How do the drum lessons work?
Regardless of your ability we will be able to help you learn and develop your Drum skills.
Our Drum lessons are taught in a small group or on a one on one basis.
Both are a great way to learn the specific techniques associated with the Drums.
How will I learn to play the drums?
We discuss you or your childs own lesson aspirations and plan our courses for you. Suitable for absolute beginners or more advanced players.
Your tutor’s will discuss your very own goals and objectives. They will then work with you by setting practise goals throughout the week.
In our experience everyone learns at a different pace and style. This is why our lesson emphasis is on a one to one basis or a group for a reason, these take place in the form of a Drum Masterclass
Can I take Grades?
Examining board’s we use RSL Awards ( Rockschool ), Trinity Rock and Pop and Trinity College. All students have the opportunity to take graded exams, but its not compulsory
If a child is working towards an academic CV its important to know that Grade 6 is equivalent to a GCSE, Grade 8 is equivalent to an A Level. Both carry UCAS points.
What’s the cost?
Can Adults learn as well as children ?
Absolutely! Our Lessons are available for children and adults.
Your bespoke lesson plans ensure that your musical journey is enjoyable and rewarding.
Remember our lessons are with a REAL tutor for a REAL lesson online or in-store.
Will I get the opportunity to perform?
We offer the opportunity to perform in End of Term concerts which are in a gigging format.
If you really want to Rock out you could join a band and be part of The Derosa Sessions.
There are many other opportunities such as joining an Orchestra, playing in Church or even a folk group in your local area.
What will my first drum lesson be like?
Alex is a world class educator. As well as tutoring at Derosa he is also a Worldwide consultant for RSL awards.
Alex has experience across all education sectors and has been classed as an “offsted” outstanding tutor on numerous occasions.
Matt has recently become new to parenting but is in no way new to drumming.
To date Matt has seen many of his students achieve high standards throughout all grades.
Matt continues to gig and recently won the best open mic drummer in the UK!
Performing on your instrument makes you a better player!
Playing your instrument in a stressful environment like an exam or concert can help hugely with your confidence. You can gain a far greater control with your playing whilst battling your nerves.
People often find that after a performance their playing has immediately stepped up a level.
Performing is said to improve brain function, help with self confidence, help focus the mind and develop discipline, improve your well being and better your social skills.
We are in no doubt that wherever you perform, even to small groups of friends and family it is an invaluable thing to do.
