Rock School Exams

Personal Equipment

All pupils will require access to an email address, drumsticks, a computer or tablet and a metronome (this can be an application for mobile handsets, tablets or a standalone unit.) for home use. We highly recommend a music stand and practice pad for home use. It is the responsibility of the student, parent / guardian to ensure these are available at all times for practice. To get the most out of the lessons and course we recommend practicing daily for a minimum of 20 minutes, the more practice the better.

Students are to bring to each lesson

  • Grade books (if applicable)
  • Drumsticks.
  • Bottle of water or other refreshment with a closable, non-spill cap.
