Who are we?

The Planet Drum is one of Europe’s major institutions for drum and percussion education. We’ve been providing high-quality and affordable music tutoring for students of all ages and backgrounds since 1996.

‘One of the best schools in London for anyone, young or not so young, who aspires to learn the art of drumming.’ - Rod Youngs, jazz drummer

What do we teach?

Whether you’re a complete stranger to a pair of drumsticks, or an experienced drummer looking to brush up on your brush technique, we have the right course for you.

At The Planet Drum, you’ll be taught by a professional musician in a vibrant and creative environment. In your first session, you’ll discuss what you want to achieve by the end of the course, so both you and your tutor can work towards your personal goals.

‘I have been taking lessons at the Planet Drum for four years, and having worked with all their teachers I can say that they are all top class. Their structured and fun approach has really worked for me and thanks to them I am now an infinitely better drummer than I ever was. Highly recommended!’ - Thibaut Pfeiffer

As a Trinity College Public exam centre, we also teach the Trinity curriculum should you wish to take graded exams.

Where are we?

You’ll find us in the crypt of St. Mary Magdalene’s church in Islington, North London.

‘Planet Drum has a real "drum family" feel to it. All the tutors and students working in the same way to play great drums and music. A truly inspiring place to learn.’ - Martin Johnson, pro drummer

We also offer private tutoring sessions in the following locations:
