DRUMS

Overview

At the Academy, every state-of-the-art drum lesson room is equipped with a drum kit and practice pads for our students. Our instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles of drumming, and challenge every student with technical exercises specifically designed to improve their speed and comfort.
