Peak times (weekdays after 6pm) – We currently have high demand for lessons between 6pm and 8pm on weekdays. There is a waiting list of up to 2 weeks for Taster lessons at these peak times.

What happens at the Taster Lesson?

The Taster Lesson follows a pattern depending on your previous experience. For beginners we’ll introduce the main concepts and provide a fun hands-on overview where you’ll be playing the kit throughout the session. By the end of the Taster Session you’ll have a firm grasp of the basics. See below for more details about the beginner’s taster session.

If you’ve played drums before please provide some details about your previous experience in the box on the booking form (click the discount code to go to the booking form). We’ll use the info you give us to plan a bespoke introductory lesson based around your previous experience. Or, if you’re feeling a bit rusty because you haven’t played for years we can use the session to assess where you are at and give practical tips to help iron out any bad habits you might have picked up since you last sat behind a drum kit.

Introductory lesson for beginners

The beginners’ introductory lesson involves coordination exercises and games to get used to moving around the drum kit, demonstration of various core principles (how to hold the sticks, what each part of the drum kit does, etc), and an introduction to grooves and fills.

The precise content of the introductory lesson will depend on what takes the student’s interest, plus any prior musical experience.

There’s no need to bring anything to the lesson – everything is provided.


Introductory lesson for experienced players

Drummers who want to brush up on skills or improve technique or need a dose of creative inspiration are more than welcome to take advantage of the introductory discount – simply click the discount code above.
