Dylan McCormick Moran

"For me Drumming was an outlet I needed to express myself. Growing up in the midlands, the facilities that was necessary to foster growth in young Drummers wasn't there. So I travelled to Dublin for my Drumming education.

I studied Drums with the incredible Mark Grist and completed all 8 Rockschool Drum Grades with Distinction. My passion for Drumming led me to gig throughout the country and record for major record labels.

At the age of 18 I became all Ireland Champion and with a focus on founding a Professional Drum School became officially registered as a teacher with RSL Awards. Through my reach on Social Media I have received support from industry leading brands such as Vater Percussion,

Cympad and Audix"
