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 high energy, fun and maximum engagement to create an inspiring classroom atmosphere, no matter who you are!
Yamaha Drum Encounters is also accredited by the Rock School examination board and goes from Debut Grade through to Grade 8.
You will learn to read music, write it and even improvise your own beats and fills with our support, allowing you to create your own voice on the drums. Who knows, perhaps you’ll be the next John Bonham, Sheila E or Taylor Hawkins?
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.
Drum classes consist of up to eight individuals and will allow you to share your learning experience and enthusiasm with other musicians right from the very start.
