Performance analysis

I don't live around Bedfordshire, what would you recommend I look for in a drum teacher?

They should have a proven track record with many years of experience. Certainly enquire about their students and what they have acheived. 

Would you prefer to be tutored from the comfort of your own home? I can come to you!
