The world of drumming is an exciting place filled with endless possibilities. Whether you are a beginner or a professional drummer, our lessons have a lot to offer. We offer both private drum lessons and group beginner drum lessons to cater for you or your child’s needs.

At The Music Works, our Yamaha Drum Encounters course makes learning the drums in a group easy and enjoyable. Private students get full access to the excellent Rockschool Drum grade books. Our comprehensive curriculum is designed to accommodate all skill levels, so whether you’re a complete novice or someone looking to advance their skills, we have something to offer. Our experienced drum teachers are dedicated to guiding you through each step of the learning process, ensuring that you develop a solid foundation in drumming technique and musicality.

One of the key benefits of the Yamaha teaching method is its emphasis on developing musical ears. We believe that being able to listen to and respond to the music around you is essential for any drummer. Through a series of ear training exercises and rhythmic exercises, you’ll learn to recognise different musical patterns and develop a keen sense of timing. This will not only make you a better drummer but also a well-rounded musician overall.

At The Music Works, we cater to all music genres. Whether you are into rock, pop, jazz or metal, our drum instructors are well-versed in all these styles and more. We’ll teach you the techniques and skills you need to play the music you love most. Our drum instructors will customise the lessons to align with your musical preferences, ensuring that you receive the necessary skills to excel at your drum kit.

If your goal is to pursue a career in music, our course can help you achieve your dreams. We offer the option to study for graded exams, which can provide you with recognised credentials, or you can choose to learn purely for personal satisfaction. Regardless of your objectives, our passionate and committed tutors will collaborate with you to assist you in reaching them.

For more experienced players, we also offer weekly Band Skills sessions, where students can learn how to play in a band with other like-minded individuals. Our bands have many opportunities to perform each year and due to this consistent exposure to improving on their instrument, students often excel when studying their instrument and band.

Even if you’re just looking to learn to play drums for fun, our Yamaha Drum Encounters course can cater to your needs. Our experienced drum teachers will work with you to develop a learning plan tailored to your individual goals and preferences. We offer a flexible and affordable pricing structure for our drum lessons, so you can choose a learning style that suits your needs and budget.

Learning to play the drums is a fantastic experience, filled with excitement and endless possibilities. The skills you’ll learn on your drum set will help you develop your sense of timing, boost your creativity, and give you the ability to express yourself through music. Even if you’ve never played an instrument before, our Drum lessons are designed to help you achieve your goals and unlock your full potential as a drummer.

So what are you waiting for? Join our drum classes today and embark on an incredible musical journey! Whether you dream of performing on stage or simply want to jam with friends, our drum lessons will equip you with the skills, and self-assurance to become the drummer you’ve always wanted to be.

Still not sure? Here's more info about The Music Works:

  • We have been delivering music lessons in our local area for over 12 years! Through industry experience and by making sure we work with some of the best music teachers in the area, we have grown to see hundreds of students every week for lessons.

  • We are a Yamaha Music School, which means only the best teachers can work with us. Teachers are fully vetted with the usual safety and rights checks (enhanced DBS child safeguarding etc) and are also interviewed by world leader Yamaha, to make doubly sure that they are great at what they do! Once they have passed the interview stage, they receive yearly training to make sure they continue being awesome.
  • We are a not-for-profit company that cares about our students. We want to see every student reach their full potential and are here to guide them if they need our help. If you need any guidance at any point, please get in touch.
  • Every student gets a chance to perform! Throughout the year we are a part of several large scale events, such as Haslemere Fringe, where we give our most promising students the opportunity to get valuable performance experience. You will also see us at smaller events, such as school summer fairs and discos, where we offer our services for free to help our local community. Students can join in with our open mic nights too!
  • Every student can learn how to be in a real, live band! We offer fantastic weekly Band Skills lessons at our Milford Centre and in several Partner schools, where students can learn the ins-and-outs of how to work well in a band setting. They will learn great songs, how to work in a team, build confidence and socialise with like-minded individuals. Every year our bands excel and join us on the biggest stages, where they perform to audiences of hundreds and sometimes thousands of people. It really is incredibly valuable musical experience at such a young age!
