Starting off in the front room of his house, founder John Graham began teaching as regular income in the irregular life of a musician. Demand started to outweigh space, so rather than having a waiting list  John hit upon the idea of getting one of his advanced students to teach beginners.  

The number of students expanded, and so did the number of tutors, all with the U.S.P. of being current or previous students at John the Drum School.   In 2011the school moved to it's own premises where it is still. We have three teaching rooms and a busy roster of students of every age and stage.

We at JtDⓈ care about doing it right. Just because you play well doesn't necessarily mean you can teach. Many have come to us because their previous experience of tutors has been negative for one reason or another. With the unique way we get our tutors, it means we are all singing from the same songsheet, and the handpicked nature of the tutors means that quality is assured.
This means that we not only can take students right from the start of their journey, we also have the ability to mentor, tutor, and introduce those wanting to take their music to a higher stanard - beyond that of the current grade system. 
We have seen students of JtDⓈ move into the professional arena but also those for whom playing drums has simply become a passionate hobby. The JtDⓈ team has the complete package with decades of combined playing, recording, and tutoring experience to the practise. Whatever stage you're at, we are confident we can point you in the right direction.
