Derby's Largest Music School providing one to one drum lessons for all ages.
Drums lessons at Forte are great fun and extremely popular as we can play as loud as we like here! For children and adults the drums are probably an instrument that everyone and every musician should try at some point as it gives you essential skills regarding timing and co-ordination. We teach grades or those that just want to make some noise! In terms of having your own kit, electronic drum kits are less intrusive and can be used with headphones if an acoustic kit is going to be too loud for home use.
We teach children from around the age of five years old and we teach adults of all ages too. All teachers are not only supremely talented musicians, but excellent teachers first and foremost. If you're looking for drums lessons in Derby, book a lesson with us today!
Grades are not forced upon students as we can teach you without the use of them to achieve your goals. However, all of our teachers can take students through grades all the way to grade 8 and beyond. Grades can be a great way to learn as it gives students something to aim for and we only teach recognised syllabusses such as ABRSM and Trinity. A mixture of the two ways of learning is gnerally preffered by most but it's completely up to you.
Initially a practice pad will be fine which is something to practice your techmiques on. But relatively soon on you will need your own kit to be able to practice what the teacher has given you. If noise is an issue an electronic drum kit is a popular option as it can be used with headphones. For advice on what to go for your teacher will be able to help to decide.
You will find our prices on the prices section of this website. Most beginners are best off with a half hour lesson intially. All the payment for lessons go to your designated teacher usually by monthly bank transfer. After your intial lesson, all Lessons are payable a month in advance and your teacher will provide you a contract with their particular rules on cancellation and payment etc.
This is always tricky to say as guitar is slightly more difficult at the early stages. We generally recommend around 5 upwards in terms of children. The best thing to do is contact us for more details and organise a trial lesson.
Possibly the most asked question by adults. Our oldest student is 84 years old....so if you're middle aged there's no excuse! Our teachers specialise in teaching adults just as much as they do children. Our advice is to just have a go and we are sure you'll be pleasantly surprised how quickly you'll be able to pick things up.
