Drummin Skool

About Us

DRUMMINSKOOL specialises in teaching beginners to intermediate level students. No previous drumming or musical knowledge is required, and age is unimportant . We tailor a personal tuition programme to your individual needs, whether you are aged 6 or 60+, male or female.

At the first lesson we will assess your ability, discuss your requirements and goals and agree a study programme. We will take you from being an absolute beginner, to playing drum rhythms within just a few weeks of study and practise. We believe that absolutely anyone can learn to play the drums. Some students will be able to play a basic rhythm from the very first lesson.

We provide one to one, private drum kit lessons to private students in the comfort and privacy of your own home or business establishment. We work to fit in with your busy schedule. We also provide drum kit lessons in local Primary and Secondary Schools on a peripatetic basis

DRUMMINSKOOL provides the most convenient, cost efficient and time-saving way to learn to play the drums!

Our approach is very informal and friendly and we encourage all students to learn and progress at their own pace, without pressure!

At DRUMMINSKOOL we never lose sight of the fact that:

Drumming is FUN!

Drumming is KOOL!

Teaching Programme

Read More

Our teaching programme is wide ranging and determined by the requirements of each individual student. We cover all essential rhythms used in the most commonly played musical styles (typically rock and pop), and cover everything a student will need to become an accomplished player. This can cover any or all of the following areas:
The Role of the Drummer, Drum Rhythms, Fills and Breaks, Essential rudiments, Double bass drum, Styles and Famous Drummers, Independence and Co-ordination, Counting, Reading Music, Time-keeping, Soloing, Playing to a Click/Sequencer, How to get gigs, Practise Tips, “Must Know” songs and grooves, Equipment advice and drumming history.

Drummers are musicians too and DRUMMINSKOOL aims to have students playing music as soon as possible. Students are encouraged to play along with “music minus drums” tracks, to play along with some of their own favourites and ultimately to play in a band of their own.

School Teaching

Read More

We also teach in schools on a peripatetic basis, and, if required, we can supply drum kits as well. We are also currently working on group/class tuition courses. Coming soon we hope to offer workshops in African and Samba drumming, suitable for all ages. In addition we have an exciting, brand new snare drum corp workshop due to be launched early in 2011. These courses are designed to build team work, confidence and communication skills in a fun environment

If you are a school head, or in charge of a music department and need a professional, reliable drum teacher, please call to discuss your requirements.

We are also pleased to provide after school clubs and would be happy to help with school musical productions if required.

Convenience /Safety

Read More

Some people wanting to learn to play the drums have been put off by the prospect of visiting a drum studio, either by the inconvenience, or by feeling self-conscious or embarrassed. DRUMMINSKOOL students realise their ambitions in private, in their own relaxed environment.

Our customers avoid the cost, wasted time and stress of travelling to a drum studio. No need to battle the traffic, struggle with parking, and queue in a drum shop, “waiting your turn”. A one hour lesson in a drum shop/studio may sometimes take 2 or 3 hours out of your day!

Lessons for children need not inconvenience parents at all! We simply turn up and teach your child at your home at the agreed time – parents can carry on with their regular routine (or sit in and listen – you may catch the bug yourself!!) Plus, there's no need for your child to venture into the city centre alone when you don't have the time to take them.

For your peace of mind all Drumminskool teachers have an enhanced CRB certificate.

Optional Exams

Read More

Students may wish to study for the Rock School or Guildhall/Trinity Examinations (Graded 1-8). These comprehensive, graded courses give young students a goal to aim for which encourages practise, rewards success with a qualification, and motivates students to reach their potential. Drumminskool students have achieved a 100% exam pass rate, many with merit or distinction grades

Drum Kit Hire Sales & Advice

Read More

Students will normally own a drum kit of their own, however this is not essential initially as it is possible to make some progress without a drum kit. We do have drum kits to hire should you want to have a taste of drumming prior to committing to buying a kit of your own (Either per lesson or longer term).

If you “get the bug” and decide to progress, we offer advice on buying drums and cymbals, and occasionally have kits for sale. We also have very good relationships with local drum shops who will offer professional independent advice to our students.

Terms & Conditions

We respectfully request for 48 hours notice if a lesson needs to be cancelled. Lessons cancelled without notice will be charged for.
