DRUMSCHOOL wants you to become a

GREAT MUSICIAN... who just so happens to be a drummer!


All DRUMSCHOOL tuition is on a one-to-one basis and therefore is tailored to individual needs within a general structure that can include the Trinity Rockschool OR Trinity Guildhall courses if required as well as so much more!


A music festival can have all shades of musicianship ranging from the ‘newcomer bands’ with young musicians, right through to established artists backed by the finest of seasoned session musicians but who all share the same stage.

Therefore all DRUMSCHOOL courses aim to appreciate the validity of all these abilities, styles and shades whilst encouraging attainment of the highest levels of performance and professionalism.

However, for most it is very satisfying just to see your own progress with a more structured course approach, as outlined below.
