Chris Kerley - Zedi Forder

Drum Tuition +

Hi I'm Chris or "Kerl" if you like! I'm a brand new tutor in Surrey. I have been drumming for 25+ years and it's one of my favourite things to do alongside song writing, singing and production. I've written, drummed & sung on multiple releases from albums to EP's and built up a strong discography and oodles of practical experience live and in the studio. Genres range from rock/metal to electro/acoustic/pop.

I'm currently offering drum tuition +. Drum lessons to get you up to a level where you can play your favourite tunes and construct your own grooves. Advice and help with song writing (optional to those interested). My tutoring style is informal, easy going and relaxed and my genre expertise lie mostly within rock, metal and pop. I don't focus on exams and grades. I do focus on fun, fitness, motivation, band dynamics and nurturing your creativity and all at a pace you're comfortable with.

REMEMBER - Drumming is for any age, young or old. If you can swing a stick you can give drumming a bash! I have a full sized kit & junior sized. Want to bring a friend and share your session and have a great bonding experience? No problem!

Drumming has a bonus, it's great exercise. Alongside the fun and fulfilment of learning the best instrument and improving your ambidexterity please remember the many healthy positives of taking up the drums, including -

What equipment do you need?
You don't need a drum kit to take lessons (You'll use one of mine) but you will need something to practice with at home if you hope to see improvement.
I recommend:

  • Sticks

  • Practice pad

  • Ear protection (Muffs & plugs)

  • Isolated ear buds (to listen to audio/click)

When you're suitably invested - A solid acoustic kit or an electronic drum kit (for the quieter option!)

I don't currently offer online lessons. Please get in contact regarding availability and to find out more.


“Chris has written and been involved in some great musical projects. If he can impart a fraction of what he’s learnt over the years then it’s a fee well spent. I came to him as an intermediate drummer. His style is informal but great fun that gets results!” – Chris P (Student)
"I truly enjoy my lessons with Chris. He's a real musician who is very passionate about music and helps you to train your ear rather than just focusing on theory, which helps you to gain more practical skills to be a better drummer. I can already see a huge improvement in my drumming abilities and I'm looking forward to my next session with Chris!"
Agnieszka (Student)
"GREAT DRUM TEACHER. HE IS AS PATIENT AS HE IS TALENTED. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I have had a couple of lessons so far and have to say Kerl has been great. He is very patient and encouraging. I was a bit apprehensive at first about taking drum lessons but I can honestly say that it's worth every penny and I highly recommend it."
Glenn H (Student)
