One-to-one personalised drum tuition

to suit you

My name’s Jack and I represent a bunch of friendly, experienced and reliable drum tutors based in north London. Our tutors mainly deliver lessons in Haringey (Crouch End, Muswell Hill, Hornsey) but we offer home visits to most of the north of the capital – including Highgate, Finchley, Enfield, Barnet, Hackney, Islington and further afield.

Our tutors teach students of all ages – from six to seventy six (!) – and with the rise in popularity of drumming amongst the adult population there hasn’t been a better time for anyone to start.

Our students’ aims range widely – from working through an academic grade syllabus, to live/session work, or simply playing for fun after harbouring a life-long ambition!

All of our tutors are fully DSB checked, qualified at a degree level minimum and are members of various industry-recognised societies such as PRS, PPL and the Musicians’ Union.


Sessions built around you

Every student has their own personal goals and ambitions. Whether it’s aspiring to be a session drummer or simply wanting to play along with backing tracks at home, our tutors tailor the lessons to suit you.

Session plans can range widely – from beat building, rudiments/technical exercises, to click/metronome work, independence, composition, ear/aural training, soloing, time signature exploration, modulations, synchronicity, and much more. You can even look at how to build your own drum beats!

No pressure, with or without exams


For students interested in exams, our tutors predominantly teach through the RSL Awards/Rockschool syllabus, which gives you the opportunity to achieve a grade 8 level (with additional UCAS points). We have specialist tutors who know the syllabus like the back of their hand – and so will you before the exam day!

However, exams are only half the story; we believe that no student should be pressured to take exams and many can progress more positively without.

Tutors regularly coach students through live performances, auditions, GCSE/A-Level performances, tour preparation and will happily help you with any personal statements or references for further education.

Beginner Crash Course

 Two initial lessons for the budding drummer, at a discount!

I was really pleased to get a beginners crash course voucher for Christmas as I always leave gigs saying that I want to be a drummer. This experience was really good as I was able to start playing along to a track pretty much instantly!``

Learning to play can seem quite daunting so why not try it out with two sessions to get a feel for what it's all about!


The ideal package for any budding drummer – from the curious player to the person who wishes to fulfil a lifelong ambition!


The package consists of two sessions, usually set a week apart to let everything sink in so you return with a fresh pair of ears.


People often book the crash course as a birthday or Christmas present. Let us know and we'll personalise a voucher!


The tutor will get you to pick up the sticks pretty much instantly and go through the all basics you need to get started.


Tutors will answer any questions so you can double check what was covered or find out more about the tuition itself.

Student Stories
