Introducing: The Thom Mills Drums YouTube channel!

I have launched myself into the world of YouTube, and it’s a wonderful and mystery place! Full of so much great advice and information, I wanted to add my spin on all things drums, as even though its a treasure trove of info, sometimes just sometimes it ISN”T!

My drumming channel is full of great content, I focus on the complete beginner drummer, I have a whole course of beginner drum lessons to take you from never having picked up a pair of sticks, to playing a sweet groove and drum fills with no problems!

I also feature behind the scenes stuff from on tour with my band Skinny Lister, live footage of the shows, and individual songs, so you can learn how to play along.

There is tonnes of other stuff, drum covers of your favourite songs and their accompanying drum lessons, cool licks from my heroes on the drums, weird grooves I like and loads more stuff, so go check it out now, and remember please subscribe, comment, like, share, it all helps me out massively, and I will be uploading new videos weekly, so helps you stay tuned in and up to date!


To whet your whistle here are a selection of my best videos to date! enjoy!


Happy new year all!

The start of yet another year, and there is plenty of exciting news and updates for the year to come.

Firstly, YouTube… This year I am aiming to put out at least a video a week on youtube, comprising of free drum lessons for complete beginners, loads of drum covers & play throughs of awesome songs, and how to play them, and also loads of behind the scenes stuff on tour!

That brings me neatly onto touring, the 4th, yes 4th! Skinny Lister record is released on my birthday 1st March, (“The Story Is…”) and we are heading off on a world tour to celebrate it. Beginning in Brighton at one of my favourite venues, the Concorde 2, we hit up the whole of the UK, and across Europe, lets hope they let us in, and then onto the USA (top secret, not announced yet) and then straight into festival season. So it’s going to be a super busy year, you can check out all the dates and buy tickets here: https://shop.skinnylister.com/live-shows

Lastly but not leastly, I am still and always offering and conducting drum lessons in Brighton & Hove and the surrounding areas. In between touring and other bits a pieces I am always teaching the drums, so if you are interested in learning please do let me know.


On Tour in the U.S. with Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls!

It’s been 2 weeks now on tour in the U.S. with Skinny Lister. We spent our first week mainly doing our own headline shows and also taking in an awesome slot at Riot Fest in Chicago. Now we have joined up with Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls and will be supporting them around the USA for the next 5 weeks. We also have Beans on Toast on the bill every night, so its a full English breakfast, lunch and dinner for the Americans! Here are my 1st two weeks as a photo diary:
