Ken Young Drum Lessons


I am a professional drummer with over 40 years experience of playing in bands including rock, progressive country, popular music and a bit of jazz. I have been teaching for 9 years and have students age ranging from 8 to adult. Some come to me as complete beginners, others want to improve their abilities and some want to take graded exams.




I have developed many skills to help you:

* Have fun while learning to play drums - for beginners I aim to get you playing a rhythm at the first lesson

* Start and enjoy drumming - play along to music tracks

* Build confidence in your ability - one to one tuition using material that works for you

* Improve skills by developing different styles and techniques

* Play by ear or reading drum music
