Are all of your lessons one to one?
Yes. We believe that this is the most results driven approach to learning the drums. Unlike other methods of learning you can stop, ask questions and change direction whenever. You will have always have your own industry professional on hand to guide you every step of the way.
How important is practice?
If the saying practise makes perfect applies to anything it's the drums. The more you practise the better you will get, it's that simple. There are no shortcuts when it comes to learning to play a musical instrument.
How often should I practise?
With that said you don't have to practise all day every day. We will help you to develop a simple practise plan in the form of weekly tasks. Little but often is key here. We recommend that beginners start out by practising for at least fifteen minutes every other day. I'm sure you will agree that this is easily achievable, even for the busiest of us.
How long are your drum lessons?
We offer three different lesson lengths. These are twenty minutes, ideal for youngsters and those starting out on their musical journey. Thirty minutes, our most popular lesson length allowing us to dig a little deeper and sixty minutes for the advancing student, or those looking to further their knowledge on the instrument.
How much are your drum lessons?
Our twenty minute lessons are just ten pounds each. Thirty minute lessons are fifteen pounds each and hour lessons are twenty five pounds each. We offer payment for lessons as a block of four rolling. This means that you get one hundred percent lesson time, especially during busy periods. It also means that you don't have to worry about money every lesson.
What happens if I can't make my drum lesson?
If for any reason you are unable to make your lesson we kindly ask for twenty four hours notice. We appreciate that this can't always be given, in this case we will book you in at a different time before your next lesson (subject to availability). In rare cases where a lesson cannot be rescheduled we offer a double lesson to catch up the missed lesson. We do however charge for lessons where no notice has been given. We don't want anyone to miss out on their lessons, we enjoy teaching as much as you enjoy learning.
What happens if I go on holiday?
No problem. We kindly ask for four weeks notice and we then put a temporary freeze on your lessons until you return.
How do I cancel my drum lessons?
We appreciate that there may be circumstances when you need to stop your lessons. If this happens we kindly ask for four weeks notice so that we can accommodate other students looking to start lessons with us.
