Drums make the world move

Drumming requires incredible coordination, a solid sense of time, and plenty of precision and finesse.

Throughout your ICMP Drums course, you’ll also gain access to everything from rehearsal rooms, top-brand gear, and recording studios to industry events, masterclasses, and a one-of-a-kind community of contacts and collaborators.
