Andy Sturges


Welcome to my website,

I am a professional musician based in Portsmouth, UK. I have been working as a freelance drummer for over Twenty years and though based on the South Coast, I mainly work in London and across the UK and from time to time I find my self in various parts of main land Europe.

I am experienced in a wide range of styles and often find myself prepping for anything from Afro-Cuban to Brazilian music, Big Band to Ballroom Jazz, Thrash Metal to touring Theatre Shows and work in the function scene for agencies such as Tailored Entertainments.

As well as playing I am also the Author of the book The Power of Practice - Discipline, Creative and Progressive Techniques for The Dedicated Jazz Drummer.

This is a book I am very proud of and offers the learner (from Beginner to Advance) a tailored approach to technique, refine daily practice structure, the alignment of dexterity, stability of coordination and the importance of discipline and focus.
