Showcases

Performing is an essential part of being a musician, which is why we encourage all of our students to perform at our showcases. These are held throughout the year at a local venue, building confidence and community, by performing to friends and family.

One of the most important elements of developing as a musician is practicing. We make sure all of our students have a clear practice plan after each lesson, to keep them progressing towards their goals.

Testimonials

"My son is thriving at Drummers Academy of Music in Letchworth. He has been attending weekly lessons for a few years since being an absolute beginner and has sailed through the grades with the guidance of the professional drumming teachers. I will continue to recommend this venue for all ages and abilities."
Suzie Godfrey
"My son has been attending Drummers Academy for a few years now and enjoys his lessons and practice. The team have adapted to his needs, been kind and understanding, pushed and encouraged and made the whole process fun. He looks forward to lessons and for him drumming plays an important part of his life, more than learning an instrument. The team are terrific, talented, friendly and I would recommend them to anyone."
Steve Andrews
"My son has been attending lessons here for the last few weeks as a complete beginner. He absolutely loves it and his teacher has been brilliant. We’ve been really impressed with the progress he’s made already. He looks forward to the lessons each week. Highly recommend."

Thulsi Crosina
"My lessons are one of the highlights of the week! My teacher is awesome (Ive some one-offs with other teachers here and they've been great too). I'm an adult, and a music fan, trying to get serious on this great instrument. This has been the perfect place, I've learned loads and enjoyed it so much."
James Stevenson
"My son has been learning to play the drums for several years now. I also joined with him (I practice but no longer have lessons) and highly recommend the studio. Tris gets a special mention for his dedication and passion to helping others learn. Good to also see the studio expand their offering with supplementary online lessons, studio sessions, workshops etc."
