DrumWise is a drum tuition company that was started in 2004 that offers private one-to-one and shared drum tuition at the DrumWise studio and in schools throughout Kent for all ages and abilities. To date, our youngest student started lessons aged 4 and our oldest is still drumming at 92!
The content of lessons is tailored to the individual's requirements which includes following the DrumWise syllabus, learning different styles of drumming, improving technique and working towards Duke of Edinburgh Awards (DofE) and Rockschool graded exams.
