Ready to play drums

Always wanted to learn drums?

Do you find yourself tapping along to music, or maybe your child loves nothing more than banging a wooden spoon off some pots and pans? Drum lessons might be the best instrument to try. We love to teach drum lessons at BSM, from beginner drums through to advanced level, everyone is welcome.

Beginner Drum Lessons

Start drums lessons at BSM and we will have you playing the songs that you love straight away. We teach each student a range of foundational skills to help them become a great drummer. Students will learn basic techniques and how to read music, which is an important part to becoming a good musician. Students can either play for fun or progress by taking an accredited exam with RSL awards or Trinity Rock and Pop.

Intermediate / Advanced Drum Lessons

As you progress on the drums it will open up more opportunities, students usually progress to performing on stage, joining one of our rock bands, or working towards an exam. Many students however are just eager to keep improving. Students can progress through learning and understanding various techniques, rudiments and learning a variety of styles.

Our tutors are experts and if exams are your thing, we will help you get the right syllabus that suits you. Many students aim to take an exam and we structure lessons to support this, teaching across all of the main exam boards and the various syllabuses on offer.
