Get Dad A Drum Lesson

Download-Fathers-Day-Pic

Its all about the World Cup this summer of sport, but perhaps your Dad isn’t a football fan, or maybe he is but he also thinks he could cut it as a Drummer, then why not test these potential skills with a Drum Lesson this Fathers Day?

The problem is that Dad maybe thinks he could be up onstage to a sell out crowd playing a massive summer Festival like Leeds Festival, Download or Glastonbury. Or perhaps he’s got a dream seat at the back of the stage playing for adoring crowds on an Arena tour around the country but the reality is the air drumming is usually alone; or in the car!

Well, its maybe time to test Dad to see what its like?

Playing the Drums is challenging but also hugely rewarding. Its exciting and explosive, having the feel of real power and volume in your hands. What better way to enjoy your favourite music, right?

By Booking a £20, 1 hour Drum Lesson this Fathers Day, you can also get an optional second lesson at 25%* less!

All you have to do is use the Contact Form below, add a small comment with Dads Name and CHECK the “Get Dad A Drum Lesson” box and we will be in contact!

 

 

*Second Lesson is bookable after the First Lesson, with a 25% lesson price (£15) discount on successful completion of the First lesson. No Sign up or minimum lessons is required. All Terms and Conditions can be found HERE

New Year’s Resolution!?

dscn0410What does 2017 have in store for you?

Planning something exciting? Some new way to preoccupy your time or learning a new skill?

To achieve a successful change in lifestyle or a new past time it takes a number of steps to make it work, Here are 6 to help you on your way..

The first point to think about is to pick just one thing. There is no need to try and shoot at multiple targets and miss, select one and make sure you do it well and satisfy your own progress.

Secondly, make a good plan of what is necessary and what might be needed. It could be that your new venture might cost more than you think!!! A third consideration would be to anticipate problems and so developing patience would be key here. Most new skills take time to learn and perfect so establishing a reasonable learning curve would help in achieving goals and show positive results.

A fourth point, one which is commonly overlooked, is to pick a start date, or even a length of time to complete certain activities or goals. Don’t pick random dates and fail to prepare adequately; time and again some negative experiences make a resolution short! Linking this to point number five; expect to fail! Not everything will go your way, some things take a lot more control and discipline, therefore, embrace the failures and provide this as a catalyst to succeed even further next time!

The last point, or the sixth on the list, is to just go for it! At whatever stage, at whatever cost, ability, access or age, most new choices can be daunting but there is always a way. It does not always have to cost the earth or for you to be Gods gift from the beginning. Take a chance on yourself and dedicate some time to do something you want to do and make 2017 the year that you want it to be!

At GhostNote Academy we can provide all of the elements to achieve all those outlined above. We can work with you to keep track on your targets, to develop a key skill or even just to get you started. We have all the equipment you need, playing and learning out of Melrose Yard Studios on a full studio drum kit, there is no outlying cost of purchasing all manner of gear. There are also exclusive opportunities to receive or claim promotional offers on lessons to assist on saving money further, just don’t forget your hearing protection!!

Of course, there will be times when you feel that your not making progress; indeed, many drummers (myself included) would consider themselves to be continually learning new skills, its just an evolution of your sound! Despair not, we have the experience and the patience needed to underline those achievements and take the time to work on those stubborn tricks that make you scorn your sticks! So make a note in your diary/calendar, pick a suitable date in the new year and make it count!

We are excited to start an amazing new year and hope you will join us too!

Happy New Year!! 🙂
