge, patience and inspiring skills has worked wonders for my son. The new facility will only complete these qualities.

Darren is a great teacher making lessons fun and jazzing them up.

Hello Darren, had your website open because I was just recommending the studio to another band I know - and I took the time to watch your videos. Have to say they really made me smile. Top work. I tip my hat to you sir, I only wish there'd been someone like you around in 1971 when I started bashing around. Keep up the good work!
