About Us

One to one tuition in Drums, Bass, Guitar, Piano and Vocals

The Gary O’Toole School of Music is based in Denmark Street in Central London, and offers one to one tuition in Drums, Bass, Guitar, Piano, and Vocals. It is headed by professional drummer and principle drum teacher, Gary O’Toole

We take students at any level, whatever your goals are – be it just wanting to play around the campfire, gig at your local pub or tour the world!

The idea for founding a music school was born out of his honest love of imparting knowledge and skills to his previous aspiring drum students while he taught privately and at other establishments, as well encouraging the joy in playing and enthusiasm for music as a whole subject.

Teachers in all departments at G.O.T. are always sought to possess a similar attitude, in the vein of the school’s motto, which states: “We love music; we love teaching.” Drawn from a mixture of professionals, with experience in both the teaching and performance fields, your teacher can relate to students with any level of experience and see just what is required in each individual situation, from the classroom, to the stage, to the recording studio.

From beginners, to intermediates, to established professional musicians and singers, the school’s main objective is to enhance your ability and performance, as well as making it an enjoyable and memorable experience.

Please take a look around our website for a better insight into the kind of experience you will have with us.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

Gary 🙂
