About Mike Dolbear
Mike has been a professional drummer for over 30 years having studied with some of the greatest teachers including Kenny Clare, Max Abrams and Bob Armstrong. He has worked in a variety of musical situations, including studio, TV, musical theatre and backing cabaret covers bands, and continues to contribute to the global drumming community.
After ending a 10 year residence at The Talk Of London, Mike set up his own studio in North London teaching and helping many professional students and teachers including Joe Seaward (Glass Animals), Cherisse Osei (Simple Minds, Bryan Ferry, Mika), Kapil Trivedi (Mystery Jets), Steve Forre
st (Placebo), Mark Richardson (Skunk Anansie), Emily Dolan Davies (Bryan Ferry, Tricky) and Glen Power (The Script) just to name but a few.
In October 2011 Mike was asked to co-ordinate, audition and teach the 1000 drummers for the London Olympics 2012 opening ceremony, an experience that he says was one of the highlights of his career.
“To coordinate that number of drummers and then play on what is reported to be the biggest TV audience of all time was a true honour and one that I will never forget”.
After the Olympics, Mike started getting known as the guy to do “big mass-drumming features” and worked for UEFA to co-ordinate the 500 drummers for the UEFA London champions final at Wembley in 2013.
In 2014 Mike had a call from Hans Zimmer to co-ordinate the drum features in Hans’ first ever solo concerts in London featuring Johnny Marr, Lebo M and Pharrell Williams.
