About us

thePlanetDrum is an international drum and percussion school. Wanting to pass on his own musical enthusiasm and techniques to beginners and advanced students alike, Mirko Schmitt founded thePlanetDrum in London in 1996, together with his partner Alain Maurel. In 2003, Mirko brought thePlanetDrum to Germany, and built it up into the largest private percussion school in Berlin. thePlanetDrum now has studios at five centrally located sites in Berlin.

What makes thePlanetDrum special is our enthusiasm combined with our proprietary teaching method, our thePlanetDrum curriculum. The result is a relaxed atmosphere that sets us apart from the typical music school.

We do everything we can to make your time together into an unforgettable experience.”
