About Seattle Drum School

Seattle Drum SchoolFounded in 1986, the Seattle Drum School has established itself as the premier vocational music school for drum set, guitar, bass, voice, piano, horns, and musical studies in the Northwest.

From beginners to professionals, we offer instruction for people of all ages and from all walks of life. Our programs include valuable information and experiences that provide our students with the necessary tools, confidence, and inspiration for becoming professional musicians, college music majors, or for pursuing music as a fulfilling hobby. You’ll learn from some of the most distinguished musicians and teachers in the area.

In addition to music instruction SDS is home to the SLAB, a 60 seat all-ages music venue at our Georgetown location. Its purpose is to provide a safe, positive, and inspiring environment for musicians of all ages to explore and share their passion for music!
