Salisbury Drum Centre brings together a selection of experienced drummers who are all passionate about playing and music education.

We aim to provide the opportunity, inspiration and facilities to discover music and unlock the potential to play it. From complete beginners to more advanced players we offer a range of lessons and lesson plans to suit. We also encourage anyone who just wants to have a go at playing drums to come and have some fun. We don’t make students do grades but if you do want to then we can offer the Trinity College London and Rock School curricula or provide support for GCSE music performance. We are here to help you on your own drum and musical journey and have fun in the process - we don’t do boring!

Our tutors are vetted, insured and have DBS checks.
