Drum Lessons and Tuition

At Darwen School of Music we believe everyone possesses a sense of rhythm that can be amplified and nurtured through learning to play drums or percussion. Regardless of your age, ability or musical preferences our drum lessons are designed around you. From rock and metal, to pop and funk, our drum and percussion students have a broad musical palette and we encourage them to explore new styles and genres.
