Merton Music Foundation

PERCUSSION

We are incredibly proud of our thriving percussion department at MMF, offering children drum and orchestral percussion lessons with a wide variety of bands and ensembles for every ability. What’s more, you don’t have to be having lessons with us to join an MMF group.

We run drum kit lessons in many Merton schools and at our Music Centre at Harris Academy in Morden where we also offer orchestral percussion lessons. Most of our bands and groups rehearse at the Music Centre with some of the beginner ensembles rehearsing at Crown Lane Studio in Morden.

Below is a list of our groups which welcome percussionists.
