Have you ever wanted to become a professional drummer? Or study drums at a deep level with someone of the greatest working musicians here in Berlin? 🤔

We have a couple places still available on our ‘Weekend Pro Training’ course starting January 2024! 🥁

Run by Dirk Erchinger (Apache 207, Count Basic, Jazzkantine), we bring the best drummers in Berlin together to share their insight into the styles, technique, skills and the all-round attitude that a drummer needs to become pro.

Over two years, you’ll spend one weekend every two months in our teaching room surrounded by drummers diving deep into songs, styles, technique, iconic drum parts and learning about the instrument we love.

It is perfect for those who don’t live in Berlin or have a really busy schedule and also want to go deeper into drumming from a range of working professionals here in Berlin.

Drop us an email at [email protected] if you are interested and to get your free ‘Test Training’ with one of our lecturers 🤘🔥

And feel free to send this post to someone you think might be interested!

Scroll for some of the best drummer faces from the 35th International Drummer Meeting Salzgitter! 🤪

The 35th International Drummer Meeting Salzgitter is over and we feel so proud and honoured to have co-hosted this great event alongside International Drummermeeting Salzgitter once again!

In the last three days, drummers from all over the world came together to study from the greats, jam together, bond over a cold drink in celebration for our love of this instrument.

It was a jam-packed weekend with incredible masterclasses, live performances, crazy solos, percussion circles and tons of inspiration from some crazy motherf*cking drummers.

And then the weekend finished with an awesome concert from all our lecturers that turned into a spontaneous drum circle featuring Official Thomas Lang, Larnell Lewis Music, Christin Neddens, Dirk Erchinger and Ralli Lewitzki

There is something very special about being a drummer and these drum weekends. A group of drummers get together as strangers, nerd-out over their shared love for drumming and leave feeling connected to new people because of this instrument.

It’s something you can only feel from being going to one of these drum camps.

We are already excited to get planning next year’s International Drummer Meeting and the Berlin Drum Days 2024!

So if there’s anyone you want to see, let us know down below! 👇

And finally, these events are a lot of work to put on and are only possible thanks to the companies who support us to bring drumming education from some of the greatest players/educators at an incredibly affordable price!

So a massive thank you goes out to Yamaha Drums, Meinl Cymbals, Drum Workshop Inc. (DW Drums), Remo Inc., and Latin Percussion

And thank you to the incredible Rüdiger Knuth for capturing the weird faces we make behind our instrument 📸 😉


Another year of our Pro Training comes to a close and we couldn’t be happier to see seven fine drummers graduate our school 👊

Over the last 12 months, this group has grown so much as individuals and as a collective and we are so proud to be a part of that on our Drumtrainer ‘Pro Training’ course.

For us, this didn’t feel like work. It was a pure joy to play and teach drums with these young drummers. The course aims to give drummers all the skills they will need to go out into the world and make a living as a professional drummer and one of the most important skills in your arsenal is your attitude.

And this group behaved exactly how professional musicians should: respectful and helpful with each other, fun to hang with, dedicated but easy going at the same time. We can’t wait to see where their careers go from here!

But this doesn’t end for us… Next week, we’re welcoming a new batch of drummers to put them through an intensive year of training and growth. We’re excited to see what they’re gonna bring! 😉🤘


🚨 Our Thomas Lang bootcamp is SOLD OUT! 🚨

We are so excited for Official Thomas Lang to be back with us in Berlin to nerd-out about technique, get philosophical about why we create art and to simply hang with one of the greats.

If you missed out and still want to study then head to drumtrainer.online, where we have 5 courses with The Lang and a special summer discount where you can get a year’s membership for just €50 👊

Tour with Apache 207 is done and dusted 👊

It all started back in Chur, Switzerland in 2021, when Apache was looking to build up his live show and ended on Saturday night here in our hometown at the iconic Waldbühne Berlin.

Our Drumtrainer Marschkapelle had the privilege of touring across Germany & Austria playing 3 tours, 46 shows in 24 cities in front of tens of thousands of screaming fans.

Not only did our founder Dirk Erchinger lead the marschkapelle for two years, he joined Apache on stage behind the kit and laid it down for 7 songs in the set alongside Mark Grund living out their childhood rockstar fantasies

It has been a wild ride and we feel nothing but gratitude towards Volkan, Feder Musik and DreamHaus, who have been so professional and courteous to us across the last 2 years, including us as part of their family and welcoming 5 drummers with open arms.

And a massive thank you goes to our endorsers Rohema for helping us sort out 95 Drumtrainer bottle openers as our thank you gift for the crew and Yamaha Drums for providing all the drums & electronics for the tour ❤️

The Lang is back.

On October 9th one of the most prolific drummers alive right now will be here teaching a 4 hour masterclass filled with intense chop-training, drum-nerding, a**-kicking, and noodleing.

He needs no introduction, we have all seen what a monster Thomas is behind the drums and how great of an educator he has been to the drumming community across the last decades.

Thomas has worked with Robert Fripp, Paul Gilbert, Peter Gabriel, Robbie Williams, Kelly Clarkson, and Sugababes, and released a ton of great educational materials on top of everything else.

You’ll get the chance to study here with Thomas in an intimate setting (limited to 15 people) in little over a month. Tickets will go on sale first to our mailing list tomorrow then to everyone else a few days after.

The Berlin Drum Days 2023 begins today and our festival of drumming will be co-hosted by these two incredible musicians Mario Meruna
and Simeon Cöster

Mario has been obsessed with the drums since he was just three years old, devoting his life to the craft and after graduating from the Popakademie in Mannheim he moved up north to Berlin to pursue his career.

He teaches here at Drumtrainer and is currently on tour throughout Germany, Switzerland and Austria with Gregor Hägele and Kati K.

Simeon is the drummer of Isolation Berlin, owns his studio here in Berlin ‘Protopop Studios’ and is our ’Sound & Tuning’ lecturer on our Pro Training course.

Simeon has also produced, engineered and mixed all of our Drumtrainer Online courses with Thomas Lang, Larnell Lewis, Nate Smith and all the other legends. He will be running a tuning masterclass this year and make sure you bring two drum keys 😏

How Herbie Hancock conviced Mike Clark to take the gig! 🥁

Tonight we're posting the full story over on our YouTube channel () of Mike sharing his stories from the Herbie Hancock days and how he got the gig through his roomate and best friend Paul Jackson!

It was such an honour to host Mike all those years ago. He is one of the most charismatic drummers out there, who is still playing at the highest level and such a great hang - until next time Mr Clark! 👊

Phrasing is everything when it comes to keeping your improvisation musical.

And we have a whole lesson on exactly this concept where Snarky Puppy and Ghost Note's drummer Robert 'Sput' Searight shows you how to build a solo and improvise in a melodic way just like this.
