LESSONS                           

 

The thought of starting to learn a new instrument or dusting off the cobwebs and picking up the sticks again can be pretty daunting. There are all sorts of things to consider - do you want to learn to read music, prefer to improve a particular technique or just want to play for fun and learn your favourite songs?

As Drumcademy was created to put the power back into the hands of the learner, Jon will work closely with you to take away the worry and work with you to set your goals, developing fun and engaging lesson plans that help to build the skills you need to attain them.

There's nothing you can't learn at DRUMCADEMY and if it isn't something Jon specialises in, he'll research the skill to ensure you can master it together.
