BEGINNER


OVERVIEW


 

Never having played the drums before, people get very nervous about taking lessons but we love that you are a beginner because we then know that we can teach you the right way from the beginning and not fix bad habits that have been created through either a bad teacher or trying to learn on your own. Habits are extremely difficult to break so we make sure that you start the right way and learn the right things, in the beginning, to build a strong foundation and then improve on that. The beginner course will take you all the way up to an intermediate level.
