I began playing drums around the age of sixteen, and joined my first band a year later. In 1996, I attended the Musicians Institute in Wapping, under the tutelage of great drummers such as Thomas Lang. At the time Thomas was teaching a class called applied technique, which was an eye opener to say the least. I remember being told about Thomas on the first day of college, but nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see. From that moment on, I was inspired beyond belief, and spent countless hours practicing and honing my technique.
My name is Simon Roberts, I started playing drums when I was five years old in 1998. I’ve been a student at Mashu Studios since then and became a tutor there in the summer of 2010. Whilst I have collected a lot of experience playing live shows, touring the UK and recording many EP’s my real passion lies in playing in musical theatre and in session work. I began working in theatre in 2013 with a local amateur group. Since then I’ve gone on to play in many musicals and theatre productions as well as play in orchestras and big bands.
