    About Us

    This is Wayne Patterson aka "The drum guru".

    With over 21 years of experience on drums I'll teach you everything you need to know about drumming from the bare basics to the most intricate styles, techniques, solos, song study and so much more.

    Face to face, online or at your premises. Travel fee applies for any area out of Brackenfell and close surrounds.

    Face to face lessons are taught on an Alesis Nitro electric kit.

    At R150 per 1 hour lesson weekly, I'll teach you how to play drums in no time with my self developed method.

    My drumming journey began in 2000 (aged 14). I was trained as a Latin and jazz drummer for the school band and in 2002 I achieved my half colors for drumming.

    I completed my grades up until matric in music (rock school).

    I'm 2003, my matric year, I was introduced to metal and hard rock through a friend and immediately in was hooked on the intricate styles of drumming and decided to develop my skills in this genre.

    Today, 21 years later, I have gained so much experience in all styles of drumming and adapt that in a self developed teaching method.

    I also have experience both on stage and in studio where I have recorded 1 demo album and 2 studio albums with previous bands back in Port Elizabeth.

    I was part of the following bands to mention but a few:

    Existence Below
    Karbon Black
    The Righteous
    The 13th floor
    Calling on June.

    Here in Cape Town I'm part of a group called Against All Odds.

    I also managed to land a 3 week gig with a cover band from the Philippines when I was over in China 6 years ago.

    My experience has taught me the fundamentals and techniques to teach others.

    With my self developed method I teach everything there is to know about drumming from the bare basics (posture, door placement on pedals, holding the sticks correctly to the most basic 4 and 8 beats) to the most intricate double bass drumming, solos, fills and beats.

    My students have all passed the course with a overall of 97%.

    Oncd the course is complete I present a laminated certificate with confidence that you'll be to drum to any song comfortably.

    Easy payment methods.

    I look forward in sharing my knowledge with you.
