Drums Course

Drums Courses


In drums classes, the learning of the drums is done through exercises, but also through music by your favorite artists. For the youngest, the introductory phase classes focus on the fun and games aspect. There is no age to start playing an instrument; children, teenagers, adults or seniors, our classes are open to all.

Objectives and skills

Development of key skills:

  • Independence
  • Coordination
  • Groove
  • Breaks, fills, exits
  • Rudiment

This study is done through pieces of music of various styles, chosen according to the tastes of the student(s), in order to correspond to their desires and desires. Students will also learn the maintenance and structure of their instrument, as well as how to read scores.

Concerning this last point, it is important to specify that at Apolline's, music theory is integrated into the instrument course, sparingly and in a manner consistent with the subject studied by the child. Thus, theory sticks to practice and becomes digestible and interesting. To learn more about this subject, see our article on music theory lessons.

Learning music with Apolline

How do you get out of the usually rigid framework of the early years of musical learning found in most schools in Switzerland? 

Based in Lausanne, Apolline has a different philosophy. Rather than offering children and teenagers the opportunity to learn in individual lessons, the emphasis is on small group lessons - of 2 or even 3 students, depending on the instrument. This group work will encourage listening, playing with others, improvisation, as well as a sense of musical sharing. The students will progress technically, while having the pleasure of playing music. The extra motivation generated by learning and progressing together is an important driving force.

The groups are always formed according to the age and level of competence of the students, in order to allow a coherent exchange and dynamic progression. For more information, see our article on private VS semi-private music lessons.

Apolline offers its students the possibility of integrating a music band workshop, in addition to the basic instrument course, to allow them to play with other musicians of their own age. Accompanied by a teacher, they will learn to play in a group, through covers or their own compositions.
