Online Drum Lessons

First Drum Lesson Free!

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 we are having an increasing number of students opt for online drum lessons, these are a great option for people who have no option but to work from home or would rather not venture into the middle of Manchester for a lesson at the studio.

These work exactly the same as regular lessons but from the comfort of your own home, meaning you can have a drum lesson no matter whereabouts you are in the UK.

These are great for experienced players and beginners alike. All you need is a laptop or mobile phone, Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, Facebook video, Facetime etc and a decent internet connection and you're good to go. If you have a drum kit, we can drum lessons the same way a one to one lesson would work, if you don't have a drum kit NO PROBLEM get yourself a practice pad and there are lots of independence exercises to learn which are great for beginner to advanced players.

I host these lessons from my studio so you'll hear the same drums I use normally, all through top quality microphones. All notes and lesson materials are emailed to you so you have them instantly. If you want to know more about these lessons or had any other questions please use the contact me form below.

What our students say

  • "Mike is a great teacher, fully understanding of what I want to achieve and adapting the lessons to suit my pace (yet always challenging). Every lesson is very rewarding at just the right levels and keeps me developing at a nice pace. Mike is also just a really nice guy, making the lessons an absolute pleasure!"

    Jim Walker - 7 Year Student

  • "I've been having lessons with Mike for 6 years now. Having no prior experience with drumming Mike has been really patient in teaching me over the years. He's very easy to get along with and always makes the lessons fun. Highly recommended 👍"

    Aimee B - 6 Year Student

  • "I did a two day intensive session with Mike. He quickly understands your situation, pitches his exercises perfectly, plus he is patient and thorough. The intensive days are very well planned and his original materials complement his abilities as a natural teacher. Highly recommended!"

    Andrew H - 2 day intensive course

  • "I had a five day intensive drumming course with Mike and was incredibly impressed with his skills as a teacher. Within a very short time he knew exactly where my many weaknesses and few strengths lay. I learned an incredible amount during the week, Absolutely first class."

    Lexy Anderson - 5 Day Course

  • "I've been learning with Mike for about 4 years now. He's a great, patient teacher and a dead nice guy. Highly recommend!!"

    Rose M - 4 Year Student
