What can you expect from a Yamaha Drum Encounters lesson?

Lessons are one hour long and are taught in groups of 8 students per class (8 years old+).

Students learn new beats and rhythms on practice pads and then apply what they have learnt to professional quality drum-kits. The studio is equipped with new and modern practice pads and two drum kits.

Students learn by a variety of group teaching methods and are accompanied by pop/rock backing tracks. This is ideal for drummers as one of the many skills a professional drummer needs is to be able to keep a steady beat for the rest of the band.

The Yamaha system has a strong emphasis on students learning through listening and playing before reading music. This unique approach is very intuitive and develops a good musical ear from the start. Students will also learn to read traditional musical notation to reinforce what they have learnt by ear.
At the end of each book, students have the opportunity to take an accredited exam using material learnt in lessons. Grades 1 – 8 are available, with Grade 6 onwards carrying UCAS points towards University applications. So this fun activity can turn into a career or aid progression into Higher Education.
