“There are plenty of excellent drummers out there, but there are very few of them who are also excellent tutors. Chris Inman is both. I started to learn to play the drums late in life, and since I started over 2 years ago, I have used 4 drum tutors. Chris is the 5th and he has been a breath of fresh air. He is – without a doubt – the guy who has turned me around, and my skills have leapt ahead since using him. I just wish I’d known about him 2 years ago now as I’m sure I’d be a lot further on than I am. If you’re looking for the best tutor to teach you to play the drums; here he is. – C. Reynolds

“I’d not played the drums since I was 12 (and then badly). Now at 44, I decided that I wanted to learn how to play one beat well… ‘Fool In The Rain’ by Led Zeppelin. I emailed Chris, as he lives locally and explained my crazy idea…’No problem’ he said. Chris was awesome, he’d broken down the rhythm and devised a plan of action to help me learn it. I would recommend Chris to anyone, whether you’re an absolute beginner, a one riff wannabe rock drummer like me or an experienced drummer wanting to tighten up a bit. Next beat ‘Funky Drummer’ ” – G. Ella

Session Playing

“We’ve been working with Chris for the last 6 months and he’s fitted into the band perfectly. We were pretty demanding with what we wanted in a drummer, someone who could play the songs exactly as we’d recorded. Chris matched this perfectly, playing every beat and fill as recorded and turned up to rehearsals gig ready. He always does his homework with the songs and can match every challenge we throw at him. Great drummer and a nice guy too.” – Wonderland Trip

“A brilliant guy to work with, Chris fitted right into the band. He has the skills to play whatever’s needed, and knows what will work well in a song.” – Fear Me December

“It was absolutely brilliant to work with Chris. We literally arranged everything via telephone, sent him the stems and told him to show up before the gig and so he did! His professionalism and musical proficiency are 5 stars and he executed all the songs perfectly! We would definitely hire him again!” – Voodoo Diamond
