FAQ

There are three levels of online membership:

‘Foundation’, which will give you unlimited access to all of the pre-recorded lessons of the Level 1 and Level 2 content from our syllabus. You will also get unlimited access to the pre-recorded lessons on songs at Levels 1 & 2, as well as the Trinity College London Drum Kit Grade pieces for Initial, Grade 1 & Grade 2; the Trinity Rock & Pop pieces for Initial, Grade 1 & Grade 2, and Trinity College London Snare Drum Grade 1 & Grade 2.

The ‘Intermediate’ Online Membership gives you access to everything at the Foundation Level, as well as the content for Levels 3, 4, & 5 of our syllabus; the songs at levels 3, 4 & 5; and all the Trinity Grade Pieces for Grades 3, 4 & 5.

The ‘Advanced’ Online Membership gives you unlimited access to everything at both the Foundation and Intermediate Levels, as well as the content for Levels 6, 7 & 8 of our syllabus; the songs at levels 6, 7 & 8; and all the Trinity Grade Pieces for Grades 6, 7 & 8.

All three Online Memberships also give you access to a monthly Q&A session with John Vooght, to go through any questions that you might have on any of the content.

You’ll get a reserved weekly individual lesson slot with one of our teachers at our studios in Letchworth, Hertfordshire, in the UK. In the lessons you will go over everything in our syllabus with the ongoing in-person support of a teacher. 

When you sign up for an Online Membership, you will be prompted to make payment for your first month of your membership with your debit or credit card. The card you make payment with will be charged every month, on the same date you signed up, until you cancel your membership.

After signing up for a studio membership you will be offered a choice of weekly lesson slots. Once you’ve chosen your preferred slot, an initial invoice will be sent to you to cover the lessons in the current month, plus any lesson materials that will be needed for the lessons, such as workbooks and grade books. After this initial payment, you will be asked to set up a monthly standing order to start on the first day of the following month, which will continue until your membership is cancelled.

If you’re a complete beginner, then start at Foundation level. If you can already play the drums and haven’t yet achieved your drum kit grade 2, or aren’t quite able to play at that level yet, then start at Foundation Level.

If you can play to a grade 3, 4, or 5 standard already, then start at the Intermediate Level. And if you can play at a grade 6, 7 or 8 level, then start at the Advanced Level. 

If you are on the cusp of a level, ie. at grade 2 standard or grade 5 standard, it’s best to sign up at that level. For instance, if you’re at a grade 2 standard, then sign up at the Foundation Level; and if you’re at a grade 5 level, sign up at the Intermediate level. That way you can make sure you have all the skills necessary to move on to the next level.

If you’re unsure what level you’re currently at, then contact us, and we can ascertain your level.

At our studios, we put on regular drum workshops, where small groups of drummers of similar level get together and go through exercises and pieces with a teacher. These workshops are great for your growth as a player, as you get a good amount of time to work on skills such as playing in an ensemble, improvising and soloing, and time to improve the fundamentals such as technique, rhythm, rudiments, and speed. With the added benefit of friendly competition, the drum workshops really accelerate your progress.

The Live Music Workshops are when musicians of the same level get together to play music together. You’ll play as a drummer of a full band, and work on playing and performing a song. You’ll get to play with guitarists, bass players, keyboard players, singers, and more. 

The workshops hone your skills as a musician and get you working on the things you can’t necessarily do in a private lesson.

Absolutely! We encourage everyone to be a member of The Drummers Workshop, which is completely free. So you can be a workshop member plus an online or studio member. We also have students that are both online and studio members.

You can cancel your membership at any time by contacting us by email.
