About Leeds Drum Lessons

Welcome to Drum Lessons Leeds! My name is Alasdair Wells and I am a professional drum teacher based here in Leeds, helping students of all ages and abilities learn to play the drums. I cover a wide range of different musical genres, ensuring that my students learn through playing the music that they are passionate about.

I am an experienced and qualified musician with a first class degree from the Leeds College Of Music, specialising in Jazz and Popular Music performance with disciplines in Drum Kit and Percussion. Most notably, I was resident drummer for band ‘Rationale’ on their debut UK and American sell-out tours, including performances for Bestival Toronto, JBTV, BBC Radio 1’s Future Festival in London and Later… with Jools Holland.

Performances with other artists include the opening ceremony for the 2014 Tour de France at the Leeds First Direct Arena with Kimberley Walsh and Alasdair Griffin, the London Mayor’s Stage at the 2012 Olympics with Edmund Jeffery and a debut live session on Sofar Sounds with Bianca Gerald, with whom I am also resident live drummer.

With a passion for session work as well as live performance in a variety of genres I have a huge wealth of experience of different musical styles that I am able to teach. Indeed, I play for a number of Jazz, Pop and experimental ensembles whilst also enjoying composing and co-writing music for various Jazz idioms. The Calvin Travers Trio, Aleks Podraza Trio, Natalie Holmes and Nicky Powel are to name only a few of the artists that I have performed for, both live and in the studio, whilst also pursuing many solo and collaborative projects.

I would be delighted to help you to learn the drums, whether you are beginner student picking up the sticks for the first time or if you are a more advanced drummer looking to reach that next level. If you are interested in learning more about my drum lessons, as well as booking your first lesson, don't hesitate to email me on info@drumlessonsleeds.co.uk.

My lessons are specifically designed for each individual student and focus on two main things: my student's enjoyment and overall experience of drumming and making their learning efficient as possible. This certainly means that we'll be covering all genres of music in lessons and especially the type of music you love to play and listen to; so whatever your age or drumming experience, I am here to teach you the drums and take you to that next level!
