At Drumstruck Studios – School of Contemporary Music, we cater to each and every individual’s needs and expectations. We truly live and breathe music and want to impart the joy of being able to appreciate music and share our knowledge with anyone who is happy to turn up at Drumstruck.

FREE TRIALS AND ASSESSMENTS
Trial: If you’re unsure about the right choice of school for you, you may also book a free trial lesson of 30 mins to have an idea of how lessons are conducted at Drumstruck Studios. Speak with our Instructor/s and learn about the syllabus we use as well as how the lessons are structured in order to help you meet your goals.
Assessment: Any musician who is unsure about their level of musicianship may come forward and be assessed and have a specific idea on how to improve and achieve their personal targets. We have had many musicians come to us ranging from beginners to advanced players. After an assessment with us we have had musicians signing up with us at grades 3, 5 and 8. Some even signing up just to prepare for auditions into Lasalle and even Berklee College and we must say they have been successful.
LESSONS ARE TAILORED TO INDIVIDUAL’S PACE WITH NO PRIOR MUSIC BACKGROUND REQUIRED
Anyone with a love for music is welcomed at Drumstruck Studios. We will assess and educate students at each individual’s pace, allowing them to progress yet enjoying music at the same time. Lessons at Drumstruck are structured yet at the same time not rigid. Students are coached with good syllabuses and guided through with a systematic approach proven to show results. Students may indicate to their instructors if they want to learn cover songs or materials of their own and this will be included into part of their lessons. Lessons at Drumstruck are also conducted with a holistic approach where the focus is in 6 key areas which are Performance, Technical Ability, Sight Reading, Improvisation, Aural skills and Musicianship Knowledge.
WE ARE FLEXIBLE WITH OUR LESSONS SO YOU DON’T LOSE OUT
If you are unable to attend a lesson, just inform us 1 day before and you may reschedule the lesson to any other day and time according to the availability of both the student and instructor. Can’t seem to have time to make up 1 full lesson? You may even do lesson extensions over a few lessons to make up for one lesson you missed. In any case where the instructor’s schedule doesn’t fit yours, you have the option of having the lesson with another one of our instructors. Can’t seem to make up the class within the month? Let’s bring it forward to next month as an additional lesson then. If lesson is cancelled on the day itself due to sickness, just produce a medical certificate and the lesson will be replaced. We do make exemptions for certain cases where no medical certificates are available, just speak with us.

All students may call and book our studios for their own practices during our operating hours. Students MUST call at least 1 day in advance to book the studios.
