Private drum lessons at Maxx Music Castle Hill and Maxx Music Rouse Hill

Congratulations on taking the first step to realising your dreams as a drummer

Maxx Music Music Schools in Rouse Hill and Castle Hill are recognised as the largest Music School in Sydney, providing guitar tuition to students of all ages from 5yrs + to adult and all levels from beginner drumming to advanced drum lessons in all styles including rock & punk. funk & RnB, reggae, jazz and Latin to name a few.

The drumkit is considered to be the heart of any band with the drummer providing the backbone of the band.  Whether you want to rock out, improve your skills for the school band or just play the drums for your own pleasure, Maxx Music can help you achieve your musical aspirations.

HOW LONG IS A LESSON?

Lessons are available in 30mins blocks.  We have found that a 30mins lesson provides enough material for students, with otherwise busy lives, to keep them stimulated between lessons and progressing at a sustainable pace.  For those who are wanting a more intense program, hour long lessons are available.

DO YOU OFFER GROUP LESSONS?

No.  We don’t offer group instrumental lessons.  We find that people learn more quickly and consistently in a focused one on one environment.  By offering one on one lessons it is possible to individually tailor all lessons for the student. Students are offered the opportunity to play in a band or other ensemble in our School Holiday program, providing them with a new perspective and motivation for learning.

HOW OLD SHOULD MY CHILD BE TO TAKE DRUM LESSONS?

It is our experience at Maxx Music that children need to be of school age to achieve the best results from their guitar lessons.  However, there are always exceptional cases. Adults and mature aged students are encouraged! Currently our youngest student is 5yrs and our most senior student is a sprightly 70 years of age.

WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE LESSONS WITH MAXX MUSIC? 

Over 10,000 students can’t be wrong!!

At Maxx Music we understand that choosing the right music school for your drum lessons in North West Sydney is a very important decision.  To get the best results from your drum lessons, or your children’s guitar lessons, you require skilled guitar teachers who can guide you to realise your goals in your chosen genre.

Many of our teachers are professional, working guitarists, not only skilled in their instrument but as performing entertainers.  All of the Maxx Music guitar teachers have undergone and passed a rigorous induction to ensure you the best outcomes for your investment.

DO I NEED MY OWN DRUM KIT?

Yes, although you don’t need it immediately.  Our Music School drum rooms are all equipped with state-of-the-art Roland electronic drumkits.  You just need to bring your own drumsticks. For practice at home, we recommend you start off with a practice pad and stand which is great for beginners.  The rubber of the pad offers a similar rebound and feel to a drum kit and the raised edge around outside of the pad is good for practicing rim shots.  With time, you might want to upgrade to a full drum kit – electronic or acoustic.  Our knowledgeable, experienced sales staff in Castle Hill and Rouse Hill stores will be able to help you find the right drum kit for you.  Don’t forget, as a student of Maxx Music, you receive a 10% discount!

ELECTRIC OR ACOUSTIC DRUM KIT?

The choice between electric drum kit and acoustic drum kit is dependent on many factors such as the preference of the student, available space and closeness of neighbours and available budget.  An electric drum kit can be very flexible instrument, providing the functionality of an acoustic kit in a smaller, more portable and quieter form. Many of the electric drum kit technological features, such as inbuilt metronome and the ability to play tracks from an mp3 player to jam to can be helpful and fun for a beginner drummer.   Ultimately, the best drum kit is the one that you will practice on most. It is highly recommended that you come into our Rouse Hill or Castle Hill store with the student so we can discuss their desired outcomes and recommend the instrument most suitable for achieving this.

Do students get the opportunity to perform?

Yes.  At Maxx Music we know that performing is a really important element of learning to play an instrument or sing.  We have a small workshop/performance space called The Session Space at Rouse Hill which we use for small recitals for younger or less experienced students.  In addition, we also have a showcase performance once a year where more experienced students can perform.  

I have a Creative Kids NSW Voucher.  Can I redeem it at Maxx Music?

No problem!  As a registered Creative Kids provider you can use your voucher towards the costs of one on one guitar lessons (minimum 4 lessons), our one-day holiday workshops and our weekly groups and classes.  Just print off the voucher and bring it in with you.  We’ll also need your child’s birthday so that we can redeem your voucher.

Child Safety

At Maxx Music, we take the safety of children in our care very seriously.  Maxx Music is a Child Safe Organisation.  This means that, as well as our teachers all having valid Working With Children Checks, we have clear and robust Child Safety Policy and Guidelines.

Do I have to read music?

Similar to guitar, many great drummers do not read music.  However, the desired outcome at Maxx Music is to produce well rounded musicians who are not restricted to any particular style or genre.  To this end, it is highly recommended that the student learns to read music. Our experienced drum teachers will teach students to read and write music in a simple and fun way, whilst also developing good playing technique from the beginning.

Yes.  Maxx Music can help you study for, and pass both AMEB and Rock School Exams.  Visit our Exams pages to find out more.
