Where do lessons take place?
Lessons take place at The Music Base studio which is based on Space Business Centre, Aylesbury.
Do I need a drum kit to start having lessons?
No, you don't need a drum kit to start off with. The great thing about learning drums is that with a little bit of imagination you can practise on anything whether that be cushions, mouse mats, buckets or saucepans.
What will I do in my first drum lesson?
In your first lesson you will learn how to play a basic pop/rock beat, play along to a song and play a short solo using all the drum kit.
Do I need to be able to read music?
No not at all. We will teach you how to read drum notation using a number of fantastic books or transcriptions for your favourite songs. You'll pick it up quickly.
Can I take exams?
Yes you can. We teach all grades 1-8 using the Trinity and Rockschool syllabus.
What do I need to bring to my first lesson?
Absolutely nothing, all we ask is that you come with a positive attitude and the willingness to learn and have fun. We will provide sticks for your first lesson which you can purchase. We also recommend wearing hearing protection during lessons.
