Exam Success.
Well done to all those who have passed their RSL Drum Exams. It is nice to see a diverse mix of ages taking formal examinations.

We are celebrating 10 Years of Service since we launched back in 2014. We have provided valuable tuition to hundreds of students from all over Derbyshire and beyond. Enabling those with disabilities access to award winning drumming sessions has provided valuable personal development to so many. We have had hundreds of students thrive in drum exams and have set very high teaching standards. 

It has been over 1 year since we relocated to our new premises in Derby Cathedral Quarter. We have been delighted with the amazing response from our awesome customer base and have formed great new relationships with the local community in the area. The new premises is central heated and is a clean professional environment. It’s also got a lot of character as it’s a Grade 2 listed Georgian Era building. Free onsite parking comes as standard, with a dedicated MM Drum School® parking bay for customers to use. WC, Fast Wi-Fi and facilities are available on site. We offer our students the unique opportunity to learn on ultra-high end ‘Roland V Drums’, which opens up a very exciting range of new possibilities for students to explore. All sessions are delivered in our high-tech state of the art music room. We are delighted to facilitate over 100+ students each week.

Thank you all for your ongoing support!

"MM drum school has been amazing for our son. My 7 year old son has autism & Michael & his brother Matt are just fabulous with their friendly approach. The environment is completely relaxed with a non judgemental feeling. Michael’s relationship with my son has meant that the lessons can be tailored to his needs and capabilities.  I can’t praise these guys enough for being so accommodating...great team!!" 13th September 2020

"I can't thank the MM Team enough for their amazing work they have done to help my 9 year old daughter. She used to be very shy and since attending sessions at this school she has come on leaps and bounds." 21st May 2018

"MM Drum School, centrally located in Derby is a real gem. Tuition is versatile, with opportunities to learn all styles and even play in a band format with other musicians. The approach is also friendly and shows a genuine interest in the best outcomes for all students." 25th October 2014

"Learning as an adult I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I've tried a few places out and decided to study at MM. Their approach is fun and I felt at ease. It's more than just a drum lesson, we have a good laugh and learn to play cool tunes at their new facility in the Cathedral Quarter in Derby" 9th March 2023
