Drum lessons:

In the drum lessons you’ll encounter one of the most spectacular of instruments: the drum kit. You’ll quickly learn a number of basic rhythm patterns and before you know it you’ll be playing along with your favourite songs! The drum teacher regularly plays along on guitar or bass guitar so that you may experience playing along with other instruments.

Beginners as well as advanced students are welcome; in the lessons you can work on your technique, sound and/or develop your creativity. Should you be dreaming of studying at a pop music academy or conservatory, we can help you prepare for your audition!
