Am I too old to learn drums? 2017-03-19T12:48:22+00:00

You are never too old! I actually find, contrary to common belief, that adults learn faster than kids.

Most of my students are adults between 20 – 60 years old who always had a dream about playing and finally taken the steps to fulfil that dream.

What to bring to my lesson? 2017-03-19T12:49:35+00:00

 Please bring the following to your lesson;

  • Sticks/brushes
  • Notebook to write up ideas/exercises
  • Folder for your drum notation sheets
  • Your own earbuds/headphones if you like 
What drum kit to buy? 2017-03-19T12:50:37+00:00

I know it can be overwhelming buying your 1st drum kit. Therefore I’m happy to help you find a drum kit, either new or 2nd hand, acoustic or electronic kit.

I have helped many students get a hold of their 1st drum kit, either through gumtree/ebay or new kits through my local drum store.


How to pronounce the teachers name? 2017-03-19T12:51:35+00:00

Yup, I know my name can be a mouthful. Joachim can be pronounced U-R-KIM. I have a few different nicknames I go by though which I’m happy for you to call me; ‘J’ or ‘Yukes’.
