Frequently Asked Questions

Am I too old to learn the Drums?

If you are still able to move your upper and lower limbs, you are young enough to learn the Drums. Our oldest drum student to date is 69 years old.

At what age can my child learn the Drums?

We do not have a minimum age requirement, what we look at is a child's genuine interest in the drums.

I have not much coordination, will the Drums be too difficult for me?

As with every activity or hobby, practice is the most important ingredient to success. Some are blessed with faster reflexes and better coordination, but commitment trumps them all. You'll be surprised at how fast you can improve on the drums with just 15 minutes of practice time.

So will the Drums be too difficult?

Our drum teachers are trained to break down each drum lesson for you in a way that will be easy to understand. Their years of experience will enable them to swiftly identify your learning style, ensuring that each lesson's content is presented to you in a simple and structured manner.

I am still worried that I will not be able to benefit from the Drum Lessons.

We offer one-off introductory lessons that will enable you to explore the drums while getting comfortable with the drum teacher. We are confident that you will have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Please note that we do not offer free trials.

Do I have to take Drum Lessons every week?

We believe that regular weekly drum lessons are crucial to a student's progress and therefore, we require every drum student to attend one lesson per week during their scheduled time slot. We usually do not advise taking more than one lesson per week, unless the student has sufficient time to practice the prescribed materials before the next lesson.

Do you offer Graded Drum Examinations?

Yes, we are partners with Rockschool Singapore. We proudly offer their full Drum Syllabus and Graded Drum Examinations. Find out more about Rockschool Examinations and Syllabus.

What if I just want to learn the Drums for fun?

Playing the drums is a great way to de-stress during the work week. At Berakah Music, we believe that learning the drums through your favourite songs is the best way to fuel your interest. We strive to ensure that our drum students enjoy every single lesson, developing their passion to excel. We complement this satisfying experience with our own Drum Syllabus when there is a need to address certain drum techniques that are critical to a student's drumming development.
