The Studio

Robbie Gibson BMus(Hons), LRAM

Robbie is a professional drummer, percussionist and teacher with over 15 years experience.
Since graduating as a performer and licensed teacher from the Royal Academy of Music in 2009, Robbie has taught a wide range of drummers of all ages and abilities. He has had the pleasure of touring the world with some West End musicals and shows like “Mamma Mia!”, “Avenue Q” and “Star Wars in Concert”.


“Robbie’s great gift is finding a lateral method to help me crack a pattern I just can’t get. Always a fun session and he loves talking about music generally, drumming in particular and all music genres from jazz to rock! When he started on-line classes I jumped at the chance to take lessons again, and I can’t believe how much difference it’s made to my drumming.” – Huw (student)

“My son has been having online lessons with Robbie for the last few weeks and it’s fantastic! No more driving to lessons, which gives me a much needed rest, and my son gets to learn on his own drums in his room! Robbie is a great teacher, my son always comes away from the lesson with a big smile on his face. Cheers Robbie” – Sandra (parent)

“I started with Robbie only a few months ago but from the lessons I have had, my technique and my understanding of different styles and how they are played have improved so much! I’m getting ready to go to the London College of Music and with Robbie’s help I feel as though I am more ready and prepared to go. Thank you Robbie!!” – Ross (student)
