About Al’s Drum School


About Us​

Al’s Drum School was born out of the desire Alex had to bring his love of drumming to people who wanted to play. Alex has had a long and successful career as a professional drummer and has found an immense amount of joy and wellbeing from pursuing drumming as a career and he wanted others to feel that same power the drums had to offer.

While teaching a wide range of students throughout his career, Alex saw the amazing benefits that drumming could bring to someone’s life even as a hobby. Like when a young boy grows in confidence and is able to show and tell his friends about his amazing new musical skill, or when a student in her mid 50s was able to perform with her favourite local band after wanting to play the drums since she was a teenager. These special life moments are why Al’s Drum School was born.

Our Mission

Even before its inception Al’s Drum School was always destined to be more than simply another place to go and learn an instrument. With our on-demand learning, courses, Platinum Mentorship Programme, podcast & more we’re paving the way for Al’s Drum School to become the number one drumming community in the country.


We know how important your teacher is to your learning journey. We believe the teachers here at Al’s are the best, and they’ve all been hand picked for their skills in not only drumming but teaching and building good relationships with students. 

We’ll meet you where you are on your journey and our goal is to help you fall in love with playing the drums and work towards whatever goals you have. We can teach you everything from grades, songs, styles, and mentoring you in your drumming career.

Alex, Chris, Guy and Riley are all working musicians with a tremendous amount of experience and expertise in playing, gigging, teaching and touring. They all love sharing their wisdom so your lessons will be something you enjoy and get excited about!

We hope you love the teachers as much as we do, they’re all fully DBS checked and if needed please reach out for more information.
