Daisy Palmer

Big hair, big smile and a powerhouse behind the drum kit – that is Daisy Palmer! At the top of the ever-growing female drummer community, Daisy is not only running her own record label (Babylegs Records) and working on multiple original projects, she has also become one of the most in-demand session drummers in London, having worked with the likes of Goldfrapp, MIKA, Rae Morris, Hannah Peel, John Metcalfe, Vaults and many more. For the past year Daisy has toured the globe with UK Pop/Soul queen Paloma Faith, a gig where she can indulge her passion for drumming and electronics. Her masterclass is not to be missed!

Pete Riley

Pete is widely regarded as one of the UK's leading drummers and educators. He’s also known for his twenty-plus-year tenure as both contributor and CD editor for Rhythm magazine. He has authored several successful drum books and was recently nominated in the 'Best Educator' category in Rhythm magazine's online reader's poll. More recently Pete has focused his experience, knowledge and passion for educating drummers to create his own drum backing track website – Total Drum Tracks, a fantastic online resource for drummers wanting to develop and play to music. He’s played with many top artists including Republica, Keith Emerson, Guthrie Govan and recently toured Europe with the famed Corrado Rustici Trio. As the latest recruit to the WaterBear drum faculty, we are proud to welcome Pete on board.

James Purvis

He is currently involved with five different artists, ranging from electronic house music and ambient electronica to folk and trip-hop.
