Learning To Play The Drums

drum-lessons-leicester Drums are cool, big, bulky & loud! When you watch a skilled drummer play they can be a solo instrument in their own right. They are also one of very few instruments that pop up in every genre of music we know, double pedal thrash metal or a light jazz kit within a big band. Also, drummers are always in demand, especially one with their own transport!

So if you fancy learning to play the drums, why not get started
