The purpose of this course is to provide beginner drummers with a foundation for learning their instrument. Through the use of our online learning platform, the learner will work with their tutor in developing an effective framework for their ongoing development as an instrumentalist, based around their own goals and objectives. This will in turn facilitate the capacity to use their instrument as their primary tool for creating and/or performing music.
