Drum-tech vs ICMP vs ACM


Junior Member
I'm am 16 years and living in Portugal. After I finish college I have planned to go back to the UK and study drums in one of these schools... but i don't know which to "choose".

I've been playing drums for nearly 4 years and been having private lessons with one of the best in the whole of Portugal (little as it is) Marito Marques

but i am so confused not only about the schools but also the qualifications (A levels and what not)

Are the teachers good at those schools??

All the best


I did the One Year Diploma at Drumtech a good while back. If I had my time over I'd spend the money on one-on-one lessons with a good teacher.

Look on the webstes. They should answer all your questions. Also try to get a private lesson with some of the teachers at each of the schools.

ACM is very flashy, the substance of what they do doesn't totally match up to the way they try and portray themselves. There are some good people there, but it's a bit hit and miss as to what you get. I didn't do drums there, I did a music production course.
