About Chris Perkins

I started as a Principle Percussionist with the Northants County Music School and studied with Richard Coles (former BBC Big Band Drummer of the Year). I have played with rock bands, jazz bands, big bands, University orchestras of London and Oxford and various city symphony orchestras (including Plymouth). I also played for the top section brass band GUS, performing at the Royal Albert Hall and across the UK and Europe. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Education, PGCE (Oxon) and I have lots of experience teaching students of all ages. I passed Grade 8 Drumkit with distinction, before going on to pass the Rockschool Performance Diploma on Drumkit with distinction. (DipRSL.perf). I now teach and perform in Plymouth where I live with my wife and two children.
