Dye House Drum Works is a drum school and drum shop housed in purpose built premises at Leicester’s Quad Studios. Brainchild of local teacher and player Lee Allatson, hourly drum kit lessons are available for all levels of ability and experience:
- Getting started – drum lessons for beginners
- Drumming for fun or working towards a graded exam
- Developing reading skills (score and TAB)
- New ideas and styles
- Addressing bad habits and initiating fresh approaches
- New, advanced coaching sessions for exam and audition preparation
With some 30 year’s playing experience – 20 as a professional educator, Lee teaches on a one-to-one basis and aims to help you find and develop your own voice on the instrument through a student-led approach:
“With the Dye House Drum Works school, I wanted to build a modern, bright, well equipped and fun place to learn for all ages, backgrounds and playing goals – whilst also keeping lesson prices affordable. Our strong relationship with the Quad Studios complex has meant we can keep our hourly weekday rate to just £19 – which remains one of the best you will find anywhere and represents excellent value for money. Each student who walks through the door here has a unique musical agenda – I see our role as developing an exciting and productive learning structure around this core.”
We have a fully stocked, in-house drum centre for all your drum equipment needs, currently viewable by appointment. New and used kits, cymbals, hardware and accessories – See the Drum Shop page for more information or just give us a call!
