Adult Drum Lessons Sydney

Drum lessons at Bondi Music School teach adult students that no matter what age, anything is achievable with practice and application of the techniques and approaches taught.


At Bondi Music School we aim to motivate beginners on all instruments by showing them the big picture to playing music. With drum lessons that generally means achieving a level capable of performing with a band. We support this by holding regular public performances that allow students to see how it feels to be Dave Grohl.

Intermediate and Advanced

Intermediate and advanced drummers are taught a range of skills which will allow them to perform in bands with full confidence in their own abilities. Our drum teachers will analyse technique used by students and look to improve it’s fluency and efficiency. This will lead to tighter and more dynamic playing amongst other improvements.
Our teachers are knowledgeable in a diverse range of styles including Jazz, Fusion, Rock, Pop, Metal, Progressive, and even some extreme styles such as Math rock. Depending on their personal ambitions, students may choose to focus on one or many styles.
