Drum Set & Percussion Lessons in Toronto

Since 1994, Soul Drums has been committed to having the most comprehensive drum set and percussion education in the Toronto area. We teach in person lessons in our drum school at Leslie and York Mills, and also offer online lessons through Zoom or FaceTime. We are located on Leslie Street just south on the 401 in Toronto.

At Soul Drums, we pride ourselves in offering the highest quality of drum lessons and percussion lessons in the greater Toronto area. All of our lesson rooms are equipped with professional quality drum sets. We use professional quality percussion from REMO, MEINL or LP and traditional African DJEMBES in all of our private percussion lessons.

Lessons are offered Mondays through Saturdays. All teaching staff are professional musicians capable of providing our students with the fundamental skills necessary to explore all musical styles: rock, jazz, R&B, funk, latin, metal, punk, world-beat, etc. Students of all ages and skill levels are welcome.

Our teachers include Rich Greenspoon, Max Trefler, Altaf Vellani and our program director and Remo Artist, Doug Sole. All are well versed in all styles of music, but each has a specialty that will cater to the more advanced student. What draws drum enthusiasts to Soul Drums, in addition to our drum set lessons, is our keen interest and passion for world percussion.
