Trial Lesson, Free of Charge


We believe it takes a session for the student and teacher to decide if they are a good fit for one another.

All you need to get started is a pair of sticks and a clear file folder for your music, along with a practice pad for practicing at home. A drum kit should only be purchased once a student has completed at least one term of lessons with Auckland Drum School.



Rockshop Discount.


AKDS has partnered with the New Zealand Rockshop to offer a 10% discount on all Rockshop purchases. We use and recommend brands stocked by the Auckland Drum Shop, located at 106 Karangahape Road, Auckland.



Terms and Conditions.


Drum lessons are held during the school term.

Lessons are held consecutively.

Lateness will result in your lesson time being reduced accordingly.

In the event that your regular teacher is unable to attend a lesson, Auckland Drum School will either provide a substitute teacher or reschedule the lesson.

All lesson fees paid in advance are forfeited in the case of student absence.
