What You’ll Learn


Even beginners will be playing a full drum kit on their first taster class. We offer free 30 minute taster lessons to give you the opportunity to come down to the studio, have a chat about your personal goals and play drums. This helps me tailor every class to each individual student, but also gives you the opportunity to tell me what it is you’re looking to achieve, e.g – Grades 1-8 (Trinity Rock School) or for more advanced students, which areas you wish to improve.
