Hello my name is Matt Raymond and welcome to my website. I am a professional drummer and drum teacher.

I have been playing the drums for 25 years and have 20 years performing experience as well as 15 years teaching experience. In that time I have had the pleasure of playing for quite a number of different artists including Tony nominated and Grammy nominated performers. 

I have studied music since I was a child and have a first class honours degree in music performance from Drumtech (LCM/UWL) and a masters degree in music performance from the London College of Music.

I'm based just outside London in Kent and currently working on a freelance basis.

I'm always looking for any playing or teaching opportunities be it gigs, tours, sessions etc. So please get in touch if you need a drummer or drum teacher. 

During the coronavirus crisis I have started teaching online if you would like to try an online lesson please get in touch.

"Matt Raymond is the consummate professional:  great chops, great swing, great reading skills and great fun on the bandstand.  Matt’s an asset to any band."
