Dave Nato Drummer from Hastings

Dave 'Nato' Hazlewood

Drummer & Author from Hastings, UK. 

Having started playing drums at the age of 8, I haven't stopped! From pubs and clubs to large international festival stages, I have gigged and toured all over the world for over 30 years with lots of bands and recording with just as many. Today, I play for my own band '4th Wall' and dep and record for others. Specialising in rock and punk, I also love industrial, goth and dance and use electronics alongside my acoustic drums.

From the year 2000, I have been teaching drums and established 'Tunbridge Wells School of Music' which I sold in 2023 after building it up over 20 years. I also produced the 'Backbone Drums' drum teaching syllabus which is used by teachers and schools all over the UK and beyond. 

I'm always up for a new challenge so please drop me a line if you want to discuss a new project, gig, tour etc. I am still available for lessons too and will gladly do home visits in the Hastings and Rye area.
