Shaun Kelly is Studio 99

Shaun began playing the drums in his early 30s, which some might say makes him a late starter.

However, what he has missed in his youth has more than been made up for – he is passionate about playing the drums and has dedicated time to become a technically competent drummer.

Since his drum journey began Shaun has always had professional tuition – he has been a regular student of Dave Williams, an East Midlands based professional drummer,

Shaun has also studied under Steve White, former drummer with the Style Council and now Premier’s Head of Education.

Continuing his journey, Shaun still receives tuition in a wide range of genres from professional drummer, Geoff Fry.


Shaun is based near to Burton-upon-Trent and will tailor lessons to suit individual needs, whether they be complete beginners or more advanced and wanting to work towards grades.

Shaun has an enhanced CRB (DBS) for working with children and young people.

Shaun spends much of his free time playing in a Derbyshire funk and soul band, as well as depping for other bands as required.
