Our group drum lessons are available at our music centres in Godalming & Haslemere (Surrey, UK), at local schools and online. The perfect way to start drum lessons for beginners and kids, all ages are welcome to learn drums the Yamaha Way.
Group students study the Yamaha Drum Encounters syllabus during weekly drum lessons, which covers grades 1-8. If studied from beginning to end this course can take students from absolute beginner to professional standard.
The course is packed with material to build students gradually and includes bespoke songs (with backing tracks) that have been specifically written to compliment all of the musical techniques and ideas that are discovered in each chapter. Using these fundamentals we help develop a student’s creativity with a focus on composition, allowing the exploration of a growing musical vocabulary during their drum lessons.
Individual lessons are bespoke and tailored to each student. Book a free taster now to discuss your learning path with one of our fantastic teachers.

BUT WHY STUDY WITH US?
We have been delivering music lessons in the local area for over 10 years! Through industry experience and by making sure we work with some of the best music teachers in the area, we have grown to see hundreds of students every week for lessons.
We are a Yamaha Music School, which means only the best teachers can work with us. Every teacher that succeeds in our interview process is fully vetted with the usual safety and rights checks (enhanced DBS child safeguarding etc) but also are also interviewed by world leader Yamaha, to make doubly sure that they are great at what they do! Once they have passed the interview stage, they receive yearly training to make sure they continue being awesome.
We are a not-for-profit company that cares about our students. We want to see every student reach their full potential and are here to guide them if they need our help. If you need any guidance at any point, please get in touch.
Every student gets a chance to perform, often! Throughout the academic year we are a part of several large scale events, such as Haslemere Fringe, where we give our most promising students the opportunity to get valuable performance experience. You will also see us at smaller events, such as school summer fairs and discos, where we offer our services for free to help our local community. Students can join in with our open mic nights too!
Every student can learn how to be in a real, live band! We offer fantastic weekly band skills lessons at our Milford Centre, where students can learn the ins-and-outs of how to work well in a band setting. They will learn great songs, how to work in a team, build confidence and socialise with like-minded individuals. Every year our bands excel and join us on the biggest stages, where they perform to audiences of hundreds and sometimes thousands of people. It really is incredibly valuable musical experience at such a young age!
