Hm.. I've heard of My Drum School (MDS) taking in children 7 and above. Maybe you can give it a try? They're a music school specialising in drums only - Something pretty rare for music schools I think? But I don't think they specialise in drumming for children. I.e. they have courses for teens and adults too. I'll suggest you search it up? Hope this helps! :)

My 6 year old DS3 is learning drums at Academy of Rock. They have a few branches around Singapore....Goldhill square, Siglap and Holland V. As long as the child is tall enough to reach the paddle of the base drum and is able to follow instruction, he/she can start learning.

Practice playing drum at home

Postby hardworking_mom » Fri Mar 23, 2012 10:50 am

My boy started started learning drum in a music school since Jan. As he is interested, I am keen to buy a set of acoustic drums for him to practice at home. I was told that the 'Pearl' brand is quite suitable and further more, nowadays they can 'mute' the sound volume since installed in a HDB flat. Wonder if anyone has any experience in learning and practising drum at home? thanks :smile:
