About our drum lessons

The Yamaha Drum Encounters course is for anyone interested in playing the drums.

Drum Encounters is a fun and innovative way to learn and play drums, designed to take the student to an advanced level. Open to anyone from the age of seven, Drum Encounters is ideal for those seriously considering a musical career and also for those who just want to relieve stress that’s built up over the day!

Taught in groups of up to 8 students, Drum Encounters offers a unique way to learn. Nothing matches the exhilaration of eight people drumming simultaneously! The course combines the best elements of traditional one-on-one drum lessons with a creative, modern approach, resulting in unrivalled quality of teaching. As a member of Drum Encounters, you’ll learn to play in a state of the art Yamaha drum studio, using the best Yamaha drums and practice pads. For those who don’t have a kit at home, Drum Encounters will be the highlight of the week! It’ll give you all the skills you need to bring the beat to your band!
