Learn all aspects of Drumming

RSL Awards is a global leader in contemporary arts education that operates in over 50 countries. They created what is know as the Rockschool Drums grades. At the Drum Head Academy we teach Grades Debut through to Grade 8.

Each Grade book contains 12 songs from a wide range of genres along with technical exercises that will take your Drumming to the next level. This structured syllabus makes learning Drums fun and rewarding. 

You sit an exam at the end of learning each grade ( More info below )

and receive a certificate. Dylan has completed all Grade exams with distinction so you will have piece of mind knowing your tutor has been exactly where you are.
