Membership from just £25 per month – find out more
For students that prefer to book a block of lessons for a specific time period, we offer a one-month Mini Course. See below for full details about the course.
Mini Course details
The drum lessons are taken as a course of one lesson per week for 4 weeks. However, this is flexible and adaptable to suit the student’s schedule and requirements. For example, if you work shift patterns that change from week-to-week or if you have a holiday coming up lessons can ‘roll over’ to the following week. Just let us know as soon as possible if you need to change your lesson slot for any given week.
The month can begin on any day of the week and on any week of the month. Drum lessons are taught one-to-one (one teacher, one student).
Each Mini Course is tailored to suit the aims and needs of each individual student – whether learning drums just for fun or going down the route of professional development as a drummer and studying towards formal qualifications.
A regular weekly time slot suits some students, whereas others need a more variable time slot to fit around other commitments.
Depending on previous experience, musical interests and the student’s aims, the course includes the following topics:
- Groove playing
- Technique and control
- Coordination and independence
- Time feel development
- Aural perception
- Creativity and improvisation
- Concepts and thought processes
- Drumming within the context of a band
- Drum kit set-up and maintenance
- Dynamics and expression
- Reading and writing drum notation
- Performance skills
