Neal has been involved with drums for over 20 years and is a highly rated drum teacher in the north east of England, he teaches from beginners to advanced levels.
Neal began drum lessons at the age of nine and played his first gig at twelve years old, during this time he listened to his drumming heroes; Buddy Rich, David Garibaldi, Steve Gadd, Louie Bellson and Billy Cobham and began setting targets for his own personal goals, playing and creating his own drumming style. Working hard on his hand speed he began to discover a love for marching and highland drumming technique and would sit in and jam with the local pipe bands.
Leaving school at 16 to be a professional musician, he soon became well known on the local music scene performing with artists and bands from the UK and abroad also working in pantomime pit orchestras, brass bands and touring theatre shows.
Over the years Neal has worked with many top rock and resident bands gaining much valuable musical experience and knowledge in this area of drumming.
Neal is also available for home visits.
