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.

I am by the name of Basiima Edward Collins and would like to share a few things I know in Esom School Of Music. I am a term one student but what I have had in this wonderful school is mind blowing because I am learning so fast more than I was before joining Esom School Of Music. The courses I offered are; Audio production and Piano, this is giving me an easy and quicker way to make beats since my desire is to become a best producer in the world and trust me, I am achieving that as I am talking. There are also a variety of other courses you can take e.g Video production, sound engineering, vocal training, saxophone playing, Violin, Guitars (acoustic, solo and bass) Drums, to mention but a few. So if anyone out there is looking for a best music school, simply come to Esom School Of Music because all your music desire will be fully achieved. Thank you and may God bless you.

It's a good school with brilliant teachers. However, most of the active teaching focuses on the practical side of music, while the theory side of things is largely left to the student as self-study. A structure for the teaching, assessment and feedback regarding music theory as its own subject should be developed and then the school will really shine and produce knowledgeable musicians with a true mastery of their art. The location is a bit inconvenient, being in the middle of town, but the classes are worth the journey. In general, yes to Esom.
