The Drum Forum is a place to get together with like-minded drummers learning drums in London and discuss drum-related topics.
The topics to be discussed are decided at the previous forum session and the sessions take place about every 3 months at one of the Elephant Drums studios.
This season’s forum topics are below. The session is informal, refreshments are provided, and it’s open to current members. Please sign up via your teacher if you’d like to join the session.
