Learn the drums, lead the band…
The Drummer is essential to a band. Even at a basic level, you need to be confident as you are leading the rhythm section. The best way to start is with basic beat patterns, and practice them slow enough, to understand how your hands and feet are interacting. We have teamed up with one of the best drum and percussion teachers in Dublin to provide you with the best experience in drum training. If you want to start playing the drums and be sure of a smooth start, or you want to improve your playing to the next level, and for good, then you should go for one of our drum lesson programs.
The Drum Lessons with Simply Music, Dublin 2
About Damian our Drum Teacher:
Damian started playing drums at age 14. The love of the instrument made him pursue various genres of rock, pop, electronic music and metal. Besides teaching, Damian has been a session drummer for the last 6 years with plenty of touring and studio experience.
Currently a member of a progressive/ Industrial Metal band Nebůlaris.
Rock, pop and metal are the main focused genres in the lessons. Other genres such as blues, jazz,
latino, funk and hip hop are also covered. All ages and all levels are welcome.
From complete beginners to touring drummers the learning never ends.
For beginners, Damian focuses on the absolute basics, exploring what genres speak to the
student and the necessities to be able to play their favorite songs within just a few months.
The intermediate drummers will get help on getting out of that rut we always find ourselves in by applying a detailed practice routine and advice to becoming a performing drummer and how to be in a band.
For the more advanced players, Damian has a passion for body mechanics so the focus would
be more on technique and posture to get your full potential out of your drumming.

5 Reasons why it’s great to play the drums
1 – It´s easy
We often wrongly assume that playing the drums is harder that any other instrument, it´s not! Every instrument has its own challenges and it´s not more challenging for the drums, it´s just different. Basic rhythms, and rudiments, breaks that go with them can be learned in no time. It´s a question of patience and perseverance, like everything else!!
2 – It doesn’t have to be loud
Again we have a wrong assumption here, while it´s true that acoustic drums could be noisy for your neighbors, you can now get great affordable electronic drum-kits that can easily fit into a corner of the room. They keep us modern drummers in the game…no excuses not to practice, in any circumstances:)
3 – The beat of a drum is essential
Like your own heartbeat, the beat of a drum is the heart of the music, and even if the drummer is not at the front on stage, his role is essential. Life is made of rhythms, it´s a primary element in the music. One of the distinct differences with drums and drum lessons is you don´t have to learn any melodic notes or scales. You´re driving the music and giving it a tempo, a pace, a groove!
4 – A drummer can easily find a band
In Dublin, and in Ireland in general, if you become a good drummer you have a good chance to find a great band. From an amateur to a professional perspective, whatever your project is, you´ll be in demand, and will have more interesting opportunities, as opposed to other musicians like singers or guitarists.
5 – Interaction with other musicians
From an early stage, you will quickly have to play in a band configuration, with other instruments. As part of our Drum lesson program students who would like to avail of our band workshops can have a great opportunity to play with other learning musicians, and as an added bonus, we offer this at no extra cost..
