Electro Drum Corps Is Drum Tuition that embraces live performance to inspire, motivate and reward young drummers.

Electro Drum Corps teaches beginners the fundamentals of hand technique, notation reading and rhythm skills. The EDC course provides modern, electronica style backing tracks composed specifically, to support students technical development and to frequently showcase progress. In a matter of weeks, absolute beginners can experience the thrill and satisfaction of performing live. 

EDC can come to you and provides all equipment necessary for lessons and performance. Lessons are available in both individual and group format. Online Lessons are also available.


The motivation, excitement and sense of achievement experienced through live performance, is key to fostering a young musician’s efforts to practice, focus and consistently improve. Drawing from over 15 years of tuition experience, Electro Drum Corps has carefully designed the tuition process to capitalise on this.

Many young students who attend standard private tuition, enjoy their time with the tutor and on the instrument, but with no outlet to use or showcase their skills, they often don’t find the motivation to practice and hone their technique and knowledge.

A student who is proud of their skills and has regular opportunities to display their ability, will always be more likely to find the motivation to practice and improve, and gain so much more from their music.”

Electro Drum Corps also offers online lessons. Operating from our purpose built recording and teaching studio, we use professional audio and video recording equipment to provide students with the best possible online learning experience. Students will have access to multiple camera angles, screen shares, and “live interactive” lesson documents. Tutors can edit and add additional notes to lesson documents in real time, creating an experience very similar to an in person lesson.

Students also have access to their own personal cloud based storage location containing all lesson notes and supporting material. Students can use this location as their home base for accessing lesson material or download content as they wish. Online is obviously perfect for any organisation where location is limiting access to tutors, or if social distancing guidelines are preventing your organisation from offering music lessons.

 We are happy to connect via almost any application that suits your organization’s current setup.
