Drums are great fun to play and every rock band or pop bands needs a good drummer. Like guitar, drums are very popular with pre teens and teens.
Playing drums requires good co-ordination skills and a strong sense of beat. Drums are rhythm instrument which set the pace (or tempo) and keeps the time for all the other instruments to fall in line with.
Our teachers are versatile and play a wide range of styles. Many beginners have a real passion and desire to play a particular piece or style. Our teachers know how important it is to satisfy this interest and try to work this in as soon as possible, sometimes in the first few lessons.
Some schools offer a Rock School programme where budding drummers can meet up with guitarists and vocalists and form their own bands.
For younger children, a Forte music course is recommended, where they will gain a wide range of musical skills that any budding musician needs including rhythm and beat development. See Our Philosophy.
