Studio Academy

Learn · Practice · Play

Our Studio Academy gives students all the components needed to excel and reach their full potential as a drummer. These three components are: Learn, Practice, and Play.

We have three Studio Academy Memberships to choose from.


The Academy Membership includes:

Weekly Drum Lessons

A reserved weekly slot for an Individual Drum Lesson with one of our teachers. This gives each student consistancy and regularity in their learning, and a chance to work in person with one of our top-level teachers in achieving their goals.

All grades are covered from Initial to Grade 8 from all examining bodies, as well as transcriptions of songs from different styles and eras.

Recording Sessions

Students work towards regular video recording sessions, giving them short-term goals, keeping them focused, inspired, and motivated; and also giving them experience in recording, as well as a way to archive their progress, and further assess their playing.

Live Performance

Each year students perform at a local music venue.

"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."
Sam Cooke
"These guys teach my son drums, they are totally professional but create enjoyment from music which has led to us continuing for a number of years. They are the best"
Jim Gardner
"Both my son & I have been taking lessons with John & Tristan over the years.. They are both very knowledgable & make learning drums more fun than it already is! Studios & facilities are exceptional too. Worth every penny!"
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."
Rakesh Patel
"I highly recommend Drummers Academy of Music. The teachers are all really patient and make learning the drums fun. The studios are really well equipped and having the opportunity to record a track so you can see your progress is great."
Kristy Barber
"My son is loving his drumming lessons. Very professionally run drumming school. Thanks guys."
Sarah Winters
"Fantastic, John and all his tutors are the best, couldn't recommend more highly."
Richard Evans
"My son has recently started coming to weekly lessons with Matt. He absolutely loves it. I've been very impressed so far and can already see my son's progress in a few weeks. Highly recommend. Thank you!"
