Dean Hendy has been playing the drums for as long as he can remember and played his first gig at the age of 14 years old. He started playing the drums at a very early age, playing by ear and jamming along to all of the family’s record collection.
After having lessons from a great drum teacher, who goes by the name of Luddy, he started to read music and open up his mind to experience different genres, playing styles and cultures that has helped him become the player he is today.
He decided to further his training by taking lessons from a few of the UK’s top drum tutors, whilst working with various cover bands on the nightclub and holiday camp circuit.
Since breaking through as a session musician, Dean has performed with countless theatre shows, tours, leading tribute shows and featured on recordings of different styles of music from orchestral all the way through to rock. Dean has supported a host of professional artists and celebrities.
As well as a session player to add to his busy schedule, he performs clinics and masterclasses around the UK.
Dean is also a member of Drummer Magazine’s prestigious tuition team.
