Drum Encounters

Yamaha drums in the classroom

The Yamaha Drum encounters course is made for students aged 7 and upwards and focuses on contemporary pop and rock music to develop skills and techniques on the drums.

We believe the ‘Ear before Eye’ method of the Yamaha teaching system allows the lessons to be engaging and means we can have you playing from the very first lesson.  We focus on the fun side of things because that is what learning a new instrument and making music should be all about.

The Yamaha Drum Encounters Course is also accredited by the Rock School examination board and goes from grades 1 through to 8.

You will learn to read music as well as writing it with our support so that you can pass with flying colours in any of the grade exams that you wish to enter during your time with us here at Yamaha Tyneside.

When you sign up for our lessons you will receive your own bespoke course books which will allow you to learn easily in lessons as well as at home too.

Drum classes consist of up to 8 players maximum and will allow you to share your learning experience and enthusiasm with other musicians right from the very start.
