'The band is only as good as the drummer'

Drum Lessons in Coventry

Our approach

It is said that the drummer is the 'engine room' of the band, keeping the whole thing going, the foundation.  This is at the heart of our tuition at Modern Music, but there is so much more to our drum lessons in Coventry.
We believe in giving our drum students of all ages and abilities the tools to become not just solid drummers but all-round creative musicians too. Our drum lessons are available for anyone in the Coventry and Warwickshire area, are fun, music focused and based around the following five subjects:
 practical ability 

Grooves, fills, styles (Rock, Jazz, Pop, Reggae, R&B, Gospel, Metal, Latin and more) repertoire, vocabulary, style, taste, use of space, advanced studies.


All rudiments learned in a structured manner, focusing on good technique, relaxation and the practical use of rudiments.


CD/MP3 play along, learning when to play and when not to, band skills, showmanship, audition advice, professionalism, dynamics, performance technique.

 theory & reading 

Note values, note/word association, rest values, structured snare drum reading course, chart reading, writing music. 


Posture, drum positioning and set-up, holding the sticks/types of grip, using your fingers, kit ergonomics, gears.

We welcome students from the following areas: Coventry, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Nuneaton, Bedworth, Kenilworth, Ansty, Binley, Shilton, Wolvey, Rugby, Hinckley, Solihull and the surrounding areas.
