AAA – How did you come across Access All Areas Bradford?

NG – It was just by chance that my Uncle was taking Guitar lessons there, so I thought it would be a good idea to take music lessons there aswell.

AAA – What do you think of Access All Areas Bradford and Billy Lockwood’s teaching?

NG – I find the place very easy to access and has a great vibe/environment to it. Its quite unique in its own way.

I find Billy really down to earth and very friendly. He has vast amount of skill in the music industry and I feel pretty confident to learn and listen to him.

What I like is that he is hands on and we can play the drums together. This really helps me to lock into the beats.

I just enjoy playing the drums as hobby and it gets me away from the pressures of a busy schedule.

Therapeutic actually!
