It’s not just hitting things!
Everyone knows that drummers are the coolest kids in the band, FACT! They’re often stuck at the back of the stage but, without the drums, the band would fall apart. Ever watched a drummer and wondered how they are able to get everyone in the audience grooving along with them? Well, wonder no more, we’re here to help you learn how!
Whether you’re dying to just jam with your mates and want to learn some cool drum grooves to get you started, or you’re interested in contemporary music grades, or you need some fresh inspiration for your drum parts, songs or performances, we can cater your drum lessons to your needs. Playing the drums is a great way to get creative, de-stress and relax in your spare time.
The drum lessons will give you the chance to really learn the role of the drummer – we don’t just keep time, you know. We can make or break a song by what we choose to play or what we leave out. So, you’ll be shown your way around the drums through:
- Learning, developing and maintaining solid, healthy and relaxed technique.
- Exposure to many different grooves in a wide variety of contemporary styles.
- Creating dynamics efficiently and without excess tension.
- Developing your ear and learning to play what you hear.
- Musical application and use of various rudiments.
- Recognising and understanding the different characteristics that define different genres of popular music.
- Improving 3-way and 4-way coordination between your hands and feet.
- Exposure to notation reading.
Having weekly or bi-weekly lessons will enhance and speed up your learning process, with the help of some regular practise, but if time and/or money is an issue we have other options. We offer package deals for drum lessons for kids and adults alike. There are 10 lessons per package and you have 6 months to use it, so if coming every week is just impossible, you have plenty of time before your package runs out.

If you have a drum kit at home, online drum lessons are also available upon request.
We started The Drum Club in 2017 and it has become very popular. Designed with absolute beginners in mind, it’s a small group drum class for kids (aged 6+) where they can build a solid foundation in playing the drum kit covering all the basics including hand and foot technique, simple grooves and fills, an introduction to rhythm reading and understanding drum kit notation. As the kids begin to master these basics, they’re shown how to use these skills creatively and musically in the context of a few contemporary song styles. Drum Club roughly follows the normal School year (i.e. 3 terms per year) and students sign up term by term.
