Private, Partner & Group Lessons
The New School offers lessons for beginner, intermediate and advanced students in drum kit (all styles, from beginner to diploma level) and Irish percussion (bodhrán, bones and spoons). Weekly private (one-to-one) lessons are 30, 45 or 60 minutes in length. Group lessons, designed for students at the same level of proficiency who enrol together, are available as 30-, 45- or 60-minute ‘partner’ lessons, as well as 60-minute lessons for 3 or 4 students. Single 1- or 2-hour bodhrán or drum kit Intensive Lessons for both individuals and small groups are also available.
Group Courses for Beginners
Beginning students may join Introducing Bodhrán, which offers an in-depth introduction to this popular instrument, as well as Introducing Latin Percussion, which combines instruction in several instruments with ensemble playing in traditional and contemporary Latin rhythms and styles. Both courses are followed by courses for intermediate and advanced groups (subject to minimum enrolment).
Advanced bodhrán students may be interested in joining Rig-a-Jig, our traditional music group. Drum kit students may be interested in joining one of our Jazz Ensembles.
Drumming Around the World, Sounds African and Sounds Samba are exciting one-hour workshops combining dynamic live demonstrations with fun and fascinating activities designed to help young people develop their musical awareness through the exploration of rhythms and percussion instruments from Latin America or Africa.
