Our Teaching Philosophy

I was a professional drummer for 15 years, but teaching became my true calling. Joe, a former student who evolved into a professional drummer, now joins me in this fulfilling journey. Together, we believe that every drummer has a unique beat, a personal rhythm that needs to be nurtured and developed.

We don’t follow a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we listen to your aspirations, understand your favorite songs, and identify your drumming heroes. Then, we design our lessons to guide you in building accuracy, speed, co-ordination and confidence.

Whether you’re a beginner seeking a strong foundation or an advanced drummer aiming for the next level, we’ve got you covered. Our lessons are free from the pressure of exams and grades, focusing on creativity, enjoyment, and individual growth.

At DG Drums, you’re not just another student; you’re an aspiring artist, and we’re committed to helping you become the drummer you aspire to be.

5/5
"Duke has been teaching our son drums for a couple of years now and I can’t recommend him highly enough. Duke is patient but encouraging, inspiring but not intimidating and our son looks forward to his lessons every week. With Duke’s help, our son has developed enormously in skill and confidence and have no doubt, Duke has encouraged in him a lifelong passion for the instrument."

"My 2 boys aged 8 & 5 have been visiting Joe Park at DG Drums for just under 2 months now!! They absolutely love it and are already showing signs of progress and are having lots of fun all at the same time!! Joe is absolutely brilliant with them and has a lot more patience with them than I do! 😆 They're always looking forward to the next lesson as we're driving home from the last! Can't wait for them to be fine tuned in to little rockstars and Joe Park is the man for the job!!!"

"Joe Park is one of the best drum teachers out there. He can adapt his teaching style when I can't grasp something and has the patience of a Saint! I always come away from there wanting to rush back the following week. Excellent tuition with a patient and extremely talented musician."

"I started drumming at the age of 62. I always wanted to play the drums and when I retired I decided to take lessons. At my age I wanted to learn how to play for fun, along with friends and to fulfil an ambition. After 7 months I can say I’m very pleased with Joe who understands what I want to achieve. After a few sessions Joe has adapted the lessons to suit my way of learning. His patience and calm persona have helped me to build my confidence and I now enjoy hours of drumming at home (electronic kit) with a massive grin on my face. I look forward to my sessions, learning something new, to put into practice at home. I can honestly say that it’s important to have a tutor who understands your abilities. Thanks Joe, from Billy"

"My son has been taking drum lessons with Duke for a while now, he really loves the lessons. The fact that there is no pressure to take exams, really helps. Duke is really patient and Alex gets to help choose the music, which means that he practises an awful lot. I can’t recommend Duke enough for kids who just want to play the drums and have a load a fun doing it. 10 out of 10"

"Duke is an excellent teacher, being very knowledgeable, professional, approachable and an all round good guy that will set you on the right path to start playing the drums, or improve your drum skills and musicality, regardless of your ability. Each lesson is tailored to you and you cannot fail to achieve above and beyond your own expectations. I would fully recommend Duke to anybody of any age, whether beginner or elite drummer.
