Hi, my name is Sam and I am the owner of First Class Drums – a drum-kit tuition company based in Inverness & Macduff, Scotland.

I established the company in 2010, but have over 17 years of teaching and professional drumming experience - (see button below my picture for credits)


So many people have come to me over the years and said “I’ve always wanted to try drums”.

A lot of parents say to me that their son or daughter would like to try drums to see if they would enjoy it.

I also get a lot of drummers say to me that they wish they could read music, but it seems so difficult.

This course is aimed at the following people:

- Complete beginners who want to try drumming and start with the basics

- Drummers who want to learn to read & understand drum notation

- Drummers who want to work on stick control & the rudiments

- Anyone (regardless of instrument) interested in learning about rhythm, music theory, playing to click and improving time-keeping.

The course is suitable for ages 8 plus, with no upper age limit.

You will learn skills and techniques that will be transferable in a number of different ways. You will be given exercises that are so easy to understand, but will challenge you. I'll also teach you things that you could spend the rest of your life practicing.

First Class Drums is bringing the Online Summer Drummer School 2020 to your home. Students are being accepted now.
