Sam Green is a drummer and musician living in Epsom, Surrey. From modest beginnings playing his favourite songs with friends, he progressed to studying at the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) in Guildford and then into a full-time teaching and playing career. Notable highlights so far have been gigs at the Queens Stand in Epsom Downs with The Rockefellas, recording the album ‘Reap’ with the band UK Heights and playing live on BBC Radio Wales with singer/songwriter October.
He is currently available for sessions, deps and tours with covers or originals bands on a full or part time basis.
Sam first began teaching in 2005 after graduating from the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) in Guildford. In 2007, wishing to add more structure to his teaching, he joined the Drumsense teaching programme and received full teacher training from Drumsense founder, Colin Woolway. Since then he has become an accomplished and seasoned educator, teaching hundreds of students in and around the Surrey area. In September 2011 he joined the teaching staff of Sutton Music Centre and also continues to teach privately from his home in Epsom, Surrey.
Inspired by Sam’s infectious enthusiasm for the instrument and his patient and calm teaching style, many students have joined local bands, passed grade exams and successfully enrolled in higher education. Successful ex-students include: Joe Colfar (ACM, drummer with Mocara and The Wooden Men) and Sam Pollard (drummer with The Theory of 6 Degrees, the youngest band ever to play the Glastonbury Festival (2010)).
To this day, Sam still looks forward to each lesson and takes great pleasure in passing his knowledge on to others.
