Frequently Asked Questions
LEARNING TO PLAY THE DRUMS
Should I buy a drum set before starting lessons?
You will unquestionably want to purchase or rent an instrument for your child to have at home. For drumsets, we can help you with the right choice for a good home instrument within your budget. Electronic sets are great as they allow the student to practice at home without rocking the house down! Headphones can be used by the student at home.
How long does it take to learn the drums?
There is no fixed answer of how long it takes to learn to play the drums. With constant practice, a basic level of playing can be achieved in a few months. Most of our students take drum lessons on a long term basis because they want to be continually improving and they find the music lessons inspiring.
Is drumming easy to learn?
The drums are as challenging or as easy as almost any other instrument to play. You need to invest time and energy into studying the instrument if you want to get skilled and if you want to start playing with other musicians.
Can you teach yourself drums?
You can teach yourself drums if you have the commitment, self-control, and enthusiasm to practice. There are many instructional videos and books that you can get your hands on. You can learn the basics of drums in the space of a few weeks.
What is the easiest song to play on drums?
- Michael Jackson – Billie Jean.
- Green Day – Wake Me Up When September Ends.
- The Rolling Stones – Honky Tonk Woman.
- The White Stripes – Seven Nation Army.
- Bon Jovi – Livin On a Prayer.
- AC/DC – Highway to Hell.
- Nirvana – Come As You Are.
- Muse – Starlight.
How long will it take to learn the drums?
For every hour spent in drum lessons, you should spend two practising on your drum pad. With dedication, discipline and work, you will be able to learn the drums reasonably fast – say, 10 to 12 months to become skilled, and about 18 months to 2 years to get really professional.
How long of a lesson should I take?
For children 5 to 9 years old, a 45 minute musical lesson is sufficient. For studnets 9+ years and students who have specific musical goals such as playing in orchestra, a full 1 hour lesson is a better investment. For any advanced players a 1 hour lesson is highly recommended.
Do I need my own instrument?
Can we split a 60 minute lesson into two lessons?
If you have two students wanting to learn, we are able to divide a 60 minute lesson into two 30 minute lessons.
What happens if I leave for 2 months and come back?
If you are leaving for 30 days or longer, you have the option of holding your time and teacher for when you return by paying your normal monthly tuition.You may also withdraw completely and re- register when you return, however your time and teacher may not be available.
Do you accept the government’s Creative Kids Voucher?
Currently we are only accepting Creative Kids Voucher in NSW. We hope to accept the government voucher in other states soon.
Do I need to travel anywhere for my lessons?
We will come to your home, meaning you don’t have to fight traffic to get to after school lessons.
How can we access the student portal?
You can visit the Teachworks page to log into the student portal. Email us at email@example.com to get your login details.
Is my child too young to start music lessons?
How old should my child be to begin music lessons?
Children as young as five can begin learning their instrument and basic music theory.
We are very experienced in tutoring young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to engage your child and give them best start in their musical journey.
Is a 45 minute lesson too long for my child?
In our 45 minute lessons, we are able to cover music theory, technical skills alongside the songs we teach. These important aspects of musical education are often skipped over in 30 minute lessons.
How do I know my child is progressing ?
To keep our students learning and progressing, we use the Musical Ladder system. Every 3 months our students take a test with their teacher to make sure they are absorbing the material in the lessons and making progress. Our students love this system as they get to earn cool colourful wristbands and certificates as well as trophies for their achievements! Our teachers also will take the time to conference
What happens if I ( my child ) gets sick and can’t make a lesson one day?
We have group make up classes on the weekend, that are age and level appropriate. You can sign up online for as many as you would like and the make up never expires, meaning you can take the make up class a week or 2 months later.
What are your teachers qualifications?
We are highly experienced in teaching students of all ages and skill levels, and have completed the relevant exams that allow us to teach. All teachers have undertaken a government certified “Working with children” police check.
