Once a solid technical foundation has been built, we then explore the different drums genres available to a drums player like contemporary, rock, pop, metal, classical, Australian Music Examination Board Exams, musical theatre, jazz, etc.

Students will be able to learn more notes, rhythms and songs in the next few drums lessons and will learn how to vary the sounds on the drums. Students will find the beginner stage of the drums fun, just like learning a new language and full of stories on how their improvement is related to lots of practice and structured homework.

What are music examinations?

Music examinations are a good tool for students who want to continually improve their playing and performance ability and to have their playing ability graded on a recurring basis. Music examinations allow students to grade their performance ability every six months ( certain instruments ), provides goals for students to aim for and provides a professional grading system for students. Shine Music School encourages exams but are not enforced on students. Our primary aim is for students to have fun exploring their chosen instrument.

Students are only encouraged to attempt examinations when they have attained a certain level of competence and ability. At Shine Music School, all our teachers are Australian Music Examinations Board ( AMEB ) , Contemporary Popular Music ( CPM) and Associated Board of the Royal School of Music ( ABRSM UK) registered and we cater for Jazz, Rock, Pop and Classical exams for all instruments.

How much should the student practise?

Practicing everyday is the most effective and fastest way of improving your skills as a musician. If you practice only every now and then, your improvement will be inconsistent. Even with just 10 minutes every day, you will notice an improvement week to week. Of course, the longer you practice every day, the better, 30 minutes is a good goal to aim for, as long as it is everyday!
