BMA’s drum tutors offer drum lessons in Preston and Penwortham, tailored for the individual. All drum lessons take place on our Roland TD4 or TD6 drum kits which are integrated into a sound system to play with backing tracks. Rock school exams are organised twice a year with pupils from beginner level to advanced all abilities are catered for.
Our resident Drum tutors include Jim Askam, Rick Kershaw, Colin Hendra and Nigel Stewart. Our drum tutors teach between the Broughton and Penwortham Academies, so you can be assured we’ll fit your style of drumming to the correct tutor. Over 60 drum pupils at the academy come from all over the Preston, Lancaster, Blackpool and Fylde areas and our drum tutors also join together with other areas of the academy to perform as rock bands for events around the Preston and Lancashire areas, giving the pupils opportunities to play as a band.
Drum Pupils also have the opportunity to Perform in our Shows which take place twice a year at the Preston Playhouse Theatre as well as other local events.
Pupils having Drum tuition also have the opportunity to record in our recording studio.
Our Drum lessons take place on a Monday to Thursday evening (4pm-9pm) and also on Saturdays.
