Exciting things are happening at Northern Beaches Drum School. We have finally moved into our new location at 34/ 42-46 Wattle Street, Brookvale. We will still continue to offer the same quality service at our new address.


We will be continuing to improve our premises and thank you for your patience during this time.

There is a cafe in our complex so take advantage of a hot beverage while you wait. Also, Westfield Warringah Mall is down the road, so too are buses and local businesses.

We appreciate your support.


We are excited to announce that NBDS will be moving to a new location in Brookvale mid 2019.  While the old location has served us well, and we made great memories and music (including our very first Drum Day) there, we couldn't be more excited about our new space.

It has been an exciting 13 years for NBDS, and we look at this new location as the start of new chapter in our history.  When we are up and running, we'll be hosting a happy hour for students (+18) and parents, so those in the area, can stop in and say hi!


Wow! Our inagural Drum Day was a great success! We would like to thank all the parents, relatives and friends for all their support with our students over the year. We had over 300 guests attend this year, which was a tremendous turn out.

As predicted by the Manly Daily, The Northern Beaches Drum Heads certainly raised the roof when they preformed to ACDC's "Thunderstruck"! Not only did it look spectacular but the sound was huge!

The adults preforming in the medley, well done! As much as it is nerve racking being on stage, you took it in your stride and sounded fantastic! We were all very proud.

I would like to thank our teachers for their continued excellence and dedication to teaching. Although another year is dusted, We are already planning an even bigger event. Check out our gallery for some photos of the day.


Residents of Allambie Heights might want to cover their ears at around 11am tomorrow. One hundred students from Northern Beaches Drum School will get together to play AC/DC's Thunderstruck at the Allambie Heights School Community Centre. Director Phil Eades said way of giving students experience in performing for an audience. The large group, called Drum Heads, had rehearsed for the past two Sundays. The 100 drummers, who are all aged under 18, include 17 girls. "I'm very proud of how far they've come" he said. "We're just trying to make a bit of a spectacle out of it and give them some performing experience". He chose the popular rock song because of its many drum sections. “I thought 'wouldn't it be great to play it all together?", he said. "It's a hard song with unusual timing but they've done so well." Mr Eades said the annual end-of-the-year concert had grown in size, from 64 last year to this year's 100. "It keeps getting bigger in scale," he said. "We wanted to get to three digits."
