"Playing fast around the drums is one thing. But to play music, to play with people for others to listen to, that’s something else. That’s a whole other world" – Tony Williams

Specialist Drumming Tuition

As with all lessons at Progress, Drum lessons Birmingham are conducted using our unique methodology where each lesson is completely personalised. Lessons are geared towards the student's learning style, musical tastes, goals and targets. Your progress will be constantly monitored by your tutor and Progress Music Academy and will be adjusted and tweaked along the way to tailor you with the most appropriate learning pattern and guarantee results!

Drum Exams

As Progress is Birmingham's only Trinity Rock and Pop exam venue, then you can choose to work toward one of the official exam grades and take the exam right here! Grade books are available from Progress for customers. Not everyone chooses grades though, so we will work with you generally to achieve your goals in whichever way you like. Lessons will include a certain amount of musical theory and note reading too but again this can be adjusted to suit.

Online Drum Lessons

Our drum lessons are available in person at our Birmingham studios, or you can now take an online drum lesson from the safety and comfort of your own home. Our online drum lessons are conducted via Zoom.

For the experienced or beginners in Metal, Jazz, Rock and more

So, if you're a complete beginner or you're aiming for that big audition, then we can work with you. Our fun, friendly and inspiring lessons get results really fast! All musical styles can be taught from Rock, Metal and Pop through to Jazz, Funk and Latin taught by some of the Midlands most experienced drum tutors and musicians. See the meet the team page for more.
