Ipswich Drum Tuition
Professional Drum lessons
Ipswich Drum Tuition began in January 2020 and is run by Dan Jacobs.
Dan has been a drummer for over 20 years and graduated from Drum-Tech in London in 2001 with a Diploma in Music Performance focusing on the drum kit.
With an extensive knowledge in music theory, Dan has been teaching students in schools, colleges, from his studio and in their own homes.
He’s a member of the Musicians’ Union and has a current DBS certificate.
Drum tuition mainly takes place at the Ipswich Drum Tuition premises, however, if you’re unable to travel to the unit we may be able to travel to you.
Please contact us with any questions or to arrange a lesson.
Drum lessons are paid for in advance as either a block of ‘3 x 1 hour lessons’ or ‘6 x 30 minute lessons’ @ £30 per hour
The Ipswich Drum Tuition premises has plenty of room for friends/family, who are more than welcome to ‘sit-in’ on the lesson(s).
Earplugs are FREE and MUST be worn when the drum kit is being played. FREE tea and coffee is also available, as is plenty of reading material.
Group tuition will hopefully be available in the future
