SCHOOL COURSES

IN-SCHOOL WEEKLY DRUM COURSE

We offer weekly drum courses in both local and international schools in Hong Kong.

These courses are suitable for students with little to no drumming or musical background.

In 2022-2023, we are offering two types of beginner drum courses: Course A (Explorer) and Course B (Exam-Based).

By the end of 10-12 classes, students will gain the knowledge and confidence to play a number of Rock/Pop songs or are ready to take the Rockschool Drum Exams to obtain their certifications in drums.
