Lessons are catered towards your needs and goals with the emphasis on creativity and playing to music.
What level are you?
If you are completely new to drumming or have only played for a short amount of time, then a beginners lesson is where to start! The first lesson will involve working out what you would like to achieve from the lessons aswell as learning basic beats and fills.
Been playing for a while already? Need to brush up on some skills? Then your first lesson will be an assessment. After identifying where you're at, we will then discuss your strengths and weaknesses and how we will go about achieving your personal goals.
Need some coaching on some more advanced skills? Technique, sightreading, musicality, etc. Then look no further. The advanced programme is designed to offer you a structured method to develop those weaker areas and enhance your playing.
The teaching programme incorporates the following elements:
TIMING & TIMEKEEPING - the most important elements of drumming
TECHNIQUE - how we play the drums (grip, position, moeller, etc)
COORDINATION - the limbs working together
VOCABULARY - grooves & fills: the language of drumming
STYLES - the culture and evolution of drumming (Rock, Jazz, Reggae, etc.)
READING - understanding and interpreting the dots
CONCEPTS - Polyrhythms, Odd Times, Phrasing, etc
SONG/REPERTOIRE - the tunes and songs we play
Playing to music and backing tracks
Playing to backing tracks and music is the key to developing a good musical understanding and awareness, so it is adopted from the offset. This ensures that you learn effectively while having a lot of fun in the process!
