James Rawson - Professional Drummer and Drum Tutor

Welcome to my website. I’m a professional drummer and drum teacher based in Kings Norton, Birmingham.

I’ve been playing the drums for 25 years and now I’m lucky enough to make my living from it. I manage and perform in the highly successful wedding & party band - The Smooth Criminals and teach drums both from my home studio and in three local schools including working for Solihull Music Service. Here you’ll find all the details about my drum tuition as well as all the songs and videos I’ve worked on, plus loads of photos and links to my current projects.

Feel free to get in touch if you’re interested in learning the drums or need a drummer or band for any event.
