Hi, I’m Alex Biggs! I’m the founder of Drum Base, a professional drummer, teacher, producer and author with a wealth of experience.
Learning an instrument can seem like a huge challenge so I offer encouragement, techniques and tips that will take your skills to the next level.
My passion for playing the drums started when I was 11 and since then I’ve enjoyed being on the playing circuit pretty much non-stop.
I’ve played in an eclectic range of bands that have included punk, indie, fusion, rock, function and big bands. As you can imagine, this has given me quite the repertoire of styles so whatever you’re into I can help you perfect.
PASSION FOR PLAYING
STEP BY STEP
Over the past decade and a half, teaching students of all abilities, I've seen what methods work best when learning the drums.
This inspired me to write five books, “Drums by Alex Biggs books 1-5”, to take you step by step through how to play the drums. I’m delighted that across the world students and teachers use these and that Rhythm Magazine described them as “A Superior Product”.
I’ve also got experience of touring, recording drum loops, session work and I’ve co-written and produced two albums. I have also co-written some songs in a recently published Ukulele book, Ukulele School by Paul Mansell. In addition to all of this, I’m very excited to be setting up a professional recording studio tailored towards recording drums to a high professional standard as well as recording solo artists
