dsc00232Our “Drum Encounters” Course is not just for those seriously considering a musical career, but ideal for those who just want to relieve the stress that’s built up over the day.

Taught in groups of up to 8 students, combining the best elements of traditional one-to-one drum lessons, with a creative, modern approach, resulting in unrivalled quality of teaching.  Learn to play in a state-of-the-art Drum Studio, using the best Yamaha Drum Kits and practice pads.  (You don’t need a full drum kit at home ~ quiet practice pads are all you need at home to practise effectively.)

“Drum Encounters” is a fun and innovative way to learn to play the drums, designed to take the student from beginner to advanced and open to anyone from age 7.

Our “Drum Encounters” Course contains material covering Rockschool/Yamaha Grades 1 to 8.  The early grade materials (grades 1 and 2) take approximately 12 to 14 months to complete.  Students working at the higher grades (3 to 4) should expect to take approximately 18 months.  Grades 5 to 8 will inevitable take longer, owing to their complexity.  Exams are, of course, entirely optional.
