Des Mills in action
What the students say:

‘Des is a great teacher! He enabled me to do a gig at Wembley arena when I was only 13 years of age! I am now ready to take Rock School grade 8 after only a few months preparation’.

Elliott Purser age 14 – Golden Boulder

‘A friendly and approachable guy, Des has taught me at my own pace with encouragement all the way. He also helped me into my first proper band – an invaluable experience!'.

Kay Gumbrell, student of 6 years.

‘Lessons with Des have really helped develop my playing, technique, reading and general musical knowledge, which has enabled me to not only play much better, but also with more confidence, thanks to private, friendly lessons in a good environment’.

Mike May

‘The quality of teaching along with the friendly, professional and relaxed environment has kept me coming back to Des for over 10 years!’.

Joe White – Dynamo5

‘Our 12 year old son has been learning the drums for several years and has recently passed Grade 5 with merit. He has always passed his exams with a good grade and we feel that this has been due to Des Mill's excellent tuition’.

David and Mandy Few

'When I first got introduced to Des I wasn’t able read music or even keep a decent beat. Within a year I was in a band and playing gigs. We even played at Bognor Rox 2 years running. He was always willing to teach me the latest song that I had to learn before the next rehearsal. (I’m sure he must have hated it sometimes, but he never showed it).Thanks Des for bringing out the rock n roller in me!'.

Shaun - Chichester

'After many years superb tuition from Des I was able to go to University and gain a music degree majoring in drum kit performance, I am currently in a successful band based in Central London and none of this would have been possible without his dedication. I forged a great friendship with him and would recommend anybody wishing to learn drums to go and see him and check out the great facilities and tuition on offer, I cannot rate his teaching ability highly enough'.

Nick Edney

'I have been playing drums in a church worship band since 1995 and have greatly valued Des' guidance and input. He is an excellent teacher who has enabled me to become a very experienced and confident drummer'.
