This is where you can read what other people have to say about Richard, both about teaching, gigging, recording and in clinic.

“I am very inspired by certain drummers that are dedicated, hard working and excellent musicians! Then add on top of that a strong desire to teach and you have the complete musician! Richard Wilson is this person! In our lessons together Rich sets a new standard for himself to reach higher all the time! He inspires people every day! This is a strong commitment to positive change! This is what is needed more in drumming and in life! Rich…keep going!”

RE Video Lessons.

The lessons provided by Richard were deceptively difficult, what was
ostensibly a simple pattern, when approached carefully, proved to have a lot
of hidden benefits.  Being able to practice at my own pace is essential.
Without feeling the pressure to have a part nailed by a fixed time and date
allowed me to really dig deep in to the structure of the task and maximise
the benefit.  Having Richard on hand via email and by sending video clips of
myself allowed us both to approach the needs of my development by assessing
areas of improvement and then me taking this on board and working with it.
For someone like me, who needs to work at his own pace and within his own
time structures, these lessons are a boon.  To be able to put the lessons
and videos supplied by Richard on to my laptop & have them with me to
use when I have the opportunity was a huge help to me.  The lessons made an
immediate improvement to my playing, out on 2 gigs after the first lessons
allowed me to play with more finesse, add some dynamics and have better
endurance.  Definitely recommended.

Richard has a really friendly approach to tuition so you soon feel at home.   He helps you progress step by step, adding just the right amount of stretch material so you are constantly on the cusp of mastering the next technique and eagerly anticipating the next lesson.  He has a knack of identifying slight nuances in how you play that can be improved upon and always has a quick fix solution that always works.  Enthusiastic, inspirational.  You get what you pay for……Top class tuition from a top class musician.

Ive been taking lessons from Richard since 2008, in that time he has completely transformed the way I play. There hasnt been a single thing he hasnt been able to help me with, and believe me I often test him! Everything from second line drumming to tuning, solo ideas to keeping accounts for my band earnings. Chances are if he cant help you with a topic then it aint worth learning!

“I was self-taught for several years before coming to Rich, His keen-eye saw what needed to be done to improve my playing and through his patient and determined teaching style, he’s taken my playing skills through the roof. He’s always focused on inspiring me to push myself to become the best drummer I possibly can be. His knowledge is second-to-none and he’s a top-class bloke to boot. Without Rich, I’d surely be a guitarist by now.”
