"I have known Rob Hirons for some years now.

Besides being a fine drum set player, he also excels at education and has an honest commitment to sharing his knowledge to his students and anyone interested in developing their drumming to the next level. A fine example of what many teachers and players should aspire towards."

"I had the pleasure to share the stage with Rob...

...at the prestigious Provence Drum Camp near beautiful Marseille, France where he completely blew my mind. His original phrasing ideas and awareness of time and subdivision changes were remarkable! He gave a totally ROCKING performance!!”

"To me, Rob is a coach rather than a formal teacher...

...with whom I feel close in the way he approaches teaching the instrument. Beyond the weekly session (rudiments, coordination, independence, playing charts…), he also performs a critical analysis of my playing and pays attention to subtle aspects which help improve my playing : stick grip, motion studies, overall positioning, foot positioning, mind set…  Also the way he helps me to improve my rhythmic creativity : building solos, advice on grooves and fills in connection with the chart… I strongly recommend Rob to anyone who would either like to start drumming or would like to improve their practice.”

"I first decided to travel to France from Malaysia... 

 ...to study with Rob as my first drum teacher. He is honest, caring, knows what works and what doesn’t work, what should we pay more attention as a drummer… He explains things clearly, specifically working on Moeller Techniques. Give Rob a try and you’ll feel the same way!"

...and I was totally blown away by his musical fluency, his great technique, and his rapport with the audience, and his attention to preparation for the event. Thank you Rob for a great show!"

"My live online video lesson with Rob was just what I needed.

We were able to discuss in great detail the concepts I was working on while I was able to sit at my own kit, in my own studio. I look forward to our next one."

"In Rob Hirons I found the drum coach I was looking for. 

The quality of his holistic and professional technical approaches are the key reason for my yearly residencies in Southern France. Rob's theoretical and philosophical input and our exchange in the field of drumming is of great importance for my creative career.”
