Group Practice


We offer a complete range of services which we have derived from decades of experience and our track record with our own Boghall and Bathgate organisation; which has covered Novice, Juvenile, Grade 4, Grade 3, Grade 2 and Grade 1 winning countless awards since 1975.

Whilst we have committed years of our lives to the Boghall and Bathgate organisation many other bands and organisations not only in Scotland but all over the World have benefited from workshops and seminars as well as several of our other services.

The 2008 World Solo drumming championships saw 25% of all the prizes won by players taught by Tom and Gordon including Steven Shedden (Juv Sec 2) and Craig Brown (Juv Sec 3). This was Craig's 4th World Solo title.

It is worth noting that all our tuition services are available for any player regardless of experience.
