All are welcome at American Drum Company!

At American Drum Company, our mission is to share a passion for drums and the history of drums by educating the public in the various percussion styles and through community service with non-profit groups, as well as through our museum.

Our Facility

Owner, Tom Evans, designed a versatile new studio space for our drumming needs. Our custom facility offers 4 practice rooms, each with a live feed so you can watch your student from the waiting room. ADC provides a large open rehearsal area for group classes or performances and a one of a kind drum museum.
