Art of Tempo offers simple yet effective drum lessons for beginners that bypass entry-level pad training. Students get behind a drum kit during their first lesson to start learning how to play the drums. Through private drum lessons, rehearsals and live performances, students will learn rudiments to drum fills and solos. Beginners learn how to read music and play basic drum beats on day one. Lessons progress to include medium full stroke rolls, rebounding double strokes, and singles to doubles exercises. More advanced drummers love to participate in our rock drumming program!

For every drum grade, students can plot their stylistic specialism, helping develop an in-depth understanding of the type of playing they identify with, whether this is pop, rock, metal, blues, country, funk, jazz or reggae. The Grade Drum exam is for candidates who have mastered advanced technical control and have a thorough grasp of extended stylistic techniques. At Grade this is shown through mature stylistic conviction, consummate execution of rhythmic complexity, mature and creative stylistic solo and improvisation work as well as a commanding sense of communication and performance. There are two types of exam available at Grade, Grade Exam or Performance Certificate.
