Born in Lancaster, Lancashire, Pat began receiving formal drum  

lessons at age 7 (later studying piano and percussion). After  

receiving lessons from two enthusiastic local teachers, performing  

with many youth ensembles, semi-pro gigs and reaching the  

"Drummers' Alliance" National Finals, he won a scholarship to study  

with acclaimed teacher Dave Hassell. 2 years later he turned pro,  

performing and teaching whilst based in Manchester. Pat moved to  

London in late 2003 and continues to be a very active freelance  

player both live and in the studio.
