At The Groove Hub we cater for students of all ages and abilities, from Beginners through to Advanced players.
We have a studio in Manchester, however in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we can offer our usual personalised lesson programming online, for students who are self isolating.
All lessons are tailored to the individual student's needs, no two drummers are the same so we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to learning. We'll make sure we're always working towards your personal goals and playing the music you enjoy!
We offer a FREE taster session to help you decide if we're the right place for you to learn to play.
After that, regular lessons are available in 30 minute or 1 hour slots at our studio in Manchester, please see below for pricing. We also offer discounts for block lesson bookings so please contact us to find out more abut this:
30 Minute Lesson
30 minute lessons are a great starting point, these give us enough time to work on ideas and make sure everything stays fresh!
£18 per lesson
1 hour lesson
One hour lessons are great if you've been playing for a while, the longer lesson will give us more time to work on advanced topics. This is also a good option if you aren't able to commit to weekly lessons, there'll be plenty to work on between lessons!
£28 per lesson
We know drums are FUN, that's why every student who learns with us gets to play on a real kit, right from the first lesson.
In fact, we believe our students should have access to the highest quality equipment as part of their learning experience with us, so we're excited to say that the The Groove Hub studio has two full sized, professional level drum kits in use at all times.
We also have a comfortable waiting room for parents and free on-street parking is available.
Take a look at our studio and waiting room below!
We can cover a wide range of topics, including: Reading Music Notation, Technique, Creativity, Speed, Coordination, Groove / Feel, Timing, Styles / Genres, Performance and Recording.
Lessons will vary from student to student, depending on your individual goals, but we've pulled the guide below together to give you an idea of what kind of topics you might cover in lessons:
As a beginner you'll learn your first beats and fills on a real acoustic drum kit and cymbals. We'll work on developing grooves and fills, start to understand drum notation and introduce some key rudiments you'll use throughout your playing career.
If you're an intermediate player we’ll continue to develop your drumming vocabulary by introducing new genres, rhythms and rudiments, learning how these can be used across grooves and fills. We’ll also look at using dynamics, ghost notes and more advanced techniques to push your drumming to the next level.
As an advanced player we’ll really hone in on your specific drumming goals. Whether you want to work on technique and speed, develop creativity or learn about recording we’ll make sure you are always moving forwards as a drummer.
