The lessons are one to one and allow the student to progress at their own pace. The lesson plan can be adapted to help each student progress in their preferred field of drumming, from rudimental drumming, to styles like Rock, Jazz and Latin. Grades are also available for students who want to earn an official accreditation.
Based in Mulcahy House Clonmel the studio offers the space and drums to be creative and to remain socially distanced.
