Percussion Works (PW) is a growing drum and percussion teaching practice located in Bournemouth on the south coast of the UK.


PW was founded by Simon Mellish in 2004. At PW, we pride ourselves on total commitment to student development. This means we offer all ages and abilities professional tuition. We ensure that you will receive the benefit of a top quality curriculum which is varied and allows you to play what you want to play. It also allows the student to develop at his or her own particular learning pace.

If a student has a special learning requirement, then the course can be very easily adapted to accommodate any particular need. The teaching faculty at PW has many years experience teaching students with specific learning needs and we are extremely confident that we can help the student achieve their drumming goals through percussive enrichment.

We are also specialists at teaching snare drum technique with particular attention being paid to the highly respected Moeller System. Simon is able to provide extensive tutoring in this area and can offer tailor made courses to suit both student availability and budget. Lessons are held in the fully equipped state of the art studio.
