About Us

Here at Rhythm Dynamics we specialise in One-to-One Drum Lessons for any age and ability, even if you have never picked up a pair of sticks before!

We are committed to giving our students the opportunity to learn the way THEY want, to help progress with THEIR ambitions and pride ourselves in our unique and personalised way of learning! What about us makes us unique?…We teach you the way YOU want!


We were established in the Darlington area but also provide Drum Lessons throughout the North East of England in areas such as Durham, Newcastle, Newton Aycliffe, Shildon, Middlesbrough, Yarm, Billingham, Hartlepool, Stockton, Ingleby Barwick and more!

We operate from fantastic Music Facilities in Darlington and both Durham and Newcastle City Centres. However if you prefer to learn on your own equipment we can come to you!

We can offer you help with any aspect of your playing drums, whether you…

  • Want to start a new hobby and have never played before
  • Want to be able to play along to music from a particular band 
  • Wish to restart a previous interest in playing drums
  • Want fresh inspiration on your current studies
  • Want to learn to play drums for a bit of fun to jam with friends or join a band
  • Want to study grades to gain UCAS points for a university place

Whatever your needs and aspirations we can help and take you forward!

Learning to play any musical instrument should always be fun and we ensure each and every lesson is as enjoyable as possible! We strive to get our students playing alongside other musicians in order to develop their performance skills and we host annual showcase nights to give our students an opportunity to experience a live stage.

We have taught children as young as 4 through to fully matured adults, both male and female and of course all of our teachers are fully DBS checked. Our impressive library of teaching material allows us to teach well known that you will recognise! Names such as Queen, The Beatles, U2, Muse, Oasis, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bruno Mars to name a few!

We can help you to both read and write music in an enjoyable way, provide an insight into playing many different musical styles and even boast a 100% Pass record with the UK’s leading exam boards. Recently we have started using Trinity Rock and Pop exams which are fantastic goals to work towards.

OliverWe can cater for everyone no matter what your aspirations are and what you want to work towards.
