About The Drums

Drums are an increasingly popular instrument to pick up for both children and adults. The drum is widely known as the backbone of any musical genre, and is important in the creation of music and addition of texture to any genre.

Popularity aside, learning the drums is an effective way to promote motor skills and improve sensory development and enhanced memorisation skills. It also acts as a great stress reliever, rendering it a popular instrument option for adults to pick up. Furthermore, drums are also a relatively easier musical instrument to pick up as opposed to other non-percussion instruments.

Here in Singapore, another popular drum variation that students pick up is the cajon. While students largely learn the drums as a recreational activity, students can also opt to undergo practical and theory assessment under the ABRSM/Trinity syllabus, where students will go through Practical Drum exams consisting of pieces, scales and arpeggios, sight-reading and aural tests. Under the ABRSM syllabus, students will be graded upon 150 marks, and are required to achieve 100 marks to pass, 120 marks to obtain a ‘Merit’ and 130 marks to achieve a ‘Distinction’. Under the Trinity syllabus, students are required to obtain 60 marks out of 100 to obtain a pass, 75 marks for a ‘Merit’ and 87 marks for a ‘Distinction’.

At MindFlex, we offer high-quality Drum Lessons in Singapore to guide students on their music journey with the drums or cajon. We take pride in our highly qualified and passionate drum teachers that will devote their time and attention in helping their students excel well in both theory and practical aspects of learning the instrument, whether it is for assessment or recreation. With MindFlex’s Best Drum Lessons, students will definitely be adequately prepared for the Drum Grade (1 – 8) examinations under ABRSM/Trinity syllabus. Contact us today and let us help you find the most suitable drum music teacher for you/your child!

What Are The 6 Most Important Criteria to Look For in A Singing Teacher?

1. Qualifications and Abilities To Teach Drum

At MindFlex, our selection of drum teachers ranges from experienced music instructors to casual instructors, as well as both diploma and degree holders with varying years of experience in both teaching and drum playing. It is crucial for students to engage drum teachers with the right qualifications and abilities – for example, for students who want to pursue drums seriously, it might be better to engage a teacher with more experience. In contrast, for students interested in picking up the instrument as a hobby or casually, it might be more cost-efficient to pick a drum teacher with a diploma/Grade 8 qualifications.

2. Strong Drum Background and Experience In Teaching Students

It is crucial to check if the drum teacher you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching students of similar levels and age group. With such experience, they will then be familiar with the current syllabus and examination practices. For example, it will not make sense to engage a drum teacher that has only taught students from Grades 1-3 if you are seeking to take your Grade 8 drum examination. Similarly, it will not be beneficial to engage a drum teacher who has only taught teenagers or adults if you are looking for a drum teacher for your young child.

3. Highly-Skilled in Playing The Instrument

It is important that the drum teacher is well-versed and skilled with the instrument to ensure that the teacher is able to teach students how to play the drums. It would also be highly beneficial should the teacher specialise in the drums only as it would signify the teacher’s strong experience and skills in the instrument. With a competent and highly skilled drum teacher, students will be able to effectively learn and play the instrument, thus fully maximising their time in their drum music lessons!

4. Well-versed in Practical And Theory of Drumming

It is also important that the drum teacher is familiar with both theoretical and practical aspects of the drums in order to ensure a full learning experience during the lessons. Here at MindFlex, we make sure to include the teacher’s abilities and experiences in teaching drum students to help you with your selection. By ensuring that the drum teacher is fully qualified to teach both practical and theory aspects, it ensures that you are getting the most out of your money and time!

5. Highly Committed and Passionate About Teaching Drums

When it comes to learning anything, from academics to music, it would definitely be advantageous to have a passionate and dedicated teacher to assist students in their learning. With one’s passion and devotion into teaching students, the drum teacher will be able to identify and understand their students’ learning pace, interest and areas of weakness. Apart from the teacher’s dedication level, be sure to check if the teacher can commit to the arranged drum lessons and if he/she is willing to follow through the schedule. That way, both parties will be able to build a trusted teacher-student relationship, which will allow better engagement between both parties.

6. Strong Track Record and Testimonial Base From Previous Students

One good indication of a good drum teacher would be the strong track record and/or testimonial base that the teacher has accumulated over his/her years of teaching the musical instrument. We highly recommend students to check if the teacher has past testimonials from parents and students. On our part, MindFlex will include testimonials and indicate whether the chosen drum teacher has received good feedback from previous clients. That way, you will be able to have an easy and smooth experience selecting a capable Drum Teacher for yourself or your child.
