While drums and percussion instruments are among the oldest musical instruments, the modern drum kit is among the newest. A creation of the twentieth century, the modern drum kit came into being when someone realised that instead of hiring a snare drummer player, a bass drummer, and a cymbal player, you could could get one person to do all three (OK, there’s a bit more to it than that). The drum kit was developed back when jazz music was being born and the instrument has evolved with jazz and the genres of music it spawned.

We offer drum lessons to drummers of all levels, so no matter if you don’t know your paradiddle from your pataflala or you want to develop your linear phrasing chops, our drum teacher can help you achieve your goals. You can learn a wide range of styles including rock, funk, blues, jazz, R&B, pop, reggae and more. We’ll work on subjects including technique, reading, grooves, improvisation, independence and coordination, rudiments, dynamics, getting around the kit and versatility.

We can also help you to prepare for the Rockschool and Trinity exam boards’ tests too.
