Individual Musical Tuition
At ‘The Drum School' we have a team of tutors dedicated to offering tuition on a one to one base. This service can be used towards:
One off lessons
Preparation for our ten week courses
Or in addition to our courses (reduced rates for our current students)
We also offer music theory lessons for all abilities. This service can be used by:
Classical musicians needing to acquire their Grade 5 theory
Musicians wishing to complement their practical knowledge
The idea of our Individual Music Tuition is to offer a service which is flexible and designed to suit a busy lifestyle. Our one to one service is as flexible as you would like it to be. Lessons can be booked in at the convenience of the individual student and/or arranged depending on progress and goals.

Our ten week courses take place in our purpose built studios. Classes run for two hours per week. One hour is spent with the theory tutor and one hour with the practical tutor.
In the theory classes, students will learn how to write as well as read drum notation music. Students will also learn the basics of harmony and take part in ear training exercises. All students have their own drum pad to use in the practical class cadidates will have to supply thier own drum sticks. Students are taught some set pieces in order to comply with the requirements of the exam that they will take (if they choose to do so) at the end of the ten weeks.
The classes however are by no means limited to only learning set pieces. Students are also taught improvisational skills, throughtout the course you will be introduced to the 40 drum rudiments are essentially the building blocks for every drum beat, fill, or pattern that you could ever play. Just as letters and words make up all the sentences on this page, the drum rudiments make up all the patterns you play at on the drum set.
