Drum Lessons


About The Tutor:

Logan, our Drum Tutor, has been teaching since 2011. Percussion has always been an object of fascination for this humble tutor, and with experience on a range of different Rhythme-based instruments, it's a pleasure for Logan to be able to teach the Drums to you.

Lesson Times & Availability

We aim to teach 48 students per week. We have the remaining available lesson times available for new students:

- Mondays 3pm
- Tuesdays 6pm
- Wednesdays 6:30pm
- Fridays 3pm

Our lessons are generally 30 minutes in length, although we can do hour lessons if you prefer. 

One on One or Group Lessons?

Drum Lessons are generally one-on-one. From personal experience, Logan feels that this is the best way to teach his percussion students. Parents are welcome to attend their child's lessons.

Entry Requirements for our Lessons

Anyone aged 5yrs and up is welcome to begin learning with us. While most instruments require a knowledge of the letters A-G (as per melodic/harmonic instruments), the way that we read drum notation is different. (each drum/cymbal is a differet note). 

Regarding Exams and Assessments

We can help you with preparing for both Grading exams and/or NCEA assessments. We can also help you to decide on songs for performances, and we can teach you how to improvise both melodies and harmonies.

Expectations Regarding Practice

We don't expect you to practice for more than 2 x 20 minute sessions per week. We feel that it can be better to let our students aim for a lesser amount of time, and then encourage them to practice more if preferred.

The exception to this would be if an examination or performance was coming up. In that situation, we would expect our students to be practicing whenever possible, or at least once per day.
