About Liam Hardy

My name is Liam Hardy and I have been playing drums and percussion for over 10 years, and have 5 years experience playing music professionally. I have toured and continue to tour the UK extensively playing concerts, festivals, ceilidhs and private functions such as weddings. I currently mostly play with Folk Rock group Blackbeard’s Tea Party, with whom I have played hundreds of shows over the past few years including Cambridge Folk Festival, Bingley Music Live and Whitby Folk Week.

I am passionate about drums and music in general and I believe that whether you’re a casual player just having a bit of fun or interested in formal music exams and grades, drumming is a great pastime to have. It exercises you both mentally and physically, enables you to have a deeper understanding of how music works and broadens the mind as a music listener. It can be a lifelong hobby no matter how serious you are with it, there’s always something new to discover. In short, everybody should do it!

In my lessons I will teach you various techniques, exercises and drum pieces that with practice will greatly improve your overall drumming ability. Whether you’re an absolute beginner or have some experience playing drums I will cater the lessons to your individual style, enabling you to learn at your own pace and focus on what you want to achieve.

I teach on a Roland TD-12, and play Tama Drums, Zildjian Cymbals and LP Cajons and Percussion.
