Drum Lessons

"Why drum lessons? Perhaps it's not for the faint hearted, but drums can be enjoyed by anyone, with boundless rhythmic complexities. For those who press on, there is no instrument like it. You are in command."

Having drum lessons can offer multiple opportunities into band involvement, from rock band to brass, jazz quartet to full orchestra. A musical group of any size always needs someone to hold them together. In terms of endurance and physical strenth, it can demand both!

At Booths, progression is encouraged through the RSL exam program, though this is not essential by any means. It does, however, offer a documented progress of a student’s acheivement and offers some fantastic opportunites to gain “playing live” experience.

Drum Lessons For All Ages & Abilities​

The Drum studios have been designed and built to the specific needs of each different drum tutor. They feature acoustic kits, speakers or CD players as well as various accessories and percussion instruments on hand in order to aid progress. Instructional, inspirational DVDs can be accessed if required.

Along with our normal acoustic kits, we also have the latest Zildjian low volume cymbals and Remo Silentstroke heads that are perfect for playing with dynamics whilst keeping the volume lower. These have allowed us to have more drum lessons taking place at the same time whilst keeping the neighbours happy!

"Great shop run by great family oriented folks. My son takes drum lessons with James who shows great patience and care. Long tradition and presence in Bolton. They don't use inferior kit to teach on, will always try to adapt to your wallet in recommending the best books, kit and instruments. Truly skilled folks"

"I think I've been going here for the best part of 10 years, and honestly I do not regret it at all. I've been taught the Drums and the Bass here by excellent teachers. The owners and the staff here are friendly, and make you feel welcome. They do good deals on gear and instruments. Would go here."
