Well it depends…… !!

Visiting a music shop, trying out a few instruments and getting good advice will save you money in the long run.

You can book a Taster Session and try out gear here if getting to a store is tricky. My advice always is ‘try before you buy’ if possible.  You'll need something to practice on at home and I'm happy to advise.

It is possible to succeed without reading music but most people find this a lot easier than they think it will be! I do encourage everyone to learn some basic music theory including reading rhythm notation.

It's best to practice what you are taught each lesson so a total of maybe an hour a week is recommended if you want to make good progress.  I’ve noticed that those who make the most progress practise a bit every day.

Absolutely not, it's my belief that it's never too late to start learning an instrument as an adult and get good at it. It takes enthusiasm and some commitment to practice between lessons, that's all.

I was in my fifties before I had my first drum lesson and now I'm actually playing gigs and it still seems incredible to me, but it's true. Several of my students have a similar story to tell.

You can try a few lessons and see, you have nothing to lose.

Most lesson material will be provided.  Occasionally I do recommend a particular tutor book depending on the individual. Students studying for graded exams will need to purchase the grade study book and pay an examination fee.

How often do I need to practise?
Do I need to be able to read music?
I've retired, have I left it too late?
Which instrument should I buy?
Do I need to buy books?
A range of GIFT VOUCHERS are available!
What sort of music will I be playing?

We can look at the different artists that you like and pick some tracks to play. I’ll ensure the pieces we work on build your skills and technique.
