Group Drum Lessons

Group Drum Lessons

The group drum lessons are where we provide drum lessons to a group of

students at one of our group venues in Woking, Surrey.

What will I learn?

Hand techniques include techniques like the finger technique and the Moeller technique. There are also different grips that can be covered like American, German and French. Foot techniques include the slide technique and heel down technique. We also cover the Alexander technique and the importance of maintaining good posture.

Hand & Foot Techniques

Musicianship & Vocabulary

Independence & Coordination

Sight-Reading & Transcribing

Musicianship is the ability to use your knowledge, skill and artistic sensitivity during music performance. Vocabulary is the understanding of grooves and stickings that make each genre unique. All genres have their own distinct sound, so it’s important that we spend time studying them.

Independence is the art of playing separate rhythms with each of our different limbs. Coordination is how we play these patterns in a fluid way. Developing our Independence and Coordination allows us more freedom behind the drum kit.

Students who attend group drum lessons have a more heightened interest in drumming because they are interacting with people who share the same passion.

Positive peer learning encourages you to practise more and develop your music ability. It also encourages a greater sharing of creativity as you share new concepts and ideas with others.

Group lessons help you build a network of like-minded friends. One of the key abilities in finding work as a musician is the ability to network. Developing our communication skills is super important.

You have the opportunity to play in front of your classmates, helping to build your self-confidence.

How will I benefit?

Sight-Reading is the ability to read and speak out (play) drum notation in real time. Transcribing is how we take a part that we hear aurally, and notate it down using either pen and paper or software. Just as reading in our native language is incredibly important, so is being able to read the language of drum!

You will come away with a greater appreciation and awareness of 21st century music. Music holds a lot of power over our culture. In 2017, the average American spent slightly more than 32 hours a week listening to music, up 5.5 hours over the previous year.

Exposure to music can improve your human development. It is a mega-vitamin for the brain, enhancing your emotional balance, and helping unlock creativity.
