The best drum books & methods

  • In addition to my own books, which are presented below, I own an impressive collection of the best works by other authors. This represents a wealth of resources and knowledge about the drums that is probably unique in Geneva.
  • Many of these method books include audio, which makes it possible to approach most styles of music in an optimal way.
  • jazz, pop, rock, blues, funk, soul, R&B, fusion, Latin, etc.

Individual Lessons

Weekly one-on-one lessons, for the whole school year, except during school holidays.
Bi-weekly as well as double lessons are also possible.

Five-Day Intensive Course

Five lessons in a week, for an initiation, as a refresher, or to prepare for your band's next studio session.
This formula can be an advanced course, but it is also suitable to get beginners started before starting weekly lessons.
