Drum Encounters is a group lesson designed to be a fun and innovative way to learn the drums. Pupils can start as beginners from 8 years and upwards and progress to an advanced level with professional drum teachers.
Drum Encounters combines the best elements of traditional one-to one drum lessons with a creative modern approach resulting in quality group teaching.
Drum Encounters students learn to play in a state-of-the-art Yamaha drum studio using the best drums and practise pads. Drum encounters lessons are "LIVE" group lessons - pupils warm up with exercises on drum pads followed by technique development on drum kits, playing along to all kinds of music.
Drum Encounters material includes drum notation and drum patterns to supplement the skills and techniques the students will learn. Pupils are entered for drum examinations through the Yamaha system which is run in conjunction with Rockschool.
