Jeremy Sibson Performance & Education

Our Lessons

Drum lessons at Jeremy Sibson Performance & Education are tailored to the individual student. Emphasis is placed on reading and understanding music in a contextual manner. Students are encouraged to listen widely to many styles so as to broaden their understanding of the place of drums in modern pop and rock music.

Create your own YouTube drum video

Once students have reached a level where they are competent enough to read and play drum charts there is an opportunity, should they wish, to record their drumming on video and audio to produce their own YouTube or social media drum cover film clip. Students are also taught some basics of audio recording, filming, and post production in both.

Styles Taught

Most styles of modern popular music are taught here at Jeremy Sibson Performance & Education. Jazz and Big Band can also be studied if desired as can rudimentary drumming.

The studio has double kick pedals for students who wish to venture into the realms of Metal styles.

Students are taught Pop, Rock, Reggae, Latin, Country, and some Afro-Cuban styles.
