Drumming Lessons in the West Midlands

The Midland Academy of Drumming (MAD) is a privately run drum school that offers exceptional one-to-one drum lessons in Birmingham and surrounding areas. We cater to people seeking drum lessons for beginners right up to touring professionals.

Founded in 2008, MAD was set up as the result of a collaboration between professional drummers Andy Edwards and Dave J Mason. Today, the academy has become one of the busiest and most prolific drum schools in the West Midlands today.

Our students travel for the drum lessons from all areas of Birmingham. These include Dudley, Wolverhampton, Bromsgrove, West Bromwich, Smethwick, Redditch, Sutton Coldfield, Stourbridge, Solihull, Kidderminster, Bridgnorth, Telford, Walsall, Worcester and many more.

We proudly endorse Tama drums Dream Cymbals Aquarian drumheads and Rockstar Skins.

Drum lessons should be awesome. Not okay. Not Good. Awesome. And we do our absolute best to make sure that it stays that way. We offer more than just drum lessons. We are 100% committed to you and the rest of our drumming community.

How do we do this? Simple. It all boils down to our passion for providing the absolute best value that your money can buy. We’re obsessed with adding extra value wherever possible. Whether it’s free wifi, free drinks & refreshments or even priority access to prolific drumming events.

Drum Lessons = FUN

It’s important to remember that you are learning drums for FUN. It can be all too easy to forget this fact when you push yourself to develop such a complex new skill. And let’s not forget; it’s a well known fact that we learn better when we enjoy the process. Nobody wants to spend their drum lessons snowed under with technicalities!

That’s why we have such a strong focus on making your drum lessons FUN. Come in, sit down, let’s jam together and practice that exercise to some music!
