Reading & Theory

These are a very handy set of skills that help us understand the music that we are playing so we can play it solidly with confidence. The ability to read music means we can learn to play a lot of the material we see written down. 

Rhythm training

Covering the bases of how rhythm and music works. We learn to read music notation, cover note values, subdivisions and how to count them. Time signatures and the basics of how they work. How to follow a chart. We start right as the basics so no prior musical understanding is required and each new idea is added one at a time so you progress comfortably.


Learn how to play the rudiments and use them in your playing musically. Sticking, roll studies,  applications, inversions and playing over different subdivisions. Often referred to as the drummers vocabulary. Learn how to apply and orchestrate these voicings to open up a vast array of musical ideas.

Advanced Rhythms

Covering odd, complex and irrational time signatures, phrasings, polyrhythms and metric modulation amongst other advanced topics. 

Musical Genres

Styles such as R’nB, Jazz, Fusion, Latin, Reggae, Hiphop, Rap, Metal & World music are all also taught with preferences up to the student’s musical tastes. Double bass drum pedals are available 

Drum Stick Techniques

Stick Techniques help make our musical expressions possible. Covering the basic strokes and grips, accent studies & dynamics, rimshot, cross-stick as well as Moeller techniques and more complex strokes such as freehand.
