Beginners Drum Day, 26 May 2013
In association with Roland UK, we are also hosting our first “The Ultimate Drum Experience” beginners day This is a one day course, giving students the opportunity to learn to play the drums on their own personal Roland kit with head phones so they will be able to work at their individual pace.
The course is suitable for students who have never played before or have little or no experience of playing a full drum kit (minimum age 12, no maximum age!!!) in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. » Click here for more Drum Day information
