IF YOU CAN COUNT TO FOUR, YOU CAN PLAY DRUMS


Am I the right teacher for you?
Choosing the right teacher can make a huge difference in how quickly you will pick up the hidden drummer within. I think my forte as a teacher is with individuals that have either never had lessons OR those who have had lessons in the past and gave up because they weren't enjoying it. Drums is a whole load of fun (except for your neighbours) and I like to keep my lessons that way. 

I had been teaching myself drums for a few years before I started to receive lessons from Matt. It wasn’t long until he equipped me with the skills to study music at university, majoring in percussion. I luv Matt wif all me ‘art”

Why should you learn drums?
Besides drumming being just a whole bunch of fun, ongoing research has identified learning a musical instrument as one of the best brain development activities as it uses the whole brain and strengthens the connections between the two halves. Studies have also indicated that it can help individuals develop physically, emotionally, socially and academically at a faster rate as well as enhancing:

- Coordination
- Aural skills
- Literacy skills
- Concentration
- Mathematical skills
- Self discipline
- Creativity
- Self esteem
- Memory

If you would like to read more into studies I’d encourage you to read works by Gary E. McPherson including -
