Benefits of Drumming

Not only is drumming a great way to involve yourself within the world of music, it has been shown to provide players with a range of hidden benefits that positively impact on mental, physical health and performance. People learning the drums can see benefits in…


  • Stress reduction

  • Academic performance

  • Confidence

  • Communication

  • Collaboration

  • Physical fitness


Advantage of Private Lessons 
Although online learning may be popular, key technique points can be missed at a crucial stage of development. This incorrect playing could take years to undo and may pose potential health risks. Online learning is a great resource to supplement your lessons, however, particularly if learning from scratch, we highly recommend taking at least 4-6 months of private lessons at some stage to make sure your playing is as economical as it can be.



Our curriculum is designed to take our students from a beginner all the way through to an advanced level and focuses specifically on key techniques such as….


  • Rudiments

  • Paradiddles

  • Basic beats and rhythms

  • Hand technique

  • Stick control

  • Coordination

  • Proper posture

  • Broader music theory

  • Composition and reation.


The lessons are based on the following beliefs:

  •  Quality drum lessons delivered at all times

  •  Good atmosphere for learning

  •  Structured learning with clear direction

  •  Pre-written syllabuses in place for structured learning taught to suit each learning style


All styles are covered such as rock, funk, jazz, brazilian, cuban, rhythms in different time signatures and others which branch off these main genres.
