About Us

The Alternative Drum School first opened its doors in May 2008 teaching Drums and Percussion. The school prides itself in having an alternative method of teaching the age old art of drums in a fun, funky, modern way. We have pupils aged from just 4 years right up to 93 years - the oldest drum pupil in the UK!


We provide specialist training in the form of flexible one to one lessons in which all skills are taught to improve and control your playing, preparing students for both the challenges and opportunities of today’s music industry.


Whatever you want to achieve with your playing, The Alternative Drum School is able to provide it.
