Asakusa Drum Dojo

Lesson features

We will proceed with the theme of "practical sound instruction" through the drum set.

We offer lessons for a wide range of people, from complete beginners to advanced players.
The instructors are also experienced, so you can take lessons with confidence.
Also, the drum set is one of the instruments that is difficult to practice at home.
We also rent vacant rooms that are not used in the lessons for students, so it is ideal for individual practice!
Since you spend a lot of time touching the instrument, you can enjoy a more fulfilling time.


This lesson is recommended not only for beginners, but also for intermediate / advanced students who want to thoroughly retrain from the basics and overcome their weaknesses.
