About MD Drum Lab

I’m Marc Danecker a professional drummer and musician based in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. I set up MD Drum Lab because as well as performing, I have a passion for teaching and team building activities.

Ever since I was 12 back in 1996, and remember sitting behind a drum kit for the first time, I knew exactly what career I wanted to pursue and I have never looked back. For me drumming isn’t and has never ever been just a hobby, it’s been a passion and I love to share that passion through my students and team activities.

I teach to all ages and music tastes, so maybe you just want to learn your favourite Rock tune or maybe Hip Hop’s your thing, whatever your music preference is I will teach you. You may want to learn something more serious with the aim of working towards grades, I will get you there!

Drumming isn’t about being noisy and hitting hard, it involves what I describe as the “three ation’s”…… concentration, co-ordination and dedication, teamed with lots of fun thrown in for good measure. Anyone can hit a drum, but it takes a certain person to make it look and sound cool.

If you are interested in a Team Building Activity event or ice breaker, we cover the whole of the United Kingdom, please feel free to get in touch for more information or visit the information page at the top of this page.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my page, enjoy the site and please contact me for all questions/enquiries.

    Marc has been teaching me for two years. He makes every lesson fun, he never puts me under pressure. I learn something new every week and he allows me to pick which songs suit my taste which makes the lesson more enjoyable.

    I would thoroughly recommend Marc for any tuition with drums. My daughter has progressed so much in two years to now taking her Grade One, which I never thought she would get too. She looks forward to every lesson and Marc makes sure he gets the most out of her musically.

    I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Marc a few years ago. I’ve always found Marc to be a very, very, passionate drummer. Some people fall into their vocation and some were born to do it..Marc falls into the latter. He loves every second of his work and this always rubs off on anyone who is around him.

    If you want to learn how to play the drums and ‘enjoy’ it at the same time….? ,then Marc is your man. Years later, I’m fortunate to call Marc my friend. I can only work with nice people, real musicians, who love what they do, Marc has that in abundance.

    Marc has done a great job in teaching our son the drums. Not only has he learned to play an instrument it also helped improve his self confidence – thanks Marc. Marcs lessons are always fun and enjoyable. I look forward to them every week.

    Marc is a great drum teacher! Marc’s love and enthusiasm of drumming is clear for all to see and is particular evident in his teaching to his students. My son of 9 years has not only developed and progressed with Marc’s teaching , he has now developed his own passion for drumming . Whether playing for fun , composing your own rhythms, or wanting to undertake gradings – I would highly recommend Marc to anyone.

    Marc has been teaching my daughter Gaby drums for 3 years. I can highly recommend Marc and I can honestly say I’ve had no problem with him at all in those years. Gaby loves her lessons each week and has never wanted to miss any of them. Marc is reliable and organised and gently encourages his pupils to bring out the best in them. Playing the drums has given Gaby more confidence in herself and she has flourished with Marc ‘s kind but most of all fun approach to teaching ?

    Marc is a great drum teacher. He has enthused our son unlike the previous chap who was purely interested in grades. While Marc will teach grades, he loves to see the student enjoy their drumming. How refreshing! The fact he also dresses like a teenager and uses excessive hair products just adds to the appeal for our son. He is worth the hero worship.

    We had looked for some time for a drum teacher, Marc came highly recommended, he has now been teaching my son for just under 2 years. Marc overall enthusiasm and professionalism makes every lesson most enjoyable and something my son is always looking forward to. I cannot recommend Marc highly enough, not only is he a great teacher but he is also a thoroughly nice individual who has become a family friend.

    Marc is a brilliant teacher. He shows attention to detail and is very patient as well as making learning the drums great fun. He is encouraging and brings the best out of my son. He has learnt so much over the last year and is making excellent progress.
