How much are drum lessons?

This depends on how long you want the lesson to be:
 

1 x 30 min = £25 (one-off)

4 x 30 min = £92 (instead of £100) Recommended for younger learners

1 x 45 min = £37 (one-off)

4 x 45 min = £136 (instead of £148)

1 x 60 min = £50 (one-off)

4 x 60 min = £180 (instead of £200)

Do I need to bring anything?

We will provide you with everything you need during the lesson. You may want to bring your own sticks if you prefer as well as any grade books or resources we have given you from previous lessons. 

What do we cover in lesson?

Our lessons are tailored to the students ability and are designed to steer you to towards your drumming goals. Our syllabus covers everything for complete beginners to more advanced players. We typically start with some warm up exercises to develop technique with the rest of the lesson geared towards grooves, songs, grades or anything specific that you wish to learn. 

Which payment methods do you accept?

We accept payment via bank transfer or cash.

Missed lessons and cancellation policy

If you need to cancel or reschedule your drum lesson, it's not a problem. Please give at least 24 hours notice before the start of your booked lesson, otherwise we will need to take payment in full. Block bookings or 4 lessons must be used within 6 weeks of the first booked lesson. 

What can I expect in the 30 min trial lesson? 

If you've never played drums before, it's a perfect opportunity to come down and give it a try and see whether you like it. It's also really beneficial for us to meet face to face and to answer any questions you might have. If you've been playing for years and you're looking for a drum teacher, it's also great for us to hear you play, so we can identify your strengths and weaknesses and discuss how you'd like to move your playing forward. Book your free trial drum lesson.

Do you offer group lessons?

We can accommodate drum lessons for groups of 2. Learning drums with a friend can be great fun and a good way to begin. We have 2 kits set up in the studio, so you can play along simultaneously. Contact us to find out more. *There is a £10 extra charge for group lessons 

What's your availability?

The studio is currently open 7 days a week and drum lessons are available anytime between 9 am - 9 pm. 

I want to learn a particular style, can you teach me?

That being said, if you're a complete beginner, we'll be starting off with the basics, so don't be disappointed if we don't get to that super fast punk or traditional jazz groove just yet. By laying down the foundations in the correct way, you'll be well-equipped to tackle your favourite track in no time. 

Am I too old to start drum lessons?

We get asked this question a lot, and the answer is you're never too old! Some of our most successful students of recent years have been newly retired, or their children have just left home and they're looking for a new interest or hobby to fill the free time that they didn't have before. It's a great way of developing new skills and keeping fit and active. 

Is my child too young to start?

We find that our drumming lessons are generally suited for children aged 5 and upwards. Music Mission also teaches in primary schools across London and has a syllabus designed especially for younger learners. We recommend booking your child in for a trial lesson with us and see how they get on by clicking here. 

Do you teach actual songs?

Yes. One of the most rewarding things for students is to finally be able to play along with their favourite tracks. Before approaching the song that you want to learn, we'll first make sure that you have the skills to tackle your chosen track, or maybe simplify some of the harder parts to begin with. 

Do you teach grades?

Yes, we do prepare students for graded exams. They are a great way to measure progress and it is particularly useful for younger learners to have something to work towards. We highly recommend and teach from the Trinity Rock and Pop syllabus. It's brilliantly laid out, the backing tracks are very well done and it has a more contemporary feel than some of the other grades on offer. Grades are certainly not mandatory though! 

Will I be your only female student?

Absolutely not. We get asked this question a lot and at least half of our current students are female. Girls are just as good as guys when it comes to playing the drums, so don't be put off by any stigma that might be attached to it! 

What if I've never played before?

Absolutely not. There may be a few bad habits that you've picked up along the way, especially if you're self-taught. We'll initially work to correct these areas in your playing. From there we'll carry on just as any other lesson, focusing on making you the best drummer you can be. 

I've been playing for years, will you make me start from scratch?

Absolutely not. There may be a few bad habits that you've picked up along the way, especially if you're self taught. We'll initially work to correct these areas in your playing. Following that, the first lesson will be mostly spent going over some pieces so I can assess your current playing level. From there we'll carry on just as any other lesson, focusing on making you the best drummer you can be.

Do you offer online lessons?

We currently do not offer online lessons. 

Do you offer a discount for block bookings?

If you would like to book a larger block of lessons the best thing to do is get in touch to find out more.
