About Callum Smith

Callum started playing drums at the age of 10 and started gigging regularly around the UK in his early teens. With his love for all different styles of music, Callum moved to London in 2015 to expand his musical language and network.

From 2015-2018, Callum took on a BMus (Degree) in Popular Music performance at BIMM London/London College of Music. In 2019, Callum became a double scholarship holder on the Jazz Masters course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Being a performer and gigging regularly is something that Callum has loved from a young age. But as of recent years, Callum’s growth and passion for teaching and sharing knowledge in drumming is something he deeply believes in and values to his skills as a musician.
