Why Study Drums at BIMM London?

Thinking about studying Drums? Why not find out more about the place where the clashing of cymbals and cracking of snare drums has been echoing throughout since 1983? 

Before we were BIMM London, we started life as the world-renowned Drumtech: a dedicated Drums teaching centre. With all this history, it’s no surprise that we have one of the best Drum departments in the country.

Tech talk

If you’re a drum head who knows their seven stroke rolls from their paradiddles, then you’ll be right at home. You’ll be taught in one of our three drum studios which are decked out with high-end equipment like iconic Zildjian cymbals and Gretsch award-winning kits topped with Evans’ pioneering drumheads.

You’ll be able to practice in one of our five specially equipped acoustic drum booths, all sound-insulated so you’re free to let loose. You’ll then perfect your performance chops and play with other bassists, guitarists and vocalists in one of our three live performance rooms.
