About Colin

Colin Woolway Founder of the Drumsense Programme Colin Woolway has been playing and teaching drums professionally since 1976. During those years he has done every kind of gig including theatre pit work, Jazz residencies, Cabaret and Variety shows, eight years with Suzi Quatro, and every kind of situation, from stadium tours with 30,000 people at every show, to scout huts and muddy gardens - you name it, he’s done it.
