One-to-one personalised drum tuition

to suit you

North London Drums works to connect you with friendly, experienced and reliable drum tutors based in north London. The tutors mainly deliver lessons in Haringey (Crouch End, Muswell Hill, Hornsey) but also offer home visits to most of the north of the capital – including Highgate, Finchley, Enfield, Barnet, Hackney, Islington and further afield.

The tutors we represent 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 the tutors who work with us are fully DBS 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, the 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!

Thinking about taking music exams?

RockschoolLogo2

For students interested in exams, many of the 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!

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.
