Dynamic Drum Program
What’s It All About?
The Dynamic Drum Program is a great program to help prepare for the demands of Secondary College. With a head start on learning percussion, students become very familiar with the technique, musicality and performance aspects of the percussion family and become significantly more prepared for future orchestral and band commitments.
How Is The Dynamic Drum Program Taught?
The format involves group tuition of up to 5 students in a weekly half-hour lesson, involving one tutor. This depends on the number of students enrolled in the program, the space and the time constraints. Note: private individual lessons can be arranged and are held for 30 minutes after hours at Crystal Valley Music store teaching rooms. With the use of electronic practice kits and headphones provided by CVM each lesson, the tutor spends time with each student as well the students working together as a group. Group tuition provides great opportunities for students to work together in skill development and presentation. An annual CVM concert is held each year for parents and friends.
How Much Does It Cost?
Group lessons for 2020 cost $15 per lesson and private lessons at $32 per half hour lesson (includes GST). Fees are payable on your invoice and may be made by Cash or EFT – information required for this appears on the invoice. All tutors are obliged to give the number of lessons your child has been invoiced for. The exception to this rule is when a child is absent from school on extended holidays or a lengthy illness. Should these exceptions apply to you, please contact the CVM office and an adjustment will be made.
Please note that CVM is not obliged to make up lessons missed due to general illness, school camps, etc., but will endeavour to do so as much as possible. Invoices MUST be paid within the 14 day period so as to maintain a secured place for your child.

When Are Lessons Conducted?
Depending on the School and Teacher availability, lessons are conducted in school time, recess and lunch time, before and after school.
Is An Instrument Necessary?
A set of drums is not integral to begin with as students begin with practicing the basic drumming patterns set for them. There are various instrumental options available at a variety of costs. Please refer enquiries to Joe Davis.
When Do Lessons Commence?
Term 1 2020 lessons will commence early to mid February. The date of commencement will be confirmed via a personal text message and invoice, sent out after the receipt of your Enrolment Form.
