Expert Drum Lessons in Edinburgh

Drum Central’s teaching staff have a combined teaching experience of more than 20 years and have helped students reach a wide range of goals. Boasting a 100% pass rate on both SQA School exams and graded exams, our tutors are equally happy working within an exam structure as they are working towards personal goals.

Previous students at Drum Central have placed in the Top 40 of the Young Drummer of the Year tournaments. Other students have went on to play professionally themselves, such as Laurie Smith (Dootchi/Raintown) and Rebecca Anderson (Skjør/Mt. Doubt).

Drum Tuition from a Professional

Drum lessons are taught in two purpose built teaching studios within Drum Central in Leith. Students are able to learn on top of the range acoustic kits as well as modern hybrid kits with full recording and play back capabilities to give the best possible learning experience. If you would prefer a drum lesson at your own home this is available to addresses within 30 minutes drive from our store on Great Junction Street, Edinburgh.

We run a weekly rudiment class for £5. No need to book in advance just come along at 11AM on a Saturday and have fun!

Lessons on a wide variety of other instruments are available within the same building through Strollers Music. When possible we will work to synchronise lessons so that families where more than one child learns an instrument can come at the same time while the parents relax in the coffee shop upstairs.
