As a child, Michael was educated by Malcolm Dicks (Richie Blackmore, Toy Dolls) and stayed with Malcolm until he left to join the Armed forces, from there Michael played with a number of artists across the globe.
Michael is currently studying with Gabor Dornyei freelance drummer and Head of Drums at DIME Online

When Michael left the forces in 2006, Michael set out to get a name for himself in the drum community within England, working closely with Sony BMG and playing notable venues in the west end of London he set out to be the drummer that people wanted back at the end of a session.
Michaels reputation as being "The Nicest drummer to work with" has led him to be one of the busiest drummers in the North East.
Triple-T Drumming was born out of watching drum groups and teachers come to his sons school and try and influence the children to play music, frustrated at the music teachers playing songs from the 60s and not giving any life to the music, Michael set out to change this and make Drumming cool and want to be learnt.
Michael has had amazing success and is only growing, day by day, week by week.
School work has increased week by week, with schools pre booking Triple-T Drumming months in advance for assembly work, after school clubs, and even one and one lessons.
Private lessons are increasing on a daily and weekly basis

Michael splits his time between working with artists, Studying with DIME (Detroit Institute of Music Education) and teaching, along with spending time with his wife Claire, and his 3 sons, Travis, Tre' and Ty (hence Triple-T)
His main hobbies outside of playing drums, learning drums, researching drums, is split between, going for walks with his family, watching movies (loves marvel) and the most important Cooking, not the best chef in the world but loves creating nice food that people enjoy.
