Education Room with Mike Johnston

Following his outstanding appearance at The UK Drum Show back in 2018, we’re massively excited to welcome back the incredible Mike Johnston to The UK Drum Show 2020, where not only will he be bringing his immense skills to our main stage once again but also joining The UK Drum Show team as the resident host of our new Education Room.

This new feature for 2020 (and beyond) will see Mike, along with a host of further world-class drum educators at the very top of their game, delivering FREE lessons over the course of the weekend, giving visitors the chance to truly learn from the Pros. Each lesson is scheduled to last 45 minutes, and places are strictly limited to just 150 per session. Pre-booking is required, with registration for places opening soon.

PLEASE NOTE that in order to partake in any of the lessons, a general admission ticket for The UK Drum Show is required.

As one of the world’s foremost drum educators, Mike Johnston needs very little introduction: he currently runs one of the world’s largest educational website for drummers,, where he offers live and pre-recorded drum lessons. He also hosts 10 drum camps each year at the studio in Folsom California. Alongside this, Mike has taught and performed at hundreds of clinics and drum festivals over the past 13 years including the Meinl Drum Festival, P.A.S.I.C., The UK Drum Show, The LaBag Show in Paris, and countless others.

Stay tuned to our social media and updates on this page for lesson content, educator guests and how to book.
