As a beginner we will cover the basics including how to hold the sticks correctly; the names of the different drums and cymbals; and how to play a pop/rock beat using basic co-ordination. From lessons thereon we will develop your basic techniques and understanding of rhythmn around the drum kit by learning different songs and styles. If a students feels like they would like to work towards a grade we can start to do so. The most important thing is that you have fun whilst learning how to play the drums.
