Why Learn The Drums?

Spark that musical passion for you or your child in a fun environment that encourages musical development, co-ordination and mental wellbeing. Whatever your goal, whether it be starting your own band, going to music college or to simply have a new hobby, Abbie can guide you and give you the knowledge to succeed. If we’re on lockdown, we might as well have fun! 

Learn from a Drum teacher with 15 years playing experience in the comfort of your own home or in Brandon, Durham. Lessons can also be online via Zoom or Teams. Abbie caters for all ages and abilities and has a full DBS check.

North East Drum Lessons:

Areas covered include, but are not limited to: Durham, Newcastle, Gateshead, Chester Le Street, Bishop Auckland, Newton Aycliffe, Darlington and everywhere in-between! 

Lessons start from £20.


‘Abbie’s teaching has reinvigorated my Charlie’s drumming, they’re loving drumming again and making amazing progress, I couldn’t be happier!’ _ Michael Wood-Williams.

‘Abbie is a great teacher, who is patient, capable and highly responsible. It is a great pleasure to learn drums from her.’ _ Yao.

‘Abbie’s been a fab drum teacher for my 14yo son. She really knows her stuff and is kind and patient. Even teaching over Zoom hasn’t fazed her. D’s had about 20 lessons with Abbie now and even from day 1 she was spotting things about his technique and getting him to quickly improve. He’s at grade 5 level and has much more confidence in his instrument now.’ _ Chris Thomson.

Durham and Zoom Drum Lessons: 

Abbie is based in Brandon just outside of Durham city centre, where lessons can take place. This is especially good if you don’t yet have a kit at home or want to have a taster lesson. 

She can also do lessons online via Zoom or MS Teams to anywhere in the world, so don’t be afraid to get in touch if you are outside of the North East.
