Junior Drum Trial








Somewhere deep inside every kid is an aspiring drummer. At Studio 72, we help transform those enthusiastic spoon beats, finger taps and rhythmic foot strikes using structured sessions, so our younger patrons learn to enjoy the kids drums we impart in our institution.


Our mentors use an unrestrictive way to teach children the joys of playing the drum, not just solo but in a group as well. We know that when a happy face leaves the classroom, it will set the stage for an enthusiastic return the next day, with increased fervor, excitement and a thirst to know what their tutor will teach them in the following sessions.


Your children are our legacy. Through music, we can help mold them to become not just enthusiastic learners but rising stars as well.


There is no time like the present to being those junior lessons. Join us now!





We teach all styles of music including pop, rock, blues, classic kids music etc. Students can learn to play their favorite tunes that inspire them.



We cover basic features such as

  • Basic rudiments
  • Understand notation
  • Grooves
  • Fills
  • Playing with songs



We provide the opportunity to learn the art of performing be it a solo piece or in a full band. By placing kids into groups, learning become a team effort. Students enjoy more supportive and motivating environment in which they learn.



It is important that students have goals which allow them to constantly measure improvements in their abilities, and also to explore the potential of their instrument within a more complete context.



Studio 72 incorporates UK’s highly recognized ABRSM and Trinity College London’s syllabus in our curriculum. We are also a recognized examination center for these accolades.



Two concerts are organized yearly during the school holidays. This is great opportunity for students to showcase their skills they have developed through musical lessons. Students of all stages in their musical development are encouraged to take part as it serves as a great learning experience, motivation and lots of fun!


Is there any age limit for taking up the drums?

As far as younger students go from experience, we’ve found that children under the age of five do not generally respond well to lessons due in part to the physical challenges of reaching the foot pedals and sometimes difficulty in focusing on one thing for more than a couple of minutes. Having said that, we have a student as young as 26 months old when he started with us and he is now almost 4 and progressing very well. As always there are exceptions and if you’re child is adamant he wants to try, we will be happy for them to come along and give it a go. Children with special needs are also welcome.

Does my child need a drum kit to get lessons?

Students have made progress without having a drum kit, however having a drum kit is recommended. If the student does not have a drum kit, there are a variety of methods to practice without one. There are practice Pads available which are cheaper and obviously a lot quieter! However it is important that the student is dedicated to practice without the reward of hearing what they are playing. These beginner items are perfect to begin with until the student gets a little more serious and eventually, you would want a drum kit (or even an electronic kit).

How much do lessons cost?

Our packages start from $180* per month (3-month Package). Please refer to our fee structure here

How long are the lessons?

A general guide is 30 minutes for under 12′s and 45 minutes for over 12′s. Students are free to choose either of these lengths that they prefer.

How are lessons structured?

This depends on the age and experience of the student. Typically in the first few weeks of lessons for a beginner, the focus tends to be on developing correct technique (grip, foot pedals, striking the drum correctly) and posture, understanding rhythm and simple notation followed by learning some basic grooves (rock, pop, jazz) and sticking patterns (Rudiments). School exam pieces will also be covered if required. As a student’s skill level grows then the lessons become more tailored to the individual’s interest and areas, which require most work. All styles will be covered, with rock, jazz and Latin independence being worked on, as well as applying the rudiments and learning to interpret a drum chart, playing with a click track, understanding song structure and developing a musical and sensitive approach to drumming, which is always popular with other musicians! Of course learning favorite songs and just having fun with the instrument is important too.

Do you prepare students for examinations?

Yes. We guide our students towards taking Trinity College Rock And Pop examinations as we’ve found this to be the most rewarding of all examination courses available. Examinations take place in June and November yearly. These are of course optional. AMEB exams can also be taught and enrolled for.

How often should I have lessons?

To be able to see progress and continuity, we would suggest one lesson a week and home practice is encouraged.

Where are you located?

We are at 45a Circular Road, 5 mins walk from Raffles Place MRT, conveniently located at Boat Quay area with ample parking available. Click here to see a map

Is it okay if I sit in on my child’s lesson?

It’s okay to sit in on your child’s lesson for the first time to reassure them or occasionally to check on progress or listen to a prepared piece. But from experience we believe it’s not a good idea to sit in on the lessons on a regular basis as it can hinder building a strong learning relationship between the child and teacher. When a parent is present sometimes the child can look to the parent for guidance rather than the teacher. Some children can also feel under pressure to perform when a parent is present as they want to please and show their abilities, sometimes when a child makes mistakes or can’t grasp something while a parent is watching they may tend to get more upset or lose confidence. We’ve found one on one lessons between teacher and student always produces the best results. Having said that, our studios are furnished with full-length glass walls where parents are able to sit outside the studio to watch the lesson.

How long will it take my child to be good?

This is probably the most common question we get asked and one to which I don’t have a clear answer. Everyone has different levels of natural ability, and a technique that one person might find difficult, another may find fairly simple to master, so this student will progress quicker, but as a very general guide we would expect most beginner students to be up and running with good basic technique (grip, posture etc.) and understanding rhythm and basic notation and playing some simple grooves such as basic rock, pop and jazz within the first six week period of lessons.

What equipment and books will I need?

We will provide your first pair of sticks when you sign up with us. We will also provide notes as you progress so do start a folder to keep these notes and bring them along every lesson. We will share with you on where to get your metronome and practice pads for home practice. Our studios are open for student’s rental should they need a conducive place to practice.
