Certificate in Drumming

Course Overview
Modern drummers who are successful are versatile, creative players who have a good sense of touch, dynamics, and harmony between their hands. This program, which focuses on rock, jazz, and Rhythm and blues settings, will enhance your talents in these genres, beginning with the fundamentals of musicianship and technique and completing with dives into advanced improvisational techniques.

It’s never too early to start. Our Holiday program at Esom School teaches even the youngest children to play an instrument. Classes teach children how to play the drums as well as other instruments using hand percussion and perhaps other creative instruments.

Through private drum classes as well as group rehearsals, students learn to play the drums in a pleasant, friendly, yet comfortable setting, allowing them to progress more quickly. Subsequently, students have the opportunity to perform their favorite music in front of an audience.

Learning to play the drums provides students with a creative outlet, and then at Esom School, we make it an enjoyable, quick, as well as gratifying process.

We provide one-on-one classes with skilled music teachers, many of whom are also performing musicians. Students who have mastered the fundamentals can also join one of our Live Performance Groups to gain stage experience playing the drums!

  1. Learn the many rhythms used in everything we play on the drums.
  2. Learn to perform the Rudiments, which are the fundamental drumming patterns.
  3. Playing Rock Grooves can make you stand out among your pals for your impressive rhythms.
  4. Discover how to play along with well-known music
  5. Study many drumming styles, including Latin, March, Blues, and reggae
  6. Study drum music theory and how to read drum notation.

No criteria are necessary to enroll in our drumming program. We are not concerned about your academic background.

Study at Esom School of Music

Being in a group allows you to learn and perform ensemble compositions with others. In essence, a class turns into a spectacular (yet educational) jam session featuring the songs you love the most from your collection. This has to be the most enjoyable way to study.
Private music lessons make sure that the student has the instructor’s full attention for the whole class period. Due to the individual attention you receive, it is possible to explore concepts and procedures in more detail.
A shorter-duration version of our standard course known as a short course is offered through a private program (normally 6 weeks). A student in one of our short courses receives two classes per week along with weekly practice.
Our sessions are interactive and entertaining, and our instructors provide real-time feedback and direction to our students while they stay attentive through meaningful discussions and learn the solutions to all of their musical queries.
