Playing fast around the drums is one thing. But to play music, to play with people for others to listen to, that’s something else. That’s a whole other world.

Tony Williams

Our drum tuition covers all ages from complete beginners to advanced players and the student can never be too young or old to get started.

Lessons are tailored to the student and their specific goals to ensure positive progress. All styles are covered from contemporary Pop, Rock, Funk, Jazz, Latin and World Rhythms. In addition, note values, sight-reading, time-keeping, compound time signatures and working with click tracks and sequencers.

Whether the student is looking to Jam with Daft Punk, Get Down with James Brown, play Cool Jazz with Miles Davis or Rock Out with AC DC, anything is possible once enrolled. Drumming can help improve concentration and coordination, boost self-confidence, relieve stress, aid relaxation and improve verbal, perceptual, numeric, spatial & motor skills.

You can get a little taste of our drum lessons below and see who will be taking the lessons.

I have really enjoyed being taught by Anna. She makes the lessons fun and is super enthusiastic. She prepares my lessons well and has been really helpful with my rudiments and tempo.

I am drumming to Jazz music with Lauren and it is great fun. Lauren is a wonderful teacher who makes the lessons very enjoyable. I love the classes and have been listening to and playing a lot of different songs. Thank you, Lauren.
