As Dye House Drum Works celebrates 10 years housed at Quad Studios in Leicester, Lee Boyd Allatson – approaching his own 50th year – reflects on this impressive milestone in delivering 25,000 lessons within the field of drum set education.
“I can’t quite believe it myself! It was the various anniversaries which brought my mind to totting up how many total lessons this made and the number was a real shock! I’m very lucky to have discovered an area of the arts which resonates for me and, particularly since moving my teaching operation to Quad, I’ve fallen in love with the instrument again. I’m practising and developing my own skills in playing, as well as researching and taking on cross platform collaborations in the wider arts community. I’ve been workshopping and lecturing in universities across the UK, which has been very inspiring in being able to delve deeper into more specialist areas and topics. All of this ultimately feeds back through the one-to-one teaching, keeping me fresh and excited about music.”
Lee Allatson teaches one-to-one drum set lessons at Dye House Drum Works, Leicester. Monday to Thursday, 4pm – 8pm. Call Lee on 07976 16 16 26 to book.
