Having the right drums teacher is everything

When it comes to learning the drums, the tutor will be by far the most important and influential figure in a student's musical development, so having the right person is paramount to becoming the best musician one can be and actually having fun in the process!

One of the things that makes learning with Lycaeum so great is the tremendous amount of care we take when we select the relevant tutor for each student.

Our drums teachers

All our drums tutors are professionals or late stage students from London’s top conservatoires, such as the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, and are all DBS checked, so you know you will be in very good hands!

In order to teach drums lessons for Lycaeum, our tutors must first pass a series of thorough personal checks and interviews, and show the relevant experience and expertise not only as professionally trained drums virtuosos, but also as tutors in various educational settings. Additional skills beyond mere competency on the drums are a must, such as patience, organisation, and very good empathetic listening

We only work with the top 10% drums tutors in London!

Drums lessons online

If price is a concern, or if it’s simply not convenient for you to welcome a tutor into your home, we also offer private online lessons for up 50% less compared to face-to-face lessons.

Our online drums tutors will create a bespoke learning experience for each student, whether children or adults, for as cheap a price as can be found in the UK for this level of tuition.

All our online drums students will of course still benefit from our great range of events, concerts, competitions, and group courses. You can always upgrade to face-to-face lessons whenever you feel ready!

Drums lessons in Catford, SE6

Despite the famous fibreglass sculpture of a cat that sits atop the entrance to Catford Centre, the name ‘Catford’ dates back to Saxon times, being the place where cattle crossed the river Ravensbourne. Broadway Theatre, built in 1932, still stands—a grade II listed building that regularly hosts a mix of live performances, including music concerts.

Drums students based in and around the SE6 are fortunate to live in one of London’s most exciting neighbourhoods with its range of amenities and opportunities. Drums lessons in Catford are widely available, and are taught by some of the best tutors in London.
