Matt Butlin

Over 25years experience teaching throughout Torbay and Devon

I have set up percussion ensembles in schools, taught African drumming, samba and bucket drumming to whole classes as well as assisting with other school ensembles.

I have a collection of my own drum kits, djembes, sound shapes and other hand percussion should the school need extra instruments to add to their own.
