The Drums

at the drumroom 

My Vision

My vision is to teach everything a student will need to be a modern drummer. From my years of experience in teaching and performing, I will set everyone who enters The Drum Room on a journey to successfully learn this amazing musical instrument. Most of all I guarantee every student will have a lot of fun in every lesson they step into.
Yamaha Music Points and Music Schools have been successfully delivering and developing a high standard of teaching across the UK for over 45 years. Finely tuned resources and teaching methods allow the enjoyment and high achieving outcomes to go hand in hand. At The Drum Room, every lesson is prepared and intricately planned in advance for each student’s development whilst integrating the studio’s fully “decked out” Yamaha equipment.


Group students 7+ years old & upwards (groupings will be age and ability appropriate)

1 to 1 5+ years old & upwards


All abilities are welcome from beginner / intermediate /advanced / audition preparation.


All resources are aimed at improving dexterity, co-ordination, listening skills and musicianship.

Preparation work towards exams is available through the Yamaha and RSL (Rockschool) syllabus.

The examinations are not compulsory.



Group tuition (1 hour duration) = £14.00 per student (4 in a group)

1 to 1 (30 mins duration) = £16.00

1 to 1 (60 mins duration) = £32.00

*Prices to be reviewed annually in line with the Musicians Union recommended fees.
