One to One Drum Tuition West Midlands
One-to-one drum lessons are ideal if you are looking to work towards achieving grades or if you feel you’d benefit from a lesson more personally tailored to you. You can expect to learn to read drum notation and practice exercises that allow you to see a meaningful progression in your skills each week, whilst also learning to play the pieces that you enjoy.
Learning drums on a one-on-one basis is also ideal for adults or children with special educational needs or those who are less confident as part of a group. We offer both 30 and 60-minute sessions.

ADULT AND KIDS DRUM LESSONS
Individual drum tuition is ideal for students who wish to work on their grades and practice specific pieces, or for children with special educational needs who may benefit from a more focused learning environment. We offer both 30 and 60-minute sessions.
Whatever age and whether learning through group or individual tuition we offer to train pupils for exams. Working towards a goal like this can help teach children to focus and the sense of achievement when passing grades is always a thrill. We work with several different syllabuses, including ABRSM, Trinity and Rockschool. If you have previously learned pieces for an exam elsewhere we can provide the exam for you (excluding ABRSM).
GROUP DRUM LESSONS
Our group drum tuition sessions last 60 minutes and take place on both weekdays and weekends and with only four drum kits in a room, you can be sure of still receiving a personal and bespoke experience. We firmly believe learning should be fun and as with all our teaching, we want you to enjoy what you are learning. Playing drums in a group can be a great way to build self-confidence and a good way to fast-track learning techniques, whilst still learning notation and completing practice exercises.
ONLINE DRUM LESSONS WEST MIDLANDS
We also offer drum lessons online over Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp or Facebook for times when it may be difficult to make it to the practice studio, and we ensure that you still receive the same high standard of tuition over video. Students learning online can expect to progress just as quickly as meeting face to face and we can arrange lesson times to fit around you and your family’s schedule.

DRUM LESSONS FAQS
What is the best age to start learning drums?
Take a look at our blog post IS MY CHILD READY TO PLAY THE DRUMS? Come along for a free taster session and Our teachers will be able to determine if your child is ready to play. Normally, children start 5 years old we have smaller drum kits to ensure there is nothing holding them back.
Do you teach adults to play Drums?
At Pro Music, we believe anyone of any age can start drumming. Adults are very welcome to learn to play the drums with us. We have hundreds of adults attend our sites per week. Many have always had the desire to learn and feel it’s now time to do something they have always wanted. If you have the passion and the time to practice you can certainly achieve your goals.
We also have adults who like to start learning with their children as it is an activity they can enjoy together. Many parents become inspired by their own children learning an instrument that they get involved too and eventually start having lessons. Before they know it, what was an activity for their child becomes something that now connects the family even more, as it gives parent and child a joint interest. There is no greater buzz for us at Pro Music to see how music brings people together.
I am an absolute beginner, what do I need before my first drum lesson?
When you feel you are ready to buy a drum kit take a look at our blog post CHOOSING YOUR FIRST DRUM KIT or speak to your teacher for advice.
What are the best books for helping me with my drum tuition?
At Pro Music, we double as Rock School and Trinity examination centre so there is no need to worry about where you will need to travel to for your music exams.
How many drum classes would you recommend in a week?
How can I help my child to progress more quickly in their drum lessons?
We would advise that 15-20 minutes of practice a day is more than enough to help your child progress. It would be a good idea to make a practice plan and do a mixture of drum technique practice and letting your child learn to play a song they enjoy. As your child improves it will encourage them to push themselves further.

How long does it take to learn the drums?
The time it takes to learn drums varies widely based on natural aptitude, practice consistency, and musical background. Generally, primary rhythms and beats can be grasped in a few weeks to a few months of regular practice. Proficiency in more complex patterns and styles might take a couple of years. However, mastery is an ongoing journey that depends on dedication and continuous learning. Patience and consistent practice are crucial to becoming a skilled drummer, regardless of the timeframe.
Top tip: The sooner you start, the sooner you can play. Nothing is gained by putting off your dreams.

Drum Tuition Testimonials
"My son comes here for drum lessons and my daughter for piano. Tom was very helpful in accommodating my request to find me tutors at the same time for both instruments. Andy is a great drum teacher and Marie thought my daughter to start reading music in two weeks, she's a great piano teacher who continues to challenge my daughter to learn more each week. It's a bit of a drive but worth the journey each week. Thank you." Marian Amy
"My son started drum lessons here with Dhana just before Christmas. We were a bit unsure at first if it would be worth it as my son has ADHD and really struggles to concentrate but from the very first lesson Dhana showed fantastic patience and understanding. He works at my sons pace calmly and never overloads him with too much information at a time which means my son has now started playing rhythms and reading the music from a book. I really couldn't be happier with the service provided. Michelle Casado"
"My daughter has been having drum lessons with Andy for over two years and absolutely loves them. The teaching is excellent and fun and she's been really inspired to carry on even when it gets tough.
Top quality teaching and and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Pro Music. Debbie Ansell"
"George has been having drum lessons with Josh for almost 2 years, and has really developed his ability to perform on a wide variety of musical styles having no former experience. In his own words George says his lessons are enjoyable and fun. Josh is very patient and dedicated to the technical aspects, and has motivated George to push for great musicianship. Even during lockdown, progress continued well with virtual lessons. The studio is a great environment to learn in and would highly recommend Pro Music. Jenny Little"
"My Daughter has recently started drum lessons with Patrick. Her confidence has soared and she has completely fallen in love with drumming. Patrick is a fantastic teacher, he is extremely patient and has a wonderful way of demonstrating and explaining all areas of drumming. Thank you, would definitely recommend!" Rebecca Parker
"Joshua our drum teacher is wonderful! He is patient, encouraging and approachable. My daughter who is shy around new people has taken really well to him, he was so understanding and let her come around. Such a great place to let kids or adults learn new skills and hobbies! Cheryl Ames"
"My son has made fantastic progress since working with Tom on his drums, his first instrument was the guitar, but now he had propelled forward and is motivated to learn at a quicker pace and a higher level on his drums. Tom is always looking forward, setting achievable targets that keep my son engaged and interested. We have been blown away at the quality of teaching we have seen and experienced. It is a cut above and gets excellent results. My only regret is that we didn’t start here sooner. Thank you so much for all that the teachers do, particularly for preparing the kids for the exams in such a professional manner week ahead. We wholeheartedly recommend pro-music - Lillybet Anne"
"I've been having drum lessons with Andy for almost 4 years and would highly recommend him. He's flexible and patient which is really good for an adult learner like me, as well as willing to indulge my whims on different songs and different styles. Lessons are the highlight of my week." Gil Lian
